I spent Sunday wallowing in my own self-pity with a side of heat exhaustion. It was nearly 30C while we planted the garden on Saturday and despite my best efforts (wide brimmed hat, shoulders covered, plenty of water/powerade, and frequent breaks in the shade) I still managed to make myself sick. Have I mentioned I am just not cut out of anything over 20C??
I find my lack of heat resilience puts me off of travelling to certain places. If I were to go anywhere like Australia or the Mediterranean it would certainly have to be in the winter season. I once went to Hawaii where I hung out at the beach from about 6am - 10am. Until the sun went back down I had to hide in an air conditioned space. Not going to lie... I probably won't be back there again. Lovely place but pretty expensive to just sit in the hotel room or mall for the majority of the day. I need to steer clear of the equator. My favourite place I've travelled (abroad) to is Scotland. So cold! It took me days to warm up! I loved it. It was like my ideal habitat!
Maybe a tolerance could be built up? Either way I would love some tips on staying cool! How do you guys beat the heat?
