On a Rainy Day

On a Rainy Day

Not many people like rainy days. It is true that they can be a little bit depressing sometimes, but you only need to find a way to enjoy them. In fact, I can be considered a fan of rainy days. I don’t mind if it is pouring down, because I always try to do something that I love. As it has rained during the last few days, I decided that I could share what I do with anyone who hates rain so that they can enjoy it more.

There are many different activities that I love but I think that reading is the best one for rainy days. Any kind of book would be okay, but the best ones are the ones that are inspiring. Rainy days have the perfect atmosphere to feel inspired, maybe because of the greyness of the sky. Apart from that, if you are one of these people who can’t stand rain, you should definitely try to read. Not only because of the inspiration you can get, but also because your mind won’t be thinking about the weather, but about the story in the book.


Photography is also one of the things I am most passionate about. I really enjoy grabbing my camera and snapping around some nice pictures. Rainy days are great for this because, as I said before, you can get really inspired. Moreover, as there is a special atmosphere, I think that a simple photo of your window can express very deep thoughts, for example. In fact, that is what I was trying to do when I took the pictures that you can find in this post, although I don’t know if I achieved my goal.


Another thing that I love doing on a rainy day is baking. It is a very entertaining activity that you can do at home either on your own or with more people, such as your friends or family. The best part about it is that when you finish you can eat what you have prepared. For instance, you can bake some delicious Oreo cupcakes and enjoy them with a nice cup of tea in the afternoon. I am quite sure anyone would love this plan. At least, I would!


If don’t enjoy any of the activities I have mentioned, you can always listen to some of your favourite songs or watch a film or TV series. The most important thing is that you find your own way to have fun even if it is raining and you don’t like it. In fact, do you enjoy rainy days? I know very few people that love rain as much as I do, so I am very interested in knowing if you like them and what you do when on rainy days.

    Cute post 🙂
    I don’t particularly like rainy days (it rains quite frequently where I live) but I don’t hate it or anything. I guess if I’m inside it’s fine, then I dont mind! I like to go to the movies on rainy days actually, or else just snuggle up with a blanket and watch some tv series.

      Thank you! I love rain tbh haha I am currently reading “El Extranjero”, which in fact is from a French author but I cannot remember either the French name or the name of the author hahaha

            The Spanish and French title are quite similar! 🙂

    I’m a big fan of rainy days since we don’t get them often here in Vegas! They’re always really refreshing and pretty to watch and enjoy! Lovely post!
    Happy Spring!

      Maybe that’s the reason why I love them, because it does not rain too often in Barcelona haha thanks x

    I looovve rainy days!! I’m from Darwin in Australia so when it rains the rain is warm. During the year we get monsoonal troughs and huge thunderstorms so for me there’s nothing better then laying in bed listening to the rolling thunder and choir of frogs!

    Hi Zoel! i love rainy days as well, but sometimes when it’s that kind of rain that’s just unstoppable it kind of makes me feel anxious because of the strong sounds. But otherwise i love that warm feeling of rainy days 🙂
    thanks for sharing! xx
