Guess as older I get as more I dislike the climate and weather here.

I agree, one of the reasons In stopped living here full time.

Spain is pretty cold in winter. 8 degrees in Madrid now. Welcome to that. I would rather have the odd shower and a warm winter.

Yes, agree! I like Spain but prefer Portugal. Benidorm and Costa del Sol are preferable with the Canary Islands even more so. Lisbon doesn't usually get below 15C in Winter. However, one Christmas I stayed in Nazare. For two days we were strongly advised NOT to go outside. After the gales and torrential rain had subsided, I noticed most road signs were blown over almost flat and awnings had been torn off shops, rubbish of all sorts everywhere.

Rubbish !! Pattaya has an average daytime temp of 30-33 C all year round with virtually no rain Dec - March.

But hip-waders suggested April-Nov.  🙏

I use the aircon about two months of the year. Have not even used a fan for the last month.

I am wondering if there is a direct correlation of the level of discomfort, and the size of a poster's beer gut.

Same here, i never sleep with the AC on and only use it much during April/May

Air 'conditioner' ... not so much for temp, but to lower the RH from daily 60-80%, if not 100%, 'dehumidifying' down to a comfy 40-50-60%.


Temps are usually no problem, and I can take 35° up to 40° outside, if in the shade with a breeze.  RH can be a bit much though.  Weather temp, once at body temp/37°, you won't cool off with the breeze as much.


Last 5 yrs living in Memphis area, TN, USA, 38-40° for a month, was not rare, and I worked outside.  Easily 6 months of 35+° those last 5 yrs.   Bit different from 4 seasons at Philly, PA, USA, both mild summers & winters, relative to other extremes of the USA temps.


I keep the house between 27-29, most days & night

Please can you have a word with my Mrs and niece? I always try to set the A/C to 'Dry'. Unfortunately, they both change it to 'Cool' and ask me why I persist in doing this? According to them you can't ever cool down unless you set it to 'Cool'.
