Spending three days in a row in this beautiful weather was reason enough for me to call my weather luck “The No-Rain-Run”. A new challenge with only one question: How long would my British no-rain-run endure. As it turned out pretty long. During this
suny sunny period I went to London, visited the beautiful castle Kingston Lacy, went to the Durlston County Park on a fairy ferry and enjoyed much time at the beach.
Unfortunately everything has an end and so did my no-rain-run. Last Tuesday, after 16!!! days of picturesque weather, it rained for about 40 minutes. After that it started to hail.
I think, to really let me know I think it was to really let me know that my no-rain-run is over! Now I had have the pleasure to meet Mister rain every day at least for an hour. What made the end of my no-rain-run even worse was the upcoming Eastern Easter weekend. Which obviously meant a four-day weekend and the opportunity to travel England. Well, this plan was literally washed away. No one wanted to spend a lot of money and end up in fog and rain. As the weekend appeared the weather got worse.
Today was the worst, I even had to use a rain jacket! Right?! A rain jacket! Can I get some sympathy. Fun fact about Bournemouth: Nobody ever carries an umbrella. Not because they are all really lazy or used to rain, but because the wind, which is more like a storm, makes it impossible to use one. Anyway, I spent the weekend
with going to the old capital of England, Winchester, going twice to the movies and of course celebrating Eastern. After all, Eastern is news that you can use. Luckily the British focus more on the real background of Eastern rather than chocolate and weird sugar deserts dessert. (Fun Fact about me – for those who didn’t already know – I am Swiss but I don’t like chocolate that’s why I was lucky.)
After the past week I have
the to face the truth and admit that the British weather is like a box of chocolate. Like my host told me at the beginning of my stay: In the morning there can be sunshine, in the afternoon it can rain and in the evening be sunny again. Should you not know what to talk when about liaising with a Brit, the weather is always an interesting topic. My challenge is now to start yet another “no-rain-ran!” and top my previous record. Wish me luck!
Your challenge is to find some mistakes and post them right here! And I know there are some ; - ) Thanks in advanced!
