Tell a Queenslander it’s too warm for your liking and you will quickly be laughed at. As they assume Australia is the warmest country in the world.
I’ve met locals finding it hard to believe it can get warmer than 25 degrees Celsius in Norway. Thinking that 30+ degrees Celsius never happens there.
But on the flip-side, the same cocky bastards tend to whimper like scared little puppies if the temperature drops below 25 degrees Celsius.
As we are closing in on winter– in the southern hemisphere –the weather is becoming a bit milder. Which unfortunately is the hot topic some newspapers.
Apparently any temperature below 25 degrees Celsius is cold. As a summer here can easily hit 35+ degrees Celsius I can understand anything below 14 degrees Celsius seems cold, but claiming that 20 degrees Celsius is cold is nothing but hyperbole.
After living here for almost three years now, I get the impression that those who actually find 20 degrees Celsius are a minority. And I guess I’m more fortunate, coming from a country where one season the temperature might reach -30 degrees Celsius and the other might reach 30 degrees Celsius – so I’m used to both extremes.
