A Place in the Sun Malaga Spain – Sunny again
A Place in the Sun: Is it a book, a film, a property and travel show, a song by Stevie Wonder or an aspiration for those living in the cold climates and want to retire to somewhere warm? It’s actually all of these things and more.
We use the term ‘a place in the sun’ as a metaphor for many things, such as ‘he’s found his place in the sun’ to refer to somebody who has found their perfect job. The term was first used as a phrase used to refer to Germany’s foreign policy (Weltpolitik) and colonial empire but nowadays, we generally use it when talking about foreign properties and vacations.
Spain is the first choice ‘place in the sun’ for people in the UK and Ireland and for good reasons. Depending on your location, you are guaranteed 300 days of sunshine per year. The further south you go the more like it is you are going to get a rain-free summer.
