 What is the Jet Lag, how to manage it and some advice

Moving quickly from one continent to another is what we can do today by taking a flight, but our body does not experience this fast moving very well. The rhythms of our body are distorted and there is a feeling of general malaise, insomnia and a feeling of tiredness. The term used for this disorder is Jet Lag . Fortunately, move westward, so traveling to New York creates fewer problems than traveling to the east, in fact you will certainly have more difficulty to re-enter your return. To prepare you to face the Jet Lag I suggest you start a few days before moving your habits (dinner / bed) for a few hours to rest properly and not get tired and stressed on departure day ... in the end you are starting your vacation! During the flight, do not eat to much, drink plenty of water, enjoy a good read, and if you like know more: Good to Know Before leaving for New York

How to write the date.

It is good to know that in New York the date is written in a different way from the European one, including from British English. If we use to put the day, month and year 13 December 2017 (13/12/2017) in New York, the order must be changed, first the month and then the day and the year (12/13/2017). In case we find it written in full we would have December 13th, 2017

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
