So yeah, I don’t know what on earth was I thinking to move from a sunny, warm climate into the famous English climate again. But the fact is that on Tuesday we were having highs of 27ºC in Porto, and in here I’d be most grateful if the 10ºC barrier would be passed. But it is not the cold that bothers me the most, it is really the lack of sun – the last time I saw the sun was 2 days ago, when the plane was making its descent towards Gatwick. I think I’m starting to understand the desire of old English folks to spend their retirement years in Portugal and Spain… 🙂
And now I’ve began the unavoidable house hunt – trouble is, since I came so late in the term, almost everything was taken, leaving only some not-so-nice properties. Fortunately I managed to find a very good one on my first visit (call that luck!), and if nothing better comes (the three houses that followed couldn’t compare to this one, definitely not!) I will most gladly move there.
I want to sort this accommodation issue ASAP, there are so many interesting challenges up ahead, I really can’t wait to start working! 😀
