We haven’t very cold winters here in Australia. Growing up in the Netherlands we had sometimes night temperatures from -15 and day temperatures of -2 C.
Mind you, I didn’t drive a car and biked everything in rain, wind, snow and ice. Left the Netherlands when I was 38yrs old. And then lived for 8yrs in Northern Ireland. Although the winters weren’t as cold as in the Netherlands, it was the lack of summer / sun what hit me there./ The continuous cloudy grey rainy days and lack of sun made me really feel down. The summers there are most of the time about the same temperatures of our winter…
Moving to Oz was really good for me, I love the summer !
