Despite being really tired after working through the night, today I headed off to the forest.
The country is facing its hottest day in history with the mercury rising to 39˚C. In short, it’s hot. Very hot.
In a bid to get out of direct sunlight, I headed to the forest. I thought I’d use the top canopy to shield me from the worst of the sun’s rays, but I was wrong.
The midges were out in force and keen to suckle on pale skin.
Sitting next to a small stream, I listened to the sounds of nature all around, backed by the trickling of shallow water over rocks. As the water made its way downstream, the mini waterfall at a small wear added to the acoustics.
A perfect way to unwind.
