Cold Around The World

Hiking in the snow - Mirror Lake Trail, Oregon

I am definitely a cold weather kind of person. I’m the only person in the room that will say “I’m not looking forward to summer”. I love the snow, the mountains, and beating the cold with warm drinks and cozy clothing. And cold weather usually doesn’t stop me from enjoying cold ice cream!

Sometimes my weather preference surprises people because I am Mexican. But Mexico City isn’t as hot as you would think, it is at an altitude of 7000 feet after all.

Do you prefer hot or cold?

Human Spinal Cord and Cerebellums

These Human Spinal Cord and Cerebellums need to be preserved in cold temperatures. Sorry for the grossness.

Even though it was pretty chilly in Victoria, BC when we were there, gelato was a good idea.

Cold sandwiches are the perfect compliment to hot tea.

I am used to feeling hot in beaches (they’re usually tropical), but it was definitely cold at Cannon Beach when we went to visit.

And some ice cream!

But during the summer in Vienna, Austria, a large bowl of cold deliciousness is in order.


Surrounded by cold! I love playing in the snow.

It sure often gets cold inside airplanes, doesn’t it?

  1. Great photos for this week’s cold. I never would have thought of photographing a human brain though. 😀

  3. Love the winter… but ONLY in photos!! Funny, Mani, how you’re Mexican-born and love the cold.. while this here native Canuck is so much happier in this here heat.. (Montreal is a deep freeze these days, oh so glad NOT to be there) Ahhh! Proof positive that where we’re born is no reflection of our body’s preferred climates 😉


    1. Haha yes! Maybe “opposites attract” is true for places too 🙂

  4. Awww, love this! We are currently covered in snow in Ljubljana!


  5. I too am often the only person in the room that does not look forward to summer!


  6. My favorite picture was you in the North Carolina winter. I love when the snow covers the trees. The picture was a contrast between the white of the snow and the black of your coat.


  7. Love it. I love cold weather too, I love getting bundled up in layers and winter wear! Woolly scarves and hats are my fave! Great post and pictures! 🙂
