We entered Hungary in the midst of a heat wave.
Temperatures rose above 40°C but because we didn’t understand the language, we were completely oblivious to just how hot it was. We also weren’t very clever cyclists yet, and insisted on cycling through the day, instead of in the cooler morning and evening hours.
The result was a close call with heatstroke, after several days of continuous searing sun.
