It looks like a dull
and dreary day with the sun
lost amidst the clouds
But then, grey turns to
blue and alleviates the

underwater, the colours
have turned beautiful
It almost feels as
though the sunshine has devoured
the rain easily

Whether its Marbella or Paris, Amsterdam or Bremen, summer in Europe is characterised by sunny skies with specks of clouds, people sun-bathing at the beaches of Marbella or taking a boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam.
