It's so boring living in the tropics

I wish I were living in a temperate country where there are four seasons. Over here at the tropics the weather (climate) is always the same and boring. Every day year in year out we have the same old hot humid weather with almost constant temperature and the sun shining for most of the time. How I long for spring, summer, autumn and winter. Once a guy I know who lives in Canada commented that time really flies by fast in his country. All because of the four seasons with distinct features. First they have refreshing spring where the birds sing and flowers bloom in abundance. Then comes summer with warm sunshine and lots of outdoor activities to be enjoyed. Autumn comes next with its beautiful and amazing change of colours of nature awaiting the next season. Winter is the time of Christmas celebration when powdery snowfall abound. Then the cycle repeats. No time for boredom as far as the weather is concerned Wouldn’t you long for such awesome climate too?

I agree. Having only one kind of climate would be boring. I am blessed to have the four seasons and seeing the beautiful landscape right now as the trees change their greens for golds oranges and reds.

@just4him How I envy you. The only time I get to see tree leaves changing colour is in magazines and that's not even real.

I come from a city which has four seasons a year. But I still like to live in the warm place. I don't mind there is summer in a year only. The spring is so rainy and wet. The autumn is very dry. As to winter, it is so cold. I like the sunshine. Summer is good for me and I can have more outdoor activities.

@youless Then you should emigrate to Singapore. Every day is summer. It'll suit you fine.

@Iam_jauntyjen Oh I see. At what period of the year do you visit Korea? And how long do you stay in order to enjoy the 4 seasons?

I live in the Northeast of the USA and get those four seasons. However, my husband and I bought a vacation home in Florida, down south, to escape the cold, snowy, ice, and bitter winters. There is a gentle tropical breeze there, but I wouldn't live there year round.

@DianneN That's nice but is Florida considered a tropical country?

@succeednow I think it's pretty tropical in southern Florida where our condo is.

I live in Switzerland, we have the four season, I am in the south, it's never too cold it's not too humid. I would not like to live in the tropics.

@LadyDuck Yes, you wouldn't like to live in the tropics. You're indeed fortunate to live in a beautiful country like Switzerland. It's not only boring in the tropics it's also uncomfortably hot and humid.

I don't have to long for such climate. I live in Central Europe (Germany) and we have temperate climate with four seasons.

@succeednow Yes, I know. I couldn't live in tropical climate. I can't stand too much heat and humidity.

i am in the tropics like you. i like that i don't think about the weather when i get dressed and that daylight and darkness are almost equal. however, i admit i fantasize about the colors of spring and autumn.
