Oh I hear you.... as a fellow Sensitive Traveler. At least I didn't have to travel on business, which would have made it all the worse, for the reasons you already listed. :)


Same here, as another Sensitive Traveler! It all sounds too achingly familiar, even on non-business, which is why I don't travel as much as I'd like to.


Ach, this blasted fashion of the comforter, and those horribly soft beds! I sometimes end up sleeping on the floor, in hotels.


Yes, I identify with all of this. I'm really glad, looking back, that I once had a job that took me all over the world - I doubt very much if I would otherwise have seen so many countries. But I had a really hard time with it at the time, often feeling utterly physically and emotionally shattered, and I'm happy that I don't have to do it now, or only very occasionally. I have yet to meet anyone who much enjoyed business travel, including those who are not so sensitive.


I had a job in my 20s where I traveled in the US every couple of weeks (several cities in California, Denver...) and loved seeing these places. Some of that travel was tough, but I almost always had extra time off to enjoy myself on those trips, and recover, that made up for the hard parts. Plus, of course, I was younger and more resilient and it was exciting. Now, having very little control to take care of myself as I need to on these trips makes travel like I just did very hard on me. I'm still recovering, have a stiff neck and sore eyes 24 hours later. Gotta wonder if it's worth it.
