It’s incredible to think that we can fly around this world in a matter of hours. In less than eight hours from door to door I can be in Europe. When you think about it, it really is amazing. Less than a century ago this was merely a dream. A century and a half ago, this concept wasn’t even thought of by the vast majority of the world’s population.
People who did travel between the continents in the 1800s also didn’t suffer jet lag. Taking a slow boat across the ocean gave more time for passengers to slowly adjust to the differing time zones. Actual beds, even in steerage class, made sleep come easier than sitting nearly upright in a cramped airplane seat.
Just something to think about as I recover from jet lag today. Now, if you could put some more coffee on, that would be great.
