We visited Paris during the record-breaking heat wave last summer. The day before we took the train from Bern to Paris, we received a reminder by email to bring enough water. We were pretty much boiling in the city when it reached an all-time high temperature of 42.6° celsius. Two days later, the temperature dropped by 20-ish degrees. Despite the heat, we had an amazing time, drank too much wine and Chartreuse and ate too much great food.
