Re: Best of Australia: Outdoor Activities to Do in Australian Summer

GarryRF ·
I've done most of those activities in the Oz winter. The winter time is a much cooler version of summer with temperatures below the 100f + that they get at Xmas - nearer 60/70f and just as sunny. Much more pleasant for a traveller from the frozen north. The Bridge Climb was a hoot - laughing all the way. But climbing trees is an invasion of Spider Territory. But at least the tree snakes eat 'em. Not for me.

Re: Norway's mountains more popular—but for how long?

GarryRF ·
Since the Jet Stream altered its course in 2010 all of northern Europe has been enjoying warmer winters. We're using less fossil fuel to heat our homes and farmers are enjoying a longer growing season. Fewer people are dying from winter related problems. 6,000 a year lives saved in the UK alone. That's 36,000 since 2010. The prevailing wind in winter now comes up from the Caribbean - instead of down from the Arctic Circle. My heart goes out to the Norwegian Trekkers and their search for snow.
