Everyone has their own version of a “solution” to jetlag. Sometimes it is simply that genetics works out in your favor and you’re able to keep going after a short night’s sleep. For me, I believe that it is partly that, partly a strong motivation to stay alert since jetlag inherently means that I’ve traveled somewhere and I probably want to see things there and – most importantly – my personal favorite anti-jetlag method.
It is quite simple, really – a shower and a beer, preferably at the same time. Yup, I hit the lounge on arrival (quite quiet in the Korean Air lounge this morning at 4:45am local time) grab a beer and then hop in the shower. Both the shower and the beer are refreshing, but when combined I feel as though I am truly ready to take on the world. It doesn’t really matter that the beer available this morning is hite, a local Korean brew that doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor to it. I still quite enjoyed it. And the showers at the Prestige Lounge in Seoul Incheon were quite passable. Not a huge room but enough space to put my bags down, clean up and get back out to discover what I can of the city.
Bit of rain out there right now which is mostly a problem in that I packed my raincoat in my checked bag which I won’t see until Manila and I have no umbrella. Still, I’m looking forward to today’s adventures!
