26°C is great. It was 31°C in my room at 1am (I don't want bugs, so I don't have my window wide open usually, plus heat from the computer). I must buy A/C.

Sure, why not. It consumes almost nothing idling. Maybe 5 L through the night. Maybe € 6 is worth it for a good sleep

Reminds me of this guy who went on a road trip in the United States during winter. He parked on a snow-covered parking lot in Idaho and slept in his car, just left the engine running all night to provide heating.

The engine doesn't heat up from idling no. I once had a survey where I had to sit in a car with the blower on for about 4 hours, and after all the time idling (stupid Citroën where the blower doesn't work without the engine running) the temperature wasn't even at 60 C.

Koestlin is neighbour of the company where i work, so each day we have biscuits' odour spreading around
dip these into Alpsko milk, that is my favourite meal

btw 32°C right now here, and it is 21h20 i have made a serious mistake expecting that it is not that warm and opened all doors and windows and turned off air conditioner. previous days i did it around 21h. now i should do it at 23 if i would like to catch some air.

Geeze that's cold. In southern michigan there probably hasn't been a day below 75 this month, we just had a nice heatwave this weekend with temps in the 90's. But the rest week should pretty normal with highs in the low-mid 80's, right now it's a beautiful, sunny 81 in Detroit.

25°C atm here, in one of the coldest Slovak regions. Over 2000 m it is about 11°C so like the day temperature in the NL.

It's 00:15 here and the temperature outside is 26 C. It's too hot to sleep even with the window opened...

It's about the same here but I don't really mind. I just came in so I enjoyed this warm night outside (well just on my way home ).

We had such a weather here in Hungary 2-3 days ago. Now it is hot (23 C early morning...) but less humid.

23°C in Warsaw, but it rained cats and dogs in the morning.

It looks like I'll be going to hike Rodna mountains (in Romania), starting in 8 days. Great Wilderness, here I come! I hope that there will be no rain whatsoever

Oh god, I miss hiking... I had to stop because of a knee injury, but now I can go again, the knee seems healed.
Possibly in two weeks I'll go there:

It was 28°C at 8:00 today. It's gonna be one of the warmest days this week so I am going to the lakeside again in a while.

Yesterday I went for a ride along the river Váh -

There were many people later then, girls rollerblading wearing just bras, I felt like in Miami.

I miss hiking so much too. Nobody wants to go to the Tatras . Last weekend I went to Jánošíkové Diery near Terchová, I bet you know it. Hopefuly, this weekend I am gonna climbe Veľký Kriváň. -

I'm going to Cortina d'Ampezzo on Saturday to taste Italian Dolomites


And hopefully also to climb some ferratas like this one:

And also two more Italian autostradas will be clinched by me, A27 and A28.
