Do you sleep first? unpack your things? Do you eat first? Whenever I travel even if it's a long or short trip, I can't sleep. I'm always excited to see things, walk and eat. So I really don't sleep the moment I arrive my destination.

I do sleep for first may be I have a body that gets tired after long trips. I always try to get enough rest and be fit for the next day. If I do not get enough sleep I always feel tired and will not be in my best for the next day.

Depends on when I arrive, but usually I get my room first unless it's too early, or I eat if I'm hungry. If there's plenty of day left, I like to get out and see things.

Well, for me? it all depends. When I am tired from the trip, I will take a rest or a nap before I will go around and see the place. Surely, it is exciting to be in that place especially if it is your first time. You want to see the people, the place and experience the food.. hahah I love that.

When I reach a place Isort of "settledown". I unpack some of my things (hair and tooth brushes and thelike, put away my passport and extra money in a safe, unpack part of my clothes, put my pills in the bedside table). Then I go get something to eat which usually means looking for a market. I don´t eat out much when I travel and it´s expensive and not as healthy. So I usuallygo to aparthotels with kitchens even if they are limited. I have never had jetlag, so I don´t have any sleeping problems. I love to go forwalks to get acustomed to my surroundings.

When traveling, I always make sure I'm prepared. Aside from packing all the things I need and making sure all the needed documents are safely in my hand-carry bag, I also make a what-to-do list to make the most of my travel time. You asked what is the first thing I do upon arriving to my destination. It depends on the time I arrive. If arrival is at midnight, I would definitely go to sleep first.But if arriving at day time and I had meals on board, I would be just like you, out and about, excited to see things. I also make sure I eat local food and avoid eating familiar food which I can get at home. This makes traveling more interesting.

The first thing I do when I arrive at my hotel is to take off the bedspread or c omforter and put it out of the way! While hotels wash their sheets regularly they do not do so with the blankets and covers. It gives me the creeps. I would rather lower the a/c or raise the heat and sleep with clean sheets. The only time I use a blanket from a hotel is if it is double sheeted which means it is encased by clean sheets.

I always make sure that everything i need is on my bag pack. One thing i can't travel with is my camera. I love taking pictures for souvenirs and just love photography that much. Then the moment i arrived on our destination i would took pictures and even during travel time. I want to explore the place as soon as we arrived if given chances. Sometimes i want to unpack things and lie down for some rest. Have the food tasted and took shower before exploring the whole place. Have a wonderful weekend

If I have been traveling for many hours I might need a rest before I go off exploring. When I arrive and it is night time at my destination I try to get some sleep. Then the next day I do some exploring in my first destination. If it is a short journey and I arrive in the daytime before unpacking I will go off exploring. Then in the evening I will unpack some essential items. Often I need to wash baby bottles used on the flight and fill them with water. Then I need to add baby soy powder to the drink server. I travel with my toddler son and baby daughter.

I go straight to where the action is! Ex: If it is a beach resort, then I'll go straight to the beach the moment I arrive And I can't sleep for a long time when traveling, the excitement won't let me.
