I always find it curious how no matter: the time of day, the mode of transportation, the duration of the journey - traveling seems to be incredibly sleep inducing.

By traveling I mean - taking transportation - actual moving and going around, would more likely be stimulating rather than sleep inducing.

Is there any support to back up this thinking?

    Not from me. I enjoy travel. I find it exciting. – Michael Hampton Mar 13 at 5:59
  • I appreciate you may be asking for sources instead of opinions, though the question would benefit if you can define 'travelling' in this context. Is it leisure travel, business travel, commute, or just moving from point A to point B etc.? – B.Liu Mar 13 at 8:49
  • @B.Liu I added a sentence saying: [b]y traveling I mean - taking transportation [....], is that helpful? – user3306356 Mar 13 at 8:55

    Not for me. Can't sleep on transport even if up for 48 hours and exhausted. – Keith Loughnane Mar 13 at 13:01
