Jet Lag

18 Jul

I have been home for two days and am still suffering from jet lag. The nine hour flight from Zurich to Chicago was difficult, and the seven hour time change really affected me. I hope to begin posting the events of my European trip in a few days. Where I left off before was the first day of hiking in the Dolomites, so that is where I will pick it up again. Meanwhile I think I’ll take a nap.DSC_0308

    Welcome back. I usually don’t find the trip back as difficult as going over. It took about 3 days to get over the jet lag here in Ireland. Getting onto wifi here has been very easy. On our way to the west coast today to get away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin.

      Enjoy! It’s three days since I arrived back and I am beginning to feel like a human being again. I could not get a good connection to the Internet from the time I was in the Dolomites until my last destination in Munich, and then I was with my old college friend, and didn’t want to spend time on the computer. I’ll be reliving my trip over the next few weeks as my posts catch up. It was a truly magnificent trip and birthday celebration.

    Jet lag is such a pain. Fortunately I don’t suffer too badly with it, I never sleep well on flights and rarely eat on them nowadays either, I try to stick with the routine of the place I am going to and that seems to help, even when I am eating dinner in San Fran or Vancouver and it is something like 3:30 am where I have come from! My OH however, suffers dreadfully in which ever direction he travels to. We have come to the conclusion his body just hates travelling 🙂

    Hope we see you soon – well rested xx

      It seems to take me about three days to catch up with myself. I am feeling more normal today. Now that I am home, I have the luxury of managing my time as I wish, not pushing ahead to see and do everything.

    Welcome back and have a fine nap! Jet lag is dreadful…but it has an end. Looking forward to further posts.

      Thanks. I am working on the story of the hike.

    Oooo jetlag is terrible! I see though you’ve more or less over-come it. i’m happy you were able to enjoy your trip and that the weather held out for you…welcome home a bit late!

      Thanks so much. It was a great trip. I loved the Dolomite area. The hotel in Cortina felt so comfortable at the end of the hike, I could have stayed there to relax several days if I had not already booked two nights in Venice.

        Did you enjoy Venice…it’s so crowded this time of year.

      • Rosemarie July 19, 2013 at 3:52 am #

        Venice was lovely. Very crowded…true. One day I left Venice and took the vaporetto out into the lagoon to Burano, a good 45-minute trip. It was less crowded there with charm of a different sort. Photos to follow soon. I also walked a lot in Venice and got off the beaten path in courtyards and calles that were undiscovered by the tourists. San Marco and Rialto were exceedingly crowded, but I still loved sitting in the cafes on the Piazza.

        Burano has a haunting sort of beauty…can’t wait to see your photo impressions of both!

    Hi Rosemarie, Hope you are recovering from your trip. I just looked at all the recent posts. What fabulous scenery! Sorry that you got sick while you were in Italy. That 6 hour hike in the mountains looked amazing but it would have done me in for sure. Congratulations on returning from your great adventure and thanks for sharing it with all of us! How does it feel to be home? Debbie

      Debbie, It was a fantastic trip. I have not even posted half of my photos yet. I couldn’t get a good Internet connection for most of the remainder of my trip. By the time I got to Munich I only had a few days left and I didn’t want to spend them at the computer. I had a relapse of my cold after I got home, so I am using this downtime to rest, rest, rest. I know I pushed through my cold in Europe and wore myself out, but I would do it again. I am reviewing all my photos now. Some really worked, others didn’t. My camera was new and I didn’t know all of its secrets. I still don’t. Overall, I am pleased with the results, because I can relive and enjoy the trip over and over again.
