Jet lag and me are strange companies. I used to be fearless and unaffected by the jet lag. I could sleep anywhere at anytime. In fact, even before the plane takes off, I would be out like a light. Sad to report that those days are gone.
Instead of getting a rest on the flight, now-a-day, I can not sleep. No matter how tired I get. Always something that would keep me awake: baby’s cry, engine’s hum, or cramp seat. You name it. The outcome is the same: a long and agonizing wait till the plane’s touch down.
Making the situation worse is my poor sleep patterns. Which magnifies the jet lag’s impact to my body and compounds my recovery challenge. As a consequence, I get totally wrecked from flights. Instead of hours, now it takes me days to get my footing back.
What is your worst nightmare from travel?
