haha i kept waiting for my body to shut down the first few days but it never did....even when it got dark. In fact, despite the time change i experienced zero jetlag. that's right....ZERO. I don't understand it at all. Even my wife who did her own thing had zero crash upon arrival. Yes, i was super excited to be going but got very little sleep on the flight over. I woke up extra early 2 days before the trip and went to bed super early... drank water on the plane and simply rested (never could get comfortable though and ended up using my folding tray to prop up my pillow)

Did you have jet lag when you got home?

Nope. (We flew back to the US out of Madrid) I would simply wake up FULLY rested around 6 - 7AM though. I normally wake up around 8:30AM.

Great report...I'm slowly working my way through it.

I, too, loved the Churchill War Rooms - I feel it is one of those little-known gems in London.

Grassshopper...

I find that I adjust very quickly going west to east, probably because I am normally a very early riser. I do not sleep much on the plane, but by the 2nd day, I'm in synch and feeling great.

Going east to west (Europe to Phildelphia or Philadelphia to California where we have family) is a nightmare for me. I just cannot stay up much past dinner time for nearly a week.

HI Tailsock, I'm back with another photo question...I hope you don't mind. I was wondering what your settings were on the night time shots in Piccadilly Circus? Thanks!

no problem. i used a quicker shutter speed to prevent the many passerbys from blurring

F stop: f/3.5
exposure: 1/15 second
ISO speed: ISO-400
focal length: 18 mm
exposure mode: manual
