Flying...........

Do you like to fly on an aeroplane?

I am not afraid of flying, but my body does not do well when flying.

I have motion sickness from the minute we set off on the runway to the minute we land and the plane stops.  Add in that it's always a night flight and I cannot sleep, so I am exhausted by the time we land; it makes for a very unpleasant seven hours or more.  If you need confirmation just ask my hubby and dad who have both flown with me and can attest to how much a pain in the butt I am๐Ÿ˜

This is generally how I look, wish me luck!!

Must remember to buy gravol!!!  I am actually feeling a bit green around the gills just thinking it about it๐Ÿ˜•

Oh dear - I do sympathize as I'm usually reaching for the Gravol as well. Flying just isn't a lot of fun anymore - just a means to an end I'm afraid. I hope it's all worth it and you have a lovely trip.

Good luck!

My flight experience has been of the one hour flight variety.

Yes the night flights are definitely the worst crossing back over the Atlantic. I'm fine going to the USA & have no problems with tiredness or feeling out of sorts. I'm not too bad on the flight home and I can usually nod off if I'm not sitting next to a total stranger! However when I get home, crumbs I am a pain in the proverbial! I am on another planet for a couple of days.

Hope your flight isn't too bad Gill. Enjoy your holiday.

Wishing you well on your flight!

flying doesn't bother me it is the waiting for connections in airports I mind. Good luck!

Hope all is as well as it can be and it wasn't too awful for you. At least you'll have plenty of time to rest at either end. Hopefully, the weather will be good for you while you're here and I'm sure time with your family will make it all worthwhile. Have a fantastic visit! xx

Good luck. Glad you don’t live in Australia. It’s long haul to anywhere else in the world from here
Have you tried motion sickness tablets. They make you sleepy as well as stop the nausea. I know not everyone can take them. But they help my hubby

My suggestion -- dinner on the plane followed by a regular dose of Benadryl Make it your friend. That is what I did and I didn't know a thing. I don't get motion sickness but I do have anxiety attacks and looking out the window over water wasn't my idea of a good time so I just knocked myself out. It worked.

I can't sleep on a plane either. I don't get the motion sickness though which is a very good thing. Hope gravol works for you.

God bless.

Hi, I really sympathize. I can get seasick just watching boats bob up and down. I have only flown 3 times, and the thing that really finished me off was the smell of hot food. If I ever fly again, I am investing in a good inflatable head rest to try and sleep the whole flight. I just tell myself it is worth it for the holiday at the other end, but there is no way I could fly to somewhere like Australia....

I flew the red eye to Glasgow earlier in Sept. and I can never sleep either but don't suffer from motion sickness like you. I watched three movies and tried to relax. It's hard being awake that long and all of the next day but what can you do? It always seems like it's an overnight flight!
