Not having an empty stomach sounds strange when you tell that to other people. Several times they just didn't believe me... There is only one thing left to decide in that case, will you arrive with a full stomach at the ferry terminal or do you have a meal on board the ferry Eek!

I'm still not over the first shocking experience of Spaghetti-Cheese and Chips!! Mr. Green

Found another tip: The most effective remedy seems to be Bonine (or meclizine). No drowsiness, no interaction with alcohol, or other side effects in most people.

Of course the part where it says "no interaction with alcohol" should appeal to us Wink

Some people say that eating crisps is a good thing to eat... Anyway it is easy to carry Laughing Out Loud

Homeopathy works with some people, not with others. It's a matter of faith ?

I have experienced, that with any kind of movement sickness, like car or plane sickness, the best thing to do is take control of the vehicle.
With driving, who is going to be carsick.... the passengers. In a plane ..... yes, again the passengers.
In the past I have done some competitive sailing.... yes the passengers again.
So go to the captain and ask if you can steer the boat. Laughing Out Loud
