spain/heat?

hi all, im thinking of going to spain but im worried about the heat! some say our hot days here in the uk are worse because of the humidity we have and the heat in spain is diffrent! must say today has done my legs no good. tony.

I went to Barcelona a few years back it was very hot but the hotel had air conditoning so i could escape the heat if I needed to. It is a dry heat and is better than here but was still a little hot for me. I did have a wonderful time; as Barcelona is a fantastic place. I went to Croatia 12 years ago, it was 35% when we got threre and we had no air conditioning. I came back to a relapse; so wouldn’t recommend it.

Have a great time

hi tony

the weather in spain is generally much nicer than here but they do have really hot, muggy days.

if you’re going there on holiday you’ll be ok if you have frequent dips in the pool and some nice cocktails from the beach bar

enjoy!

Hi, I live in Spain. It’s very hot, with the driest winter in 70 years. You will definitely need to be near a nice cool pool with some air con. I also notice that as I live inland the heat is different, I am much better near the coast. Hope you have a great time.

I live in Scotland and have been to Lanzarote 9/10 times (There is a breeze, but its a ‘warm’ breeze and I ‘always get a tan’)

I was in Salou there at the end of June but I’m one of the lucky one’s that heat and sunshine is really good for my MS the hotter the weather the better I feel and the less my MS affects me.

Hi

I’ve been to Cambrils, (next door to Salou) temp around 30 degrees but as others have said, with air con at night and occasionally as a retreat during the day, plus dips in the pool and staying in the shade plus of course general lazing around, I have managed fine. I would usually be affected a bit by heat, not too drastically.

Hope you have a good time if you decide to go
