We really haven’t had any summer here yet. At least I don’t call a couple of days with a maximum of 18 degrees and cold wind high summer! Don’t know why I’ve bothered buying any summer clothes at all. I can for sure count, on one hand, the amount of days I’ve worn bare legs. But luckily I’m heading for a week in Barcelona in less than a month. Can’t wait to experience burning sun on my skin, lying on the beach and strolling around in denim cut offs, a singlet and a pair of sandals. So long, Norwegian summer!

>Ahh I would give anything to trade for a bit. I live in Louisiana and the heat is unforgivable. 100•f with 90% humidity! Barcelona sounds great though :)

>Lucky you! Here in Germany it's unbelievably hot. You're absolutely addicted to showering these days, although it doesn't help competing with the heat. No, 40°C aren't nice - do you want to swap?

>Så kjedelig. I Oslo regner det for øyeblikket, men vi har hatt mange dager med kjempebra vær. Får håpe deres tid kommer også :)

>Catarina: Right now I'd rather have dying heat in a city than cloudy and windy weather when it was supposed to be 24 degrees and sunny today... And 42 degrees near the beach sounds amazing!! Yes, can't wait for Barcelona. I've heard so much great about it. Have a nice summer! X

>Great pics! With the 30+ degree heat that we have been having in Prague, I really miss having the sea to cool off in.From what I know, it's 42 degrees in my hometown which is close to the beach, so I know what I will be doing for 3 weeks :)Hope you enjoy Barcelona, it's a great city.x

>Lucky for you that summer did arrive after all! Hopefully it will here as well. Who knows? Maybe we're heading for a hot autumn? xxx
