It was very hot here last week. I spent a full day in the refreshing wind streams of my trusted ventilator blowing at full speed.
We gotta stay hydrated.
Welcome to the forum! Please tell us more about yourself here.
I agree, we have to stay hydrated, all of us. It's the best way to survive this heat.
Its always hot.
I wish I was there at the moment. Norway sounds great. What part of Norway are you from, @Torgeirtrap?
Haha, for me it's the other way around! I rarely travel much, so the warmer summer days are very welcome. I'm from the Trøndelag region myself, right in the middle of the country. We never get the best weather here, but this summer have been particularly disappointing.
If I could I'd book the first ticket to Belgium!
I'm afraid we have annoyingly fickle weather to offer at best. One day it rains like mad and temperatures fall below zero, the next we're sweating like pigs; one day we're told to mind the use of water, the next we're plagued with biblical floods. Our weather is very much like our politics: unpredictable. ;-)
As far as Norway is concerned, I'd love to pay the country a visit someday. I love eating fish... Can't stress this enough: I love eating fish.
At least Belgium looks beautiful – fickle weather or not. ;-)
If there's one thing we can offer, it's fish – and a lot of it!
I rather like Norse salmon. The thing that keeps my wife and me from visiting Norway is a) the fact that she doesn't like to fly, and b) she doesn't like fish. ;-) We could travel by train, though it'd be costly and time-consuming. And I'm sure Norway has other good things to offer besides fish. We might just get there, someday. ;-)
We have that i common then – I prefer salmon too when eating fish. If you have a car you could always drive; German tourists visiting the country usually travel that way – although almost always by campervans, which takes away the issue of finding somewhere to sleep for the night. The petrol prices are at an all-time high here right now, so I'd definitely recommend using an electrical car if possible!
Likewise I'd like to give Belgian cuisine a try; obviously including Belgian waffles, chocolate and beer!
*Sorry to @chrisisall for going way off topic!*
I feel sorry for everyone who is forced by their superiors to always follow the company's dress code, which sometimes means wearing a suit no matter what the temperature. That, in my opinion, is barbaric. Before I taught, I worked in a chemical company. One day mid-Summer, the air conditioning broke down. Temperatures rapidly rose to freakish heights. My supervisor nevertheless insisted that we all kept our jackets on! Shirt, tie and jacket. It was murder. I ended up cooling myself off in the 0°C storage rooms...
As a hip teacher, I'm currently allowed to wear shorts. Except in the chem lab, of course. Safety first. ;-)
