As previously mentioned, Son the Younger recently returned from Germany. Upon his return, he proudly announced, "I don't suffer from jet lag! I was meant to be a world traveler!"
I believe that night he fell asleep between 7 and 8pm. This is my 15-year-old son, whose summer bedtime is generally in the wee hours. He does take after his mama the night owl. I'm so proud.
The next night he managed to keep his eyelids propped open ALL THE WAY until 9pm, y'all. With three friends spending the night.
Tonight he's managed to stay up pretty late, by which I mean he's still awake, so he's just about recovered. He's now admitted his jet lag, although he says it doesn't bother him.
I have no such illusions about my upcoming trip to Taiwan; I fully realize there will be killer jet lag on both ends, although I hope the Ambien cushions the blow a bit.
If anyone has any tips on traveling a long way, going to Asia, anything of that nature, I'm alllllll ears.
