Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Last year we went to southern Spain during the winter because this season is milder there than in other places. The average temperature was 16 degrees and it was very nice to stroll down the street. At night, it cooled down and for that reason we had to wear a jacket, although we've heard that in summer it's not necessary to wear a jacket because it's too hot all the time. The Mediterranean climate is ideal if you do not like extreme temperatures.

Clever stuff underway!
