Sorting through pictures I took of my trip a few weeks ago, all from different parts of my flights. It's so easy to forget how small you are until you're in the air, looking at miles and miles at once. As I mentioned before, I'm a nervous flyer. I think about all of the possible negative scenarios about flying and am always relieved to land. It's great to visit new places and while I'd love to travel more, maybe I can just take a sedative until I land again. Am I the only one?
Anyways, the clouds looked so beautiful, even if I could only imagine myself falling through them.

  2. These are beautiful. When I was young and going back to Nica... I once thought the clouds were snow. It didn't all click until a nice lady beside me explained it. I think I ended up falling asleep on her arm (weird).

  4. I completely agree -- I am definitely a nervous flyer! Never bothered me as a kid, but nowadays I worry nonstop...

  7. Ah, also a very nervous flyer and just took my first flight in about 6 years a couple of weeks ago. I love to travel but hate to fly but this time things were different. A couple of things made it easier. 1 - I lost a dear friend suddenly and unexpectedly last spring. It has had a profound affect on my outlook. Life can be very short - don't be limited by fear. Worry won't cause or stop bad things from happening but you can certainly regret things that you haven't done. 2 - I used my head - I decided to think about being in a plane as being on a bumpy bus ride. No big deal. 3 - I took gravol so it would calm my stomach and make me a little drowsy.
    And probably, like yourself, I decided that I love to travel more than I hate to fly. Kudos to you for getting on that flight!
