Any fool can come to the tropics and enjoy beautiful weather on a gorgeous sunny beach. But it takes a super cool fool to come back from the equator paler than when when he left and with a miserable cold. Enjoying sh*tty weather in the tropics is sort of a hobby of mine; it guarantees that my holidays make good stories afterwards, even if I don't enjoy them at the time.
