3 tips on how to NOT have a jetlag!

If you have ever been on a flight to another continent (or maybe even within your continent, depending on where you’re from), you’ve probaby dealt with it: a jetlag. You enter a completely different timezone and have trouble adapting to the different eating and sleeping schedule resulting in you feeling exhausted for a couple of days. Sounds familiar?

Not for me though. I’ve been to Malaysia and Japan, both take more than 12 hours to travel to for me, and I did not have a jetlag. Not after arriving or after returning home. How is that possible? I’ll explain!

These are my simple tips to not having a jetlag.

Malaysia day 6: national museum & going back home

This is already my final day in Malaysia. Time has gome by so fast. I’m sad to leave this country, but I’m mostly happy I got to experience all of this.

To make the most of the final few hours I had left, I decided to go to the national museum, right next to my hotel. I only had time to see one of the exhibitions they had. It was about the history of Malaysia.

At half past two I got on the train to the airport in order to get back home again.

Malaysia day 5: bird park&China town Kuala Lumpur

This was my last full day in Malaysia unfortunately. I made the most of it though!

First I went to the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. It’s basically a fake jungle complete with waterfalls and there are lots of different kinds of birds that just walk and fly around freely. Half way throught the park I decided to have a break from the heat. I bought a fresh coconut and sat down at one of the tables in the shadow.

After the bird park I went to Chinatown. I had some lunch in a restaurant called ‘Old China’. Afterwards I went to see all of the different markets in this area. You can basically buy anything you want here, lot’s of fake designer stuff as well.
