I live in Queensland, Australia which the state refers to as the "Sunshine State." It sounds tropical and beautiful, doesn't it? The area I live in is subtropical and even in winter it is not so cold. The blue sky, coloful birds and palm trees, it's full of natural beauty here. If you love hot weather, this place is paradise, I reckon.
In my case, honestly I am not good at hot weather. Five years ago when I came to Australia, I thought I was able to get used to the hot climate, but I still haven't got used to it. I remember that my neighbor who came from New Zealand said that they couldn't get used to the hot climate either. It seems my natural constitution won't change so easy. My ancestors lived in a snowy area and I am not sure but I guess that this is one of the reasons I am not good in a tropical climate.
It is November now. That means the temperature is going up day by day. Summer started only two weeks ago but I have already started counting the days when autumn comes.
