Thailand ... seemingly worlds apart.
While we are, relatively for Thailand, freezing our asses off, spare a thought for the inhabitants of Birdsville, Queensland, Australia ... seemingly worlds apart where ...
... where the Australian Bureau Of Meteorology (BOM) recorded a top temperature of 47.1 degrees Celsius at 4:12pm, the afternoon temperature has not dipped below 41C since Australia Day.
Much of Queensland and New South Wales is sweltering through the tail end of a horrific heatwave.
"People are out and about doing normal activities — they're tough out here," said the manager of the Birdsville Hotel, Ben Fullagar.
Obviously a Swedish tourist chasing that Bronzed Aussie Tan ...
"People in town know what to do, people know how to keep cool and not to move around too much," he said.
"Being a small town, everyone keeps an eye on each other."
Just where is Birdsville?
The heat map is here ... amazing the temperatures being recorded ...
The small town is surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of dirt.
During summer, the nearby Simpson Desert Park is closed to tourists, as if a car were to break down days could pass before another person comes along to help.
Is it just Birdsville ... nope
Thailand's cool snap is better by the day to this Aussie.
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment. Would you capture it, or just let it slip?
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow this opportunity ... it comes once in a lifetime.

^Looks like i picked the right time to come to Thailand from Queensland.
Cant remember the last time I was shoveling snow from my front door in Qld, Was and can't remember doing it from St Kilda in Melbourne either. Only ever seen it in mountains in the winter in Victoria.
