International Travel


I usually bring a heated blanket to countries like these

I retired from being a professor a few years ago. After retiring, I decided to spend all of my free time traveling. In just a few years, I visited dozens of countries in all unusual climate zones. The experience has been amazing. My favorite part is meeting new people as well as learning about their culture. I don’t usually find it hard to adjust to new cultures. However, I struggle to adjust to the unusual climates as well as the heating as well as cooling systems. I am originally from an section that has genuinely freezing winters, however we insulate our homes as well as install strong central heaters. My pal and I barely feel the freezing from the winter when we are indoors. I have traveled to countries who experience similar winter weather, however do not heat their homes like we do. Those have been the most hard sites to adjust to. I cannot understand how the locals live with these conditions. They must get used to not having heaters. I learned my lesson after traveling to a country like this the first time. I wasn’t prepared as well as assumed they had boilers that match the weather conditions. Since that trip, I’ve started doing research prior to my travels in order to be prepared. I usually bring a heated blanket to countries like these. The heated blankets really make a difference! I also pack heavier clothing as well as hand warmers. The hand warmers make a difference when I can’t stay indoors. It has taken some time, however I’ve learned to adjust to various climates as well as heating as well as cooling systems.
