Leaving on a jet plane

My first ever plane flight has been booked.
Never before have I set foot on any kind of aeroplane. Ever.
But now - well, July - I have a 3.5 hour journey to Athens.
And I'm not too sure how I feel about that.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid of heights, and I don't tend to have travel sickness or anything like that. And I have been abroad before. It's just, I've always travelled by ferry, on the sea. And I love the sea. 

I know I'll probably enjoy the flight. I've always kind-of wanted to fly.
But, I'm not going with my parents, or any of my family, so technically I'll be going on my first plane journey on my own.
And it's not the actual flight bit that I'm edgy about. It's the whole check-in and bag-check and scanners and everything like that. Which is stupid, I know, but I can't help it...

Hopefully I'll get a bit friendlier with the people in my group over the weekend, and then maybe I won't feel so on-edge.


  1. You're going to Athens? That's awesome! I mean, I've always wanted to go to different places, but I lack the time and well, money. Haha. Anyways, enjoy your flight (don't worry, it won't be that bad, my first time went kinda nice) and blog about Athens, okay? :) I'd love to read it!

  2. Hi Andrea! Yep! Well, I'm going to a little island called Tinos which is a few hours from Athens. I'm doing some volunteer work out there for about a week...
    Apart from France, which is only really a few hours away, I haven't been abroad before, so I'm really looking forward! And, yep, I will blog about the trip - don't worry!
