Ah, holidays. White sandy beaches, gorgeous crystal seas, palm trees swaying back on forth on a cooling breeze, and occasionally crippling jet lag.

No doubt, jet lag can ruin a holiday and make coming back home ten times worse but unfortunately we’re all susceptible to it. In fact, it gets worse the older you get so if you think you’ve had it bad so far, it may even get worse.

Also, did you know the severity of your jet lag doesn’t depend on the distance you’ve travelled but the direction you’ve gone in? Yeah, at least that’s what this infographic from Thomas Cook says!

Where’s the furthest you’ve travelled to, or where did you get the worst jet lag from travelling to/from?
