Travellers from Northern European countries are bound to flock to the South
these days following the birds` example.
This is not surprising because in order to escape our nasty and cold climate
one should opt for somewhere safe and sunny. "Safe" in this context
means that tourists are not to expect many weather-related surprises when visiting
a holiday destination.
The Canaries (canary islands) are a time-honoured destination, for sure.
For decades now they have been popular with both short-term travellers and
people hibernating on the islands.
What is so special about these islands and in particular the most popular of
these, Gran Canaria?
It is definitely the "joy of life" you will find
there, a friendly and relaxed population, but in particular it is the above
mentioned guarantee of being able to enjoy the sun.
A striking 300 days of sunshine per year are noted on average,
and even on days when the sun does not come out it is warm and agreeable.
So if you simply want a warm place to stay instead of putting on layers of
clothes, or else if your bones react sensitively to the Northern climate this
is your place!
Even in the summer it is agreeably warm, not too hot as there is a constant
wind blowing, which is, however, for the most part not too strong.
The North Sea climate can be tougher!
So, in order to get away from our rainy climate and unpredictable conditions
one should opt for Gran Canaria.
