I'm from the UK and the highest temperature recorded in the entire country was 38.5*C but somewhere in Surrey could have beat that record and reach 42*C.

Portugal better than Greece, Italy... Because we have access to an Ocean, a real one, the Atlantic Ocean and our famous food and our friendliest people, a pleasant temperature (not too hot), sumptuous landscape, welcoming and typical villages, should be higher so.

I like this country and all. But saying that it's better than italy and greece is rude and disrespectful because no country is perfect and it will never be.
