From time to time we can all over do it on the sherbets. That one bottle of beer before bed turned into a vodka drinking competition with a group of Russians and before you know it you wake up with the mother of all hangovers. It is bad enough being hung over at home, but what about when travelling or on holiday – how can you cure it, or at least reduce its effects?
Head to a National Library
If you are lucky enough to be in a major city, you will be pleased to know that most will have a national library, or national archive building. These places are often air conditioned, quiet and peaceful – exactly what you need. Find a quiet corner in the periodical section, rest your head on a book and pretend you have simply fell asleep whilst taking in some knowledge. No one will ever know that in reality you were up all night boozing and singing the hits of ABBA.
Find a Beach
Whilst the last thing you will need is a hot sun in your face dehydrating you even more, the beach does have some plus points for the walking zombie. A deck chair will be a welcome base, as will a cooling umbrella above your head. To rehydrate, simply fill up on water and ice lollies which can be brought directly to you by beach vendors or sympathetic friends. If alone, simply crawl your way to ice-cold liquid refreshment.
Find a TV Bar
In some destinations, usually those which cater for British tourists, local bar tenders have come to realise that hangovers affect the vast majority of visitors, so they have installed TV’s showing episodes of TV classics, sofas, comfy chairs and shade from the blazing sun. If you find one of these where you are, you’ve hit the hangover cure jackpot. Just make sure you buy a drink or two whilst slobbing it in front of ‘Only Fools and Horses.’
Check in to a Hangover Clinic
On a cheap holiday to Las Vegas and suffering big time from free drinks in the casinos? Check into Hangover Heaven, a clinic which claims to sort out your hangover in just 45 minutes. It sounds a bit controversial, but it may be worth it if you really want to shake that headache. For around $90 you are given various ‘treatments.’ Someone give it a go and let us know what is involved and whether it works. That would be very much appreciated.
