Have you ever had jet lag? It happens when we cross many time zones. I had jet lag from my trip to Europe. It is finally starting to go away. The UK is 9 hours behind Japan, and France is 8 hours behind.

For the first few days after I arrived back in Japan, I felt sleepy in the daytime and awake at night. I tried to stay awake during the day, but sometimes I fell asleep. At night, I read a book until I felt sleepy. I don’t like having jet lag. I can’t concentrate on anything.

I usually get jet lag when I go home to Europe and when I come back to Japan. I usually stay in Europe for two weeks, so once I start to recover from my jet lag in Europe, it is time to come back to Japan, where I have jet lag again!

I am feeling better now. It took me about a week to recover. I enjoy travelling, but I don’t enjoy the few days afterwards!
