Blog post..?

It’s cold here in Birmingham. – just in case you are sitting in sunny Australia and thinking you are not looking forward to summer.

Well here in England, I would not be looking forward to winter. Thankfully I’m only here for another week.

Yesterday at this time it was a warm 2 degrees – and the wind is cold! While it is cold – at least it’s not raining. To stay warm while cycling yesterday I was wearing seven layers of clothing – and two of the shirts were heatech clothing (Japanese brand of thermal, I should of pack the ‘extra warm’ shirt), a puffy vest (the down was obtained responsibly), and a jacket. I understand now why Europeans have very warm jackets and wear tshirts underneath. Clearly I’m not used to living in this climate!

    36 is forecast for Adelaide tomorrow, Helen. Dont think I’d survive an English winter either even with all those layers
