Choose What Fits Your Comfort Zone
Sue believes that perhaps taking shorter domestic trips is another way in which to ease back into travel. And checking out the activity level for both domestic and international trips is even more necessary now, as some levels may have changed or been added.
Facing Reentry Anxiety
Experienced travelers and pros also suggest ways in which to deal with what some mental health professionals call “reentry anxiety.”
Road Scholar traveler Debra Lynn of Mukwonago, Wisconsin, says that, although she finds travel these days “truly exhausting,” she admits that she has always found travel exhausting…..but she has learned to stay in shape between trips, has downsized her luggage, and has realized that she needs to take taxis to starting locations rather than walking.
Pam Wilder of northern Idaho tries to arrive for Road Scholar programs ahead of start dates so that she can relax and get over jet lag. In fact, she arrived for a trip in France two weeks in advance. On a trip to Belgium, she took one extra day to “read a book, go short distances to eat, and stay low key.”
