“Dry heaves” is the term for that kind of nausea.

you can certainly get them from too much air travel, travel on empty stomach, or not eating much.  Kind of like vertigo. The  oxygen levels in planes are not always great either - can make one sickish.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks. Maybe it wasn't such a good decision to go to Norway in the end, but I really wanted to see the Viking/Collector land :-)

Sure, many beautiful places in Europe.

I like Scotland and Switzerland and may go to Ireland and Austria this year.

Interesting museums for sure - artifacts and even rebuilt ships, I guess.

For any trips to London, I always try to make time for the British Museum - one of my favorites.

Maybe someday a longer trip to see the Hermitage - but no plans right now until maybe after 2020.

Sadly I had to work during this trip.

And this is why I always go hungry :-)

Is that a nut hatch? And I suspect your hunger must be somewhat related to your slightly eccentric diet.

I think he's a chaffinch.
No hunger (I've even put on weight lately!), just the vertigo from flying around too mucho and sleeping too little, as Trackstar said.

I think you're right on the finch. But, to quote your accompanying comment "And this is why I always go hungry". Was that a rhetorical device?

Understood, and I apologize. Having observed eating disorders up close and personal, they are certainly not a joking matter. Drinking disorders, perhaps more so.

I'm just a 100% normal woman - obsessed with her weight and diets. And I wasn't drinking!

Seriously, eating disorders is an unfortunate name for anorexia or bulimia, imho. All sorts of problems can manifest like that - solve the problems, the person won't feel the need to starve themselves. Veganism is an ideology. If someone forced me to eat meat, I'd certainly develop some sorts of mental and consequently physiological problems.

That was just one letter and I was very tired that day!
BTW, I'm teaching a foreigner Ukrainian. He saw a lizard today and asked me about the word for it. Here's the inflection:
я щірка
ти щірок
він щірок
вона щірка
ми щірки
...

The Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light;
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
