After what seems like months and months of only using my beloved laptop for school-oriented research, my mom gave a much more fun assignment this morning. I'm allowing myself today and half of tomorrow to do nothing before I have to start studying for exams.
This means I can devote some time to my favourite kind of research - Planning my trip to Dublin!
We're still trying to get the logistics down, such as how long we're staying and which hotel to choose, but its coming closer and closer, and I can't wait!
Today I'm researching restaurant choices and planning the itinerary. At most we're only spending 4 days in Dublin so I'm trying to squish everything the city has to offer into only a few hours. A few very jet agged hours no less. Seriously, wouldn't the world be a better place if jet-lag didn't exist? Especially flying from North America to Europe: the dreaded night flight when you arrive all dissoriented and then can't sleep properly for days.
I've heard of lots of "home remedies" for helping jet lag like drinking lots of water, doing yoga, staying up until the new time's bed-time etc etc, but I have to admit after 20-some years of flying transatlantic, NOTHING has ever helped me.
Do any of you have this problem as well on your travels? Or better yet, does anyone have any other home remedies that will work?
