Travel is definitely not a one-size fits all, and I think it is naive to assume that it is. Naivety can be overlooked and forgiven. Writing with this assumption as an underlying premise is not only erroneous, but arrogant.
There's plenty of travel information to go around, with every one of us bring our own special slant to the experience. Why can't we respect that?

Jan 8th 2010 10:26PM As one of those people who is both a Flight Attendant and an attorney, I can attest that Claire is not crazy. What is crazy is staying on a career path where you're miserable.
I knew that I would never make the same kind of money that I did practicing law, but living a happier life and feeling more fulfilled is something that you can't put a price tag on. Now that I've been at it for 22+ years, it's hard to remember that former lifestyle.
Life is what you make it, and if you don't love being an attorney, don't close off your other options.
Dec 28th 2009 9:40PM While I agree with some of your tips (especially sleeping with the drapes open on layovers), I heartily disagree with your suggestion that you sleep in the middle of the day if you're tired.
I've found that staying awake during the day is critical if I'm going to adjust to a new time schedule. If I nap, I then can't sleep at night and for another day I am off cycle. I've also found that once I go to sleep at night and wake up the following morning my body has made a huge leap toward acclimating itself to a new time zone.
The other tip I'd add is to stop thinking of the time as the time at your home. It's the time where you are that matters, and it's just messes with your mind otherwise.
