On a plane transporting my unit to Iraq, maneuvers were made to prevent potential gun fire, causing me to vomit more than ever in my entire life, including flu spells, infecting nearly all soldiers in near proximity, even those not prone to motion sickness, to vomit, also. They gave me flack but I couldn't help it. I get motion sickness just walking around sometimes.

I didn't think so but I was caught off guard by how bad I felt after my first day in the cruise. Felt fine the next day though

i get car sick very easily if i'm in the back of a car, and i'll get a little queasy on most plane flights. yet boats don't bother me in the slightest, even on a choppy day.

No.
When I was a kid I would always bring a book on a long car trips. We had a van in the 80s and I would lie down in the back seat and read up against & facing the window.

My wife is crazy with this shit.

She basically has to drive when in a car. She can't watch anything with a first-person POV. She couldn't watch that new crappy Netlix movie Anon because of the first-person POV in most scenes.

Any ride is out of the question. She can't go on a swing.

Flying is a pukefest from start to finish.

Oof. I'm guessing you guys don't travel abroad too often, then.

Gotcha. Still must suck, though. At least she's willing to make it work so you guys can get out and do some fun shit. That's cool.

Actually a cold wind blowing in my face helps with my motion sickness. I'm almost as bad as Run2Death's wife.

I can't read if I'm in a car.

It also gets really bad in boats.
