It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

obviously never flown long haul economy class"

Sleeping Whilst Away From Home?

I don't sleep terribly well when I'm actually at home, and that escalates when I'm travelling.  Even if it's in roughly the same time zone, I don't sleep well the first night in a new bed, though that improves a fair bit on the second night.  Of course, jet lag adds a whole new dimension of "yuck" to it, though I do take sleeping tablets the first few nights in a new time zone to help "get into the groove".

We're just back from four nights away - four nights in three different beds.  That means three nights of addled sleep.  It was fabulous to be back in our own bed last night and I slept like a stone, waking to sunshine and blue skies today - yippee!

Does anyone else have sleeping problems?  I didn't ever have an issue when I was younger, it only really kicked in when I hit my thirties.  Any tips or tricks for getting through it?


  1. I find Bach Remedies Rescue Cream rubbed on the back of the neck and the feet works at least 50% of the time.


    1. Thanks babes! Am definitely going to get some of that next time I see it. I'll try anything! Would never have thought of putting it on the feet though ... :-)


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment!
