Has Summer Arrived?

Today was the first beautiful day we’ve enjoyed in Valencia for weeks, and we spent it at the beach with friends (including baby). The forecast for the next few days is looking excellent. Sunny, Sunny, Sunny, Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Sunny, Sunny. Is the Valencian summer here to stay?

We’ve been anticipating the arrival of summer with a mixture of excitement and dread… oppressive heat is worse than freezing cold. But the maximum temperature during the next 7 days is forecast to be 25 Celsius (77 Fahrenheit) — that’s tolerable!

This our first summer in Valencia — are we right to be nervous? Should we schedule an August vacation in Sweden?

UPDATE: We spoke too soon! Sunday saw the re-arrival of nasty, rainy weather. The rain has just strengthened, today, and the streets are full of water. Suck!

    Last August we were the only people in our 7 unit building. Everyone else was on vacation. But it was kind of nice. Yes many stores, restaurants and bars close but apparently it’s not like it used to be so you can still buy bread and have a beer. It was fun going out in the morning and hearing Italian not Spanish.

    Poor tourists were wandering around wondering where everyone was.

    Heat was only bad a few days when the winds came off the land not the sea.

    That being said we are flying to Stockholm on July 31st this year.
