Sleep well on your journeys

Do you sleep well at night?

Ok, what we meant is – do you have a good rest each night when you are on your travels around the world? Some people say they cannot sleep while flying. Or that they cannot fall into a nice deep sleep in an unfamiliar environment. And it was this article that set us thinking about whether one gets sufficient rest while in one’s journey.

Sure this was more about hotels etc… but some of the tips are quite useful.

Yes there is so much literature out there about the optimal hours of sleep. But obviously with the precious limited vacation time that many have, each day out there will have to be fully harnessed? Surely a few days will not matter?

We think that regardless of whether a journey is for business or leisure, having enough rest is critical. We recall the days when we joined group tours. Oftentimes in that distant past, we get to check into the hotels in the dead of the night. And a typical morning call would be like 6am in the morning. You hardly get a good 5-6 hours of sleep and many a time some will be caught napping on the coach. Imagine that, with the coach driving across the scenic mountains of Norway and you are asleep?

Do you stick to a regime of sleep every night when you travel? Or do you maximize your time exploring and partying away till late? Which is the better way?

  1. I do try waking up early to get a head start when I travel, but I manage to fit in at least 6 hours of sleep. On days when I feel to too tired, I try getting back early and going to sleep so I can feel refreshed for my plans the next day.

  2. I need my 8 hours of “beauty sleep” . I need it more when I travel after a busy day. So I try to have dinner not too late ( I really don’t like dinners at 8 pm in Europe), go to bed early ( no party- no drinking) and I am up and ready for another day. I usually sleep well anywhere except if a baby is crying close by my room… Using ear plugs is a good thing for me.
