Around the world in… 52 hours?
The team at ISS are seasoned travellers, working with clients and attending events around the globe. We may have a few around the world trips under our belts, however we certainly aren’t breaking any records like Andrew Fisher.
Andrew, an airline executive, recently circled the globe, flying 3 different airlines in a record-breaking 52 hours and 34 minutes. His trip begun in Shanghai, where he boarded a flight to Auckland, then Buenos Aires and Amsterdam before returning to Shanghai.
Having been in transit for a short total of 5.5 hours, Andrew admitted that travelling continuously is emotionally and physically taxing. When we are travelling long distances, we like to:
- Plan our trip in a westerly direction where possible
- Give ourselves enough downtime to shift our circadian clock once we arrive at our final destination
- Use light and melatonin to help shift our circadian clock
- Keep hydrated throughout our journey
