Growing up in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, meant enduring 6 month long winters, metres upon metres of snow, and some of the coldest temperatures on earth.
But nothing. I mean NOTHING has prepared me for the iciness I’ve experienced in Korea.
And this week, winter gripped Seoul with a ferociousness I’d forgotten was possible. It’s like global warming took a temporary vacation, because I haven’t felt a chill like this for quite a number of years. Fierce winds from Siberia coupled with frightening below zero temps infected me with a lethargy that made leaving the house almost inconceivable.
It made me yearn for summertime and the warm ambience of this seaside cafe/restaurant/hotel in Vlore, Albania. With an enviable position overlooking the point at which the Adriatic Sea becomes the Ionian, it’s a perfect spot to fortify yourself with a strong caffe, while watching a sparkling sunset.
Do you have a favourite spot to watch the sunset? Let us in on where it is in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you.
