Under the Sun

There are so many fun ways to enjoy the summer season. In tropical countries like where I came from, going to the beach resorts or staying over night in rented private pools help us cool ourselves from the scorching heat. Even going to air conditioned, giant malls without shopping became a habit to those who don’t want to spend more on their electricity at home. You won’t see us walking along the streets and having fun

Here of course is different. Although people would also spend their time in public swimming pools during a rise in temperature, aside from this they really go out and make the most out of the season. Ride a bike, jog, drive around with their convertibles, a grill party, or even just sit in their garden and read a book are some of the common summer activities here.

When we went to Munich last April we were lucky to have a sunny weather. It was still spring and the wind was a little cooler. We went to the Odeonsplatz and I was really surprised with what I saw.

I thought this was a really great way to spend time under the sun especially those who just love the season. Bean bags were all over where everyone could just sit after hours of walking around, taking pleasure with the historical city. Bookshelves are filled with books for everyone to read. If you live nearby, this could be a great place to meet up with a friend and catch up.

There were also hammocks aside from the bean bags. For those who are more comfortable reading books while lying down, this is just perfect.

As for me, I can never stay there just to read books 😛 . I love the sun, I really do but only when I need to dry my laundry. Hahaha! I just can’t bear the heat when it touches my skin. Despite wearing sunblock, I couldn’t stand it. I’m just thankful that summer here doesn’t feel that hot compared to the one we have back home because of the wind. The wind here is dry and cooler unlike ours which is wet and humid.
