I like to travel out of the country whenever I get a chance.
It started when our parents took me to Europe when I was eight years old.
All of us visited France, Spain, Italy, plus Germany; looking at the beautiful architecture of Rome plus Paris, along with the grand castles northward in Germany. Even though the two of us didn’t have smartphones with 12 megapixel cameras on them, the two of us did have Polaroids plus disposable tourist cameras, so the two of us took an abundance of photos that I still have copies of to this day. One thing I l earned while being out of the country is how weird life is for some in other countries. Aside from immense fluctuations in diet plus local customs, the things found in an average cabin aren’t necessarily the same in Europe as they are in North America. One example that comes to mind are indoor climate control systems. In our area, the two of us use air conditioners half of the year plus furnaces while in the other half of the year. But in many locales in Europe, they don’t even sell air conditioners. People might use central heating or wood burning setups, but few of the locales I visited had air conditioners in use to the same degree that they are where I live in the U.S. Instead, many of the people who have resided in these locales for centuries merely use wind through strategically-opened windows plus doors. That’s at least how our parents cooled our modern home when I was a baby plus they were low on money. As long as you don’t have drastic flu symptoms plus can’t handle the pollen plus spores coming in from outside, open windows are a viable way to keep a cabin cool.
