Hi All,

I went on the last seabird trip out of Southport, SEQld. It was my first
trip, and I wondered how to manage the seasickness aspect. I followed advice
and took nothing, as I don't have a history of travel sickness. I was sick,
but I still think it was good advice. You have to find out how your own body

I felt sick for a short while, then suddenly it hit me, I threw up very
neatly over the side, and immediately felt wonderful. I didn't regard the
seasickness as much of an issue. Just a bit more than blowing my nose.

The birds were great. Getting up in the middle of the night, driving for a
couple of hours,  being stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean is not my
idea of fun, but it's the only way to see the birds.
