Growing up in a beach town, I always knew I had to wear sunscreen at the beach (mind you, no one told me for years I had to wear it every day, regardless of where I went) to avoid a sunburn.
But I hate the beach (seriously, how can you enjoy yourself with all that sand getting absolutely everywhere, and don’t get me started about tanning….), so there was never any chance of me getting a sunburn there.
No, I got all my sunburns in the mountains. And not even in the summer. We Italians celebrate several holidays in late April and early May, which gives us the perfect excuse to go camping, picnicking, or mountain hiking. Or all of these things. Fun times.
