Contiki Eastern Road
Days 2-3

Oh Prague, let me tell you about Prague! What a phenomenal city- lets just start with that. As you leave Germany, you spend a few hours on route to Dresden where there is a lunch stop along with a quick moment to do some site seeing, or if you’re really keen, eat at a “Canadian” restaurant. Another few hours on the bus pass by and you arrive in Prague. The first night is started off with a walking tour around the city to get your bearings, which then is followed by a nice dinner…

JET LAG

Well considering it is my blogs namesake, I suppose it is time I shared the best ways I think you can avoid a heavy case of Jet Lag. I would consider myself a fairly seasoned traveler. I probably end up on at least 10 planes a year if not more, so I’ve become very well adept to avoiding the sometimes-unavoidable Jet Lag.

Travelling is important at any age. You should travel young, old and everything in-between. There is a certain period in your life though where it can really have a greater effect on your life, and that is when you’re young. And no, I’m not referring to those young at heart. But those that are sort of between that 18-25 young. Those years can come with some of the dumbest decisions and questionable moments. Those are also the years that can really develop your future, so help develop them with some travel, and here are my top ten…
