HOW TO GET THE BEST NIGHT SLEEP WHEN TRAVELING

//HOW TO GET THE BEST NIGHT SLEEP WHEN TRAVELING

Getting your best night sleep when traveling is possible every time.  We travel a lot and one thing we used to always complain about was how uncomfortable the beds were.   We like a soft mattress.  We have one of those memory foam air adjustable beds at home so we are very picky.  And if you travel outside the U.S. a lot, you'll find many of the beds are hard as a rock.  So whether you like a hard, soft or somewhere in between mattress, do what we do, and carry an air mattress in your suitcase.  A good night sleep is so important when you are on the go a lot.  We've gone through a couple of air mattresses in our lifetime and the one we found that works the best is the Klymit Static V Luxe Sleeping Pad.

It comes in a small carry bag and measures when packed only 8″ x 4.5″.  Depending on how hard you want your mattress, it takes between 20 and 30 breaths to blow it up.   I can't tell you what a life saver this mattress is.  We no longer have to be the mattress nazi when making hotel reservations by asking them 20 questions about the kind of mattresses they have.
