The heat sucks, but being snarky and nasty to each other is just going to make everything worse.  You need to have a positive attitude to start really feeling like it’s your new home and to stop (seemingly) complaining to your SO about it.  He can’t control the weather, and neither can you, so being jerky about it to each other does nothing productive.

@undercoverjoan:  Can you move out of the caravan and into a unit or house? I know housing is expensive and hard to get in Darwin but it might just save your relationship.

If not why not jump on one of the last minute accommodation sites and book yourself into a hotel/resort for the weekend for some air conditioned sleep and relaxation?

@undercoverjoan:  Welcome to the wet 🙁 Haha. It will take a bit of time, but you’ll both adjust eventually. As long as you both know it’s the weather that’s getting to you, not some other underlying gripe.

Definitely head for a pool… I don’t know if Litchfield National Park is still open this time of year; there are heaps of swimming holes down there to keep you cool 🙂

@undercoverjoan:  I just had another thought… When my fiance and I did a road trip down the east coast, we stayed at the Big 4 caravan parks. They were pretty cheap for just a powered site (we had a camper van), but I’d imagine staying in a cabin wouldn’t be that much more?

Maybe try a local caravan park…? Even if it’s just a couple of nights, just to keep cool and relax before you try to tackle the heat again.
