After living in the UK all our lives, the latter years in the harsh Scottish climate, Paul and I moved to Sub Tropical Tenerife almost 4 years ago. The first two "winters" saw us amused at people wearing jackets and being wrapped up in temperatures around 19-20c with holiday makers still spending days on the beach. Our 3rd winter saw us wearing warm clothes and jackets some nights. This winter we've been wearing warm clothes since mid November and resorted to having a duvet and blanket on our bed. It's obvious that we seem to be totally acclimatised now. We've only been back to the UK once in 4 years and that was in June so it was OK. I wonder if it would take 4 years to acclimatise the other way should we ever return? I'm interested in hearing your stories of getting used to a totally different climate to the one you are used to. I've heard some people say that they were never able to fully adjust.
