This was a very long day indeed. It helps a great deal to take a red eye flight back home if one is fortunate enough to have little time between connecting flights because it is still day time when you arrive. The most difficult part is the restless feeling in the cramped seat on the plane while traveling all night long. The body is screaming, "Oh, puh-leeeez! I want to be vertical! I want to lie down! I want to be comfortable!" Traveling to Alaska, try leaving around 6:00 A.M.. That gets you there in the afternoon.
