Starting out a new life in Spain

Suntans

One of the things that I was never able to fathom, was how the people who live in Spain (I think its unwise to just say Spanish now as there are so many nationalities living in Spain now) never seem to be that bothered about a Tan...at least that what I was thinking when I was sprawled out like a turkey basting for Xmas lunch on my two week vacation.

Well after seeing the sun rise daily (apart from the dip into rain a few days back) you become so accustomed to it being there that a little snooze for 30 minutes during the day is the most I need now.  The ubiquitous tan is no longer the holy grail searched for 2 weeks..though of course on a weekend I slip into bad habits as we slope off the to beach for a family day out, thinking that if I was back in Ireland I'd be wrapped up in warm weather gear rather than being in beach shorts.

All in all I have a feeling that this was a great move and watching the kids run up and down the beach, with us as a family enjoying every moment, why would you ever want to be anywhere else?

I've got my best suntan ever this year by avoiding sunbathing and wearing factor 50 while on the golf course. As you say, knowing the sun is going to be there day after day takes that need to go and bake in it away and I've not had to deal with the risk of burning or peeling and have a lovely healthy colour.
