I’m sitting on the plane returning to San Francisco – a 10 hour trip. A flight attendant sat facing opposite me in the bulkhead during take-off, so I asked him for some travel tips. Seems there’s no real cure for jet lag. ‘If you’re on a short trip of just a few days, try to stay on your own timezone as best you can. Specifically with your eating patterns. Don’t eat at night in your home timezone.’ Hmm, easier said than done.
I’ve tried the herbal ‘No Jetlag’ tablets which you take before and during the flight, but found they just made it worse. From my experience, the best approach is not to drink alcohol during the flight, but plenty of water, and to get some exercise before and soon after arrival. This helps to reset your circadian rhythm, I’m told.
Flying East is definitely worse – ‘West is best’, said my flight attendant friend. The trip from SF to London is an overnight redeye. I find taking sleeping tablets can go someway to offset any discomfort, noise and distraction. Regardless of how you look, it’s also best to wear the sleeping mask and the ear plugs. A fellow traveler once recommended hunting ear plugs to me. They’re designed to block out shotguns, so have no trouble handling that screaming child two rows up.

Many a scientist feared a Third World War will wipe the entire human race off Mother Earth. The Covid-19 situation has shown a virus can bring more destruction to all parts of the world than a nuclear war or bomb. The entire scientist community were struggling to save the environment at all cost, and what did they get? A virus, which shook the entire human race and made it seem true similar attacks are also possible in the future. And at this juncture, only science and medicine have come forward to the rescue and not any stupid old faiths and practices.
The entire human global community has been forced to participate in a test paper they never even thought in their wildest dreams. They have never studied the subject content – Corona Virus, preventing its outbreak, treatment of the sick, social distancing and economic lockdown. The rules differ for every country as the circumstances are so confusing.
There are many persons and communities around the world who are in lockdown phase or safe homes. Yes, it is boring not to move out of homes, and in this situation, it is wise to practise restraint.
When the World Trade Center got destroyed, every country wanted to suppress terrorism. Now, every country wants to eliminate Covid-19 from all parts of the world.
Some countries are in a complete shut-down phase. Also, countries and Governments which have a strong local presence in the form of community centers have easily come out of the Corona crisis. It is only where the local population does not cater to community circles and have to depend on outside vendors for their food have been hit the worst.

You should not forget the fact that more than 50 doctors in Italy have succumbed due to Covid- 19.

The entire medical fraternity is facing a shortage of medical equipment – right from medical masks to hospital beds. Very soon, a shortage of skilled medical professionals may arise if the same situation continues. It is up to you, the general public to stop the outspread of this virus.

Traveling back to the US, I recommend the online check-in since the queues at London Heathrow are normally dreadful. You can also then chose a seat as near to the main exit door as possible. This is helpful since it gets you to the front of the lines at immigration, which can save about half an hour on occasion.
If you have any winning travel tips, let me know. I’m off to Asia in November and have several other trips to London lined up before the year is out, so I’m open to any tips you can share.
