Are u a morning person or night person? And in the travel context, how does it influence the way u go about your schedule?

On another note, a recent survey by AC Nielsen has revealed Australians as the world's biggest sleepyheads. They are also the earliest to bed in Asia Pacific.
The Japanese are the most sleep deprived.
Portuguese the biggest night-owls.
Taiwanese the last out of bed.

In my 'other' life, I loved waking up with the sun, and rarely stayed up past 10pm. Now I sleep all the time, every chance I get get..usually about 14-16 hours a day.

I am night owl. I'm very grumpy in the morning. I wont ever greet you with breakfast in bed unless I'm after something.

In the context of travel that's bad I suppose for obvious reasons such as getting around, sightseeing, etc....but on the other hand, you meet most ppl in a hostel/campsite in the evening, and it's good to be able to stay up into the small hours of the morning. THats when you get to know most people.....

I also just like being up at night because most other people are gone to bed, and the world is much quieter. And some things look much better in the dark.....

I used to be a morning person but I'm getting up later and later . With what's left of my mornings these days I'm furiously decorating my mum's house. I'm into rotting wood at the moment tearing it out and filling it with Tetrion. Oh the heat gun is great for burning away the layers of paint.Then the evenings which are becoming later and later sometimes mornings in their own right is spent researching and organising my RTW. So with only 1 1/2 weeks to go before I leave it's all go, except in the morning.

For the past several years, with frequent insomnia, I've definitely become a night person. However, when I was a student, I could never study past 5pm. I used to wake up at ungodly hours (4 or 5am) to study for exams. That was quite a few years ago though. I'm not sure whether I can wake up this early at my present advanced age even if my life depended on it!

Midnight comes around too soon for me, but so too does 6am. I operate on whatever schedule are appropriate and available

Thanks to the chatroom, I'm now one of the very late night owl in TP!
Many here can verify this claim.

Welcome to the league of TP night owls. Wait... posted at 5am!?! This night owl is even later than me! I believe this is the latest night owl of all in TP!!!

Did you allow for the time difference when you calculated 5am ?
