I get hot pretty easily.
When I get sunburnt, it’s even easier for me to overheat and feel sick! When this happens, I try to stay indoors and just relax in the air conditioning – usually with a tall glass of ice water, and a fan for additional airflow.
Well, that’s not always accessible, as I learned from my time at sea on a cruise ship. I went with my friends on this cruise ship to relax, but instead I spent the weekend suffering! We went on an excursion for the first day at sea, during which I got very badly sunburnt. I resigned myself to our quarters on the ship, but the air conditioning system in the room wasn’t what I would call “high quality”. It kept cycling off after running for five minutes, so the air quality never really improved. The air conditioning felt like it was doing more harm than good! In time, I felt so sick and tired from the poor air quality that I decided to just head to a different part of the ship. I lucked out and found this big buffet-style restaurant on the ship, which had much better air conditioning than our room. I wound up spending most of my trip at that restaurant, which was fortunate for me since they didn’t mind me lingering in there! The next time I go on a cruise, I’m going to make sure of two things: First, I will have plenty of sunblock for a day outside. Two, I’m going to make certain that the room we’re staying in has a reliable air conditioning system running!
