The answer is to adapt the space you live in. You can modify your dwelling, but you can't do much about the environment outside.
There IS a perfect place to live according to Guns 'N Roses and it's called Paradise City
As far as humidity goes, if I'm not mistaken, the only solution is indoors - otherwise, I would've had a much better time when I was living in Istanbul where humidity is almost always above 90%. Speaking of prices though, being a foreigner contemplating buying a summer home in Spain (but not wanting to get ripped off), could anybody with local experience advise if the prices are inflated on these cottages for sale
? If so, I'm looking for your advice on probably local providers e.g. ParuVendu in France where I can find better deals.
