Weather Stories and Reviews from Our Team/Clients in Libya
Libya was my destination of choice for this summer’s adventure. I had heard about its hot and dry climate, but nothing could have prepared me for what I experienced when I arrived.
The sun was unrelenting and the heat seemed to permeate every space. The air tasted like a mix of salty sea breeze and desert dust, with just a hint of sandalwood from the nearby marketplaces. It was an interesting combination that left a lasting impression on me as soon as I stepped off the plane.
In spite of the intense heat, there were still plenty of things to do in Libya
