After a long return journey Victoria-Vancouver (18 minutes) - 3 hours in Vancouver airport, lovely and good sushi, Vancouver-Frankfurt (10.5 hours) - 2 hours in Frankfurt airport, very austere, Frankfurt-Geneva (1 hour), we all arrived home remarkably chipper and happy to retrieve our menagerie of animals.
J is now a very seasoned traveller and bears the trip like a trouper. Mind you it helps to dangle the carrot that good behaviour earns him a day at his beloved Aquaparc.
5 days later, however, the 9 hour jet lag is killing C2 and me. We continue to wake in the middle of the night starving. Good thing Larry King is broadcast at 3:00 am Geneva time. We're both asleep on the sofa by 7:00 pm and in bed by 9:00. Someone told me yesterday that it takes as many days for the body to fully recover its' rhythms as hours of jet lag. Oh goody only 4 days to go. Now where is Tim Horton's when I need a double double and a maple dip donut in the middle of the night?
