After 9 years of family travel, I still haven’t figured out jet lag

It’s taken me nearly a year, but next week I’ll be writing my last post about our trip to England (still to cover: What to do in Oxford with kids). As I was looking through my pictures in preparation to write that post, I came across this beauty:

Waiting for a bus at the Oxford train station That’s Tommy lolling around at a bus stop outside the Oxford train station because he’s so tired and ill-adjusted to the time change even after ten days abroad that he can barely hold his head up.

And in fact, not much later, he fails utterly to do so.

A sleepy tour of Oxford This just in case you think I’ve got everything to do with family travel figured out.

You can see the rest of my posts about England here. And be sure to come back next week – I’ll have a sweet giveaway and some new ideas to share about planning itineraries. Oh, and they’ll be some more museums to see too. So in preparation, some homework: Tips on how to visit an art museum with kids.

For Photo Friday at Delicious Baby. Have a great weekend!

    I’m the only one in my family who suffers from jet lag, and it’s awful. The kids are up and about and I’m zonked for the first few days.

    I personally find it impossible to avoid jetlag when flying across the pond to Europe. I am always just in a daze for a day or two, but then it gets better! If I could just sleep on an airplane, maybe I could avoid the bad jetlag….
