Can't take the heat

Today it's been slightly overcast and therefor a bit chillier. I don't mind at all. Actually, I can't take this heat very well. I'm just like my Dad, neither one of us are made for heat, we prefer it between 20-25 degrees max.

It must be strange to hear, considering where I live and that we have 30 degrees plus, every single day of the year in Brunei. But you know, it's a different heat - and here, there's no getting away from it.
It's hot in the day, in the evening and in the night; and here no one really have A/C, like we do back in Brunei. It's hot for such short periods in the year it's hardly worth it here.

Back home, we don't feel that have to be outside enjoying it every day either, as you do here "in case the good weather stops tomorrow". Here in Scandinavia, the summer heat and the sunshine is so precious that you need to enjoy every minute of it.

We have all felt a bit under the past few days. Lucas, Nathan and I all have sore throats and Linnea has a bad cough. Add to that the hot, hot weather, and the fact that we have been on the go now for two weeks - no wonder we are feeling slightly worn down.

Tomorrow we are spending most of the day on the train, going up to my parents place. It has been a blast these past few weeks - we have had so much fun and seen so many of our friends - but, it's also going to be nice to finally be able to pack out a bit, and get organized, and not do much for the next few weeks. Just wind down and relax.
