First I flew to Paris and changed the time ahead 6 hours. Then I started backwards.
My last day in Paris was the end of Daylight Savings Time (or whatever they call its equivalent in Europe). -1 hours
That day I took a train to the UK, which is another hour different. -1 hours
Then flew back from London to the east coast U.S. -4 hours
That night was the end of Daylight Savings Time in the U.S. -1 hours
Then flew to Salt Lake City (mountain time). -2 hours
If I keep this up I’ll lose a day.
Tomorrow I fly back to east coast. +2 hours
I have no idea whether the signs on the above hours are correct, and am not even going to try to think about as my jet lag tells me I am closer to waking up then falling asleep. Or something.
Next trip is a 2 hour drive. No time changes. I think.
