I love traveling every summer. I have been to many locations, but my preferred locations were the tropical ones. I spent a lot of time in the sun and by the sea. I was at the beach nearly my entire stay during these trips. I love the summer, but Summer in these tropical locations bring much more serious heat than Summer back home. It was twenty degrees hotter than Summer back home. I struggled to adjust to it at first. I spent a lot of time indoors initially because I had A/C in my hotel room. I would attempt going outside and enjoying the summer in a new country, but I would run back to my room after awhile and blast the A/C unit. The A/C unit was the only thing that made me feel better. After spending more than two afternoons holed up in my hotel room, I decided that enough was enough. I either needed to tough it out and love my trip or I needed to return home. I decided to stay and force myself to deal with the weather. It wasn’t easy. I was drinking water all day and wearing the loosest and lightest clothing possible to help with the heat. I really still felt the heat and was covered in sweat, but at night, my saving grace was my A/C unit. It made all the difference. After coming back house and reflecting on my trip, I’ve realized that it was really worth the discomfort from the heat. I explored several things and met so many people. it was the trip of a lifetime!
