No Winter Coat

No Winter Coat

You may have noticed my husband has a stubborn streak… well it came out when we arrived in Korea. It was about 5 degrees Celsius when we landed and it got colder and colder. However, he refused to wear anything other than jeans and a tshirt until we arrived at his parents’ house at night! So he travelled from Busan to Jinju to his home town in short sleeves! I’m sure it was below 0 by the time we arrived but he wanted to prove that he could do it.

So Cold

So cold

Sydney has been having a pretty warm winter. I think the average has been around 19 Celsius and it regularly gets into the 20’s. I haven’t bothered that much with warm clothing but last night the temperature dropped and I was out in only a light jacket.

This isn’t the first time it’s been pointed out to me that winters in Korea are really really cold. I’ve only been in Korea during spring and summer but when we move there it will be winter. I’m in for a nasty shock I think. My body will not be used to that at all, which why I think 13 degrees is cold! Meanwhile British people in Sydney are walking around in t-shirts saying, “What lovely summer weather this is!” but Sydney-siders are rugged up in winter coats and scarves.

Stay tuned for my commentary on Korean winters next year! If I haven’t died…

Also, I’ve just arrived in my hometown and I’m staying here for a few days. My husband is still in Sydney for work though. It is colder in my hometown than in Sydney. Don’t be fooled into thinking that Australia is always warm and sunny, there is a huge variation of temperature and weather.

Also, I still have that poo song stuck in my head. Arghhhh!
