So there are many things you have to consider when it comes to moving to a different country, not that I’ve had a huge deal of experience before, however you need to take into account certain considerations. Culture, religion, currency, time differences, weather etc. The list can go on depending on which country you’re coming from and going to.
One of the great factors of moving here was better weather than the UK, and although I knew it was going to be hot, I didn’t anticipate it was going to be this hot! It being 38 degrees celsius, oh but it’s ok because it’s ‘cooling down’ I have been told of some of the temperatures that it can reach during the height of summer… 55 degrees.
Well as practiced as the British are, talking about the weather this wasn’t just a report for the morning news, it was more for the fact that we were heading off on the walk in 38 degrees with a ‘real feel’ of 44. This walk is for the clients so we need to learn the route and things about it,
You can sweat from absolutely EVERYWHERE – even knee caps being one, I didn’t even realise knee caps did that! I understand the way skin works but it wasn’t something that I’d ever come across before.
Now I’m not much of a walker – now when I say that I mean in terms of being an outdoor instructor, some people choose to play on hills, I play on rivers, so easy as it may have been it was still a challenge, the heat just made things rather intense and it was a little bit of a shock to the system. With plenty of water in our back packs we went up this hill, a little scramble as we got to the top and bingo.
Here is that view:
I couldn’t resist the moment, to try and achieve that epic selfie.
I think it is certainly safe to say that I achieved it!
Tip of the trip: Weather reports are important, we were very close to camp and on a short walk but make sure you check and if it’s not right, do it tomorrow!
