Glasgow’s real summer

These photos might be of my last real summer in Glasgow (for the next few years at least). The summer was described to be real because good weather like this do not normally last long in Scotland. British weather is well-known for its gloominess. Coming from a tropical country, I remember vividly how I didn’t notice it during my first year here. It is much wetter in Malaysia but at least I had a car, there wasn’t any strong chilly wind and the rain did not just drizzle for the whole day; except for the heavy traffic congestion and flash floods!
It was when I went to continental Europe one April that I realised the summer over there was much more enjoyable. The sunny days lasted for long spells without rain. During our entire 19 days in Italy this summer, there was a total of 30 minutes of rain. Flying from Italy back to Scotland in October, we seem to have lost our autumn.
With better weather to compare, I had slowly developed the tendency to be ungrateful/ complain about the UK weather. But, when I’m back in Malaysia, I will perhaps miss this gloomy weather (or not). During winter I will always miss the hot sun and under the Malaysia’s blazing sun and sticky humidity, I will probably think that winter, rain and wind in the UK is not that bad after all.
