Are you the kind of person who:
- Eats eggs, bacon and chips and asks cheerily 'What's the problem then?' when everyone else is throwing up all over the floor of a cross channel ferry in a howling force 9 gale, sloshing through the sick on the floor?
- Feels vaguely unwell when your father tries to pretend that he's a formula 1 racing driver whilst your family is on their way through the back roads of the peak district for your family holiday?
- Gets violently sick when you are sitting at home looking at photos of a friend's sailing holiday?
Well - it takes all sorts - but unfortunately - we don't yet know exactly why some people get travel sick, and other's don't.
It is a strange business - because some people:
- Never get sea sick when they are young, but get it when they get older.
- Get travel sick when they are young but grow out of it as they get older.
- Get sick on the killer rides at Alton towers but not in small dinghies when the waves are higher than the mast.
- Never get any kind of travel sickness (oh lucky, lucky people!).
