Energy drinks? Pro plus? Coffee? You've only got to make it to 8pm for someone your age I reckon.

Could be worse you could have gone when we went on honeymoon, when it was American schools spring break - choice was whinge and moan or join in

I'll let you guess what we did Biggrin

When leaving the departure airport, adjust your timepiece to the time at your destination, including any stopovers en route, always worked for me as long as you keep looking at the timepiece the brain will adjust the same way as Tramadol kids the brain about pain.
Often did 12-16 hour stints flying in the RAF (with air refuelling) and feeling none the worse for wear.

That just doesn't sound safe flying that long without break. I mean, they have all these things about "don't forget to pull over for a break/nap" when driving lots but surely it's even more dangerous piloting a plane for that long!

Suffolk, I believe it was a Vulcan from Lincolnshire that flew non stop to Australia with three refuelling stops something like 20-24 hours back in the early sixties, longest trip for me was Kenya, Nebraska, Aden and Labrador.

Whits is correct, you're soft as shit. Biggrin

As a hedonist, I've go to add that you're really crap at vacationing. The idea is to have fun. When you hate the hotel and the traveling makes you ill it might be time to adjust you plans next time.

Got Majorca, Aruba and Jamaica booked and payed for and we are booking flights to Orlando in December.
We’ve also joined “The Vacation Club” so we should be traveling more often.

I never said I hated the hotel or are you on about our Cuba holiday last September?
