I have to confess here that my stomach is not the sturdiest one. I don’t know what exactly triggers it, but mostly I’m fine, and sometimes I just get totally motion sick. Only threw up once in a airplane though and that was almost 20 years ago (damn, am I really that old?) when my brother took me on a ride with a motor glider, shortly after he had made his pilot license. Fortunately he was already smart enough to bring a plastic bag!

But my very worst kind of experience of motion sickness was a few years back, when my wife and I went diving in Thailand. They took us an hour off shore with a speedboat. While still on the boat, our instructor gave us a quick refresher course. I could already notice the sickness coming on and was eager to get into the water. During the dive, everything was fine. But after we surfaced, I got terribly sick. And I knew I had about 2-3 hours of lunch break, another dive and then an hour trip back home ahead of me. I will spare you the details, but I was sick the entire time… I really atoned for my sins that day and kissed the ground when we made it back!

Okay, enough puke stories for the day! You can share yours below, if you want to! :-)
