Once I was contacted and requested if I’d prefer to evaluate some particular new glasses from Citroen which declare to cease journey illness, I used to be very excited.
I used to be informed these glasses can cease you feeling movement sick in a matter of minutes so I jumped on the likelihood to get a pair on mortgage.
I’ve all the time suffered from movement illness. Sure, I do know, I do know – have a chuckle! Individuals all the time discover it humorous that somebody who travels for a dwelling suffers from journey illness. I haven’t let journey illness cease me from travelling however it will possibly make my life tough. Most journeys are uncomfortable at greatest and horrific at worst.
For those who’ve ever travelled with me and also you’re considering, ‘Mon doesn’t undergo from journey illness!’ it’s as a result of I don’t speak about it once I really feel sick. If I speak about it I immediately really feel worse so I often simply sit there quietly and stare straight forward! So that you’d most likely simply be considering, ‘Mon is a extremely delinquent and quiet traveller!’
I do take journey illness tablets however they don’t typically cease the queasiness altogether. They typically make me really feel very drowsy and the perfect I can hope for it falling asleep. I did discover some notably good movement illness tablets in Thailand nevertheless it’s questionable whether or not or not they have been really movement illness tablets or pleased drugs/sleeping drugs. My buddies all thought they have been pleased drugs! I feel I agree.
Anyway, I digress…
An automotive PR company obtained in contact to see if I’d like to check out these glasses which put a cease to journey illness. I rapidly agreed after which these arrived….
For sure, I laughed quite a bit after they arrived.
I really thought these might need been a critical product and one thing to assist me fight movement illness and be extra productive throughout my many lengthy journeys. I all the time have good intentions to get work performed throughout lengthy flights and practice journeys however as quickly as I look down at my laptop computer I need to throw up. I can’t even tune the radio within the automotive or modify the temperature controls with out feeling sick!
We’re in Menorca this week and I knew this might be an ideal alternative to check out the Seetroen Glasses. We’ve employed a automotive and plan to discover the island in our new wheels. I knew we’d be counting on Google Maps to seek out our method across the tiny nation lanes and we’re hoping to find hidden seashores and little cities off the standard vacationer path. This entails a lot of wanting down and, as Sam often drives, this leaves me as co-driver and head of instructions and music.
Winding nation lanes + a lot of map studying are just about my worst nightmare so how did I get on utilizing these horny glasses and the way do they work?
How do they work?
