  1. I’m actually surprised at myself because even though I’ve felt nausea in places like the Andes of Ecuador, and the Dead Sea valley in Israel, I’ve never gotten motion sickness. I guess it helps that I prefer to sit in one of the first rows of the bus, so I can focus on the road in front of me. Although one time, a girl sitting next to me in the front row went to town in a paper bag, and one time I was on a helicopter tour with my sister, father, aunt, and another family (mom with two little boys) and of all the people, it was the mom of the little boys who got sick. The worst part of that is that on a helicopter, unlike a bus, you can’t exactly open a window…ugh, the smell of her last meal.

    One thing that helps is to be relaxed- this is underrated. I suffer from motion sickness and avoid roadtrips primarily because of this but I find that if I’m not anxious- relaxed and focused on the moment- it helps immensely. I also find it helpful to not travel on an empty stomach.
