Jet lag. Jet lag is the enemy of all travelers, especially those who, like us, work full-time and only have a week or two to get the most out of their vacation. We’ve been traveling for almost 15 years together and fighting jet lag for the same amount of time. I’ve always been a little better at preventing jet lag than Romeo, mostly because he really enjoys a good nap on vacation. Over the years, we have learned the hard way how to prevent jet lag so we can hit the ground running.
