Finally the summer is here. We have been waiting for quite a while but the last couple of days have been hot. If everything goes as planned it is going to be sunny (with some cool thunder storms in the afternoon) all the way through the new year until march/april. The normal stuff such as pasta, soups etc. will be erased from my shopping list and instead the fridge will be filled with fruit like grapes, melon, pow pow, pineapple – best and easiest to eat when it is hot.
Except the change from closed shoes to flip flops, from trousers to shorts and a fridge full of fruit – there is one thing that really puts me in summer mode: The smell of Nivea Sun Block 30. This smell together with a open window and a hot summer breeze, gives me the ultimate summer feeling. I can just close my eyes and decide where I want to be. In Croatia on a sailing boat, in Fiskebäckskil on my way to the sea house or in Taormina on my way to the beach.
I remember when we first came to Joburg (in jan 2011). I was quite home sick in the beginning, missing my friends and family. But with the help of Nivea Sun Block 30 “tricking” me into vacation mode – I got a nice start of the day.
