I once measured 46 degrees C in the Indus Valley, and that was at 6pm in the evening when things were starting to cool down. Secret of survival - stay out of the sun, do as little as possible, and drink loads of water.

Got me there. 44C is my pb for suffering heat.  That was in Karachi.  I see it was only 30C there today.

This whole heatwave thing is by-passing the Hebrides.  Grrrr! I'm jealous!  Why can't you send some of your weather up here?

I went out yesterday intending to do a seven mile linear walk and getting the bus back. I got out of the car and realised what a scorcher it was.
I finished up doing five miles round Llyn Idwal. Every time I needed a break I crawled into the shade of the nearest big boulder. I felt like a beetle :2funny: (Couldn't find a smiley for a beetle)
Had an ice cream back at the Brewshack

Cool feet really helps to regulate the bodys overall temperature. It worked for me, anyway! 8)

Only issues i have with being on the coast, last week, was it was simply too hot.
Last Thursday afternoon, it reached 32C in Dyffryn, and the humidity was crippling.
Even at the shore line in Barmouth, it was still unbearable for those who hate such conditions, which includes me.

Thankfully the Atlantic has brought in much cooler unsettled weather.

Its back to a more manageable 18C today- much much nicer weather.

Most folk like it hot when they're at the coast ::)


Personally, I find it's much more unbearable inland.

A video from last week and walking in the heat, the walk ended early despite taking a few precautions.
