One of the reasons why leaving U.K. was a relatively attractive proposition was the weather. On days of clear Luke skies and warm temperatures, England is a particularly attractive proposition. However, these are few and far between. A cold, windy, damp climate was much more the norm so the warmth (albeit humid) Hong Kong and a pretty much continually sunny Dubai has been a very clear attraction. Today however even in Dubai the weather has been particularly damp and grey. Hopefully not for long.
