My secret to avoiding conking out in the middle of the afternoon with ‘jet lag’ is keeping busy. We did brilliantly adjusting to the time difference between India and Canada until our first truly relaxing afternoon.
While I should have tackled sorting through 60 odd boxes of books, papers and various other items stored at my parents, the lure of a comfortable bed when we planned to camp for the next five days was just too enticing…
About to sink into blissful oblivion, we were startled by the most god awful screeching noise. Something howled and whined its way into the upstairs bedroom at a defeaning volume!
So much for nap time. Up and out I went to discover it was a wood chipper. Yup… a wood chipper.
Gotta admit, a wood chipper as ‘jet lag’ cure was a first for me. What keeps you awake when you are dying to snoooooozzzee??
- Home sweet home – aka how we initially stayed awake in Winnipeg
- TURF – Opening Act for Fest Fun – aka how we stayed awake in Toronto
I’d have preferred a nice lumberjack myself, but these guys sure a strapping enough lads 😉
Clearly I’m so devoted to my partner I didn’t even think along these lines! 🙂 Guess it was the grouchy ‘You killed my sleep!’ thoughts paramount in my head at the time….
Yup, that would have been first and foremost on my mind, too 😉
