Apparently it was 30°c in Cyprus yesterday ....here it was -8°
However, I'm not sure it would be an ideal country to live in though.....
I think the canary islands would be more my cup of tea

Not sure actually - maybe its the all year round climate that appeals. Living on an island though can't be that much fun after a while. Turkey appeals too but technically that isn't in Europe and if Sarkozy has his way it never will be either

Forget the cold , calculated Skandie women ; try the hot ones from France , Belgium , Italy , even NL ( if desperate ) or alternatively : the immigrant ones , the Maroccans , assorted Slavic ones , the Ethiopians/Erithreans etc ;
- Great French /Italian Food ( and Arabic ) , all the TV you think you need , coffee shops ?
- Engleesh : everyone speaks a bit , or more , in a manner that you might find difficult to reject !
So , all the above : No Problem !
N.B. The THE best F1 race : Spa Francorchamps , in the Ardennes !
No Ibiza beaches , yet : crazy night life !
Welcome to Belgium , mate !

In my opinion England and Wales are the only countries that make good beer but I've pretty much managed without it since I moved to Scotland in 1997 so I dare say I can carry on drinking wine instead when I move to mainland Europe.
