What about showers? Is there always one available where you go
No I don't find it hot in the evening - once the sun goes down the temperature drops to reasonable levels and there is plenty of through ventilation and a roof van. The doors split into a screen door only.
I think acclimatisation is another factor - I did notice that when my brother was here the temperatures affected us differently. Personally anything up to 32°C is fine for me and hardly raised a sweat whereas my brother found anything over 25° quite trying. BTW generally speaking humidity here is very low which makes a big difference too.
Actually I remember my first day in England (end of May) a few years ago I went out with him to take his dogs for a walk dressed in T shirt (same as him) and I had to stop after 10 minutes to go home because I was just so cold. In fact I found my Australian winter clothes perfect for that English summer - as I say a matter of acclimatisation.
Showers - I tend to stay in caravan parks where there are good facilities but you pay up to $30 a night of course. I have an ensuite tent where I can have a shower with a 12v pump if I am roughing it.
