I have always had a very difficult time with jet lag. It was a struggle for Jeff and I early in our relationship. We both love to travel and took several international trips together before getting married. He’s the type of traveler I always wanted to be; he can hop off a red eye flight, force himself to stay awake after we land and then wake up the next day energized and ready see the sights.
