If you happened to read any of our blog posts from when we were in Guatemala, you already know that our week there was amazing. It was so amazing, in fact, that we’re already making plans to go back in June.
However, what we didn’t mention in our posts was that the weeks had a few ups and downs. Some highs and lows. And some stops and gos…on the road, that is.
And I felt sick.
Thankfully, I didn’t throw up (although, if I needed to, I had a plan. I had an unobstructed path to the door and window and I intended to run to them, full speed ahead, if the opportunity presented itself). But there were times when I thought I might lose it. Other times, I’d sit in my front seat, staring out the window, hoping and praying the ride would soon be over or that I’d pass out from exhaustion and sleep through the rest of the ride.
Of course, this isn’t the first time I’ve had trouble on the road or in the air. I have a tough time flying with Nate, but he swears it’s a mental thing, so he does his best to—quite literally—talk me out of it. And, I’ve had problems on our other trips in Guatemala. I can deal with it. But I’d rather not.
So, I need your help. A few people have suggested Ginger candy. Do you think that would help? What do you do when you’re motion sick? What should I try?
