I am constantly reading here how difficult some things are when you have jet lag. So driving I get - your reaction times are slower when you are tired and the chance of falling asleep behind the wheel is greater when you are tired. But some things folks say here that are difficult when jet lagged I can't even comprehend being an issue.
I realize I am probably the exception but when we arrive after a long overnight flight we are pretty well ready to go. We drop our bags at our hotel and head out. We will return in the afternoon and check-in, DH will generally have a nap before dinner (he has 26 years on me) and I will get us settled and figure out our evening plans. I go to bed at the normal time and awake the next day well rested. Never have I felt like I was unable to complete the tasks required to get where I am going and get the things I need.
How does it affect you?
