I must confess: the older I get, the more difficult it is to please me when it comes to traveling.
I’m loving the weather in Cyprus (today 34C, a little too hot) BUT I can’t keep the air con on all the time and I can’t be in the water all the time. So overall is almost unbearable. Sightseeing? Visit ruins and archeological sites? Pass.
So, I’m thinking: probably the best time to visit Cyprus is April/May when the temperatures are not so high and the wind might be cooler.
Then there are places that are too cold in winter but might be ok in summer. Like Norway, Sweden and Finland. My guess, I’ve only been to Norway, in May and it was sunny but around 18C (not as windy as in the UK, which made it easier to move around).
I’m not a fan of extremes. Neither too hot not too cold, so spring and autumn are normally my favourite seasons.
Another thing that is coming with old age is how picky I am about locations, but this is something for another post.
