RELAX. Deep breath in, count to 10, exhale slowly……… R&R – Rest and Relaxation……. nice thought. I’m currently today, in about 30 minutes departing for the aerupuerto, with the little people for Easter Break. And a girlfirend who is coming to ‘help’ me…… she has no kids, she loves LV, she turns heads when she enters a building because she just does look glamourous and expensive….she does not know what is about to happen to her. Teehee. I hate flying. Worked in the Travel Industry all my career, but hate flying. Its just not normal to be trapped inside a big metal tube that defies all sense to be gliding through the air at 30,000 feet above the ground, surrounded by people in really really close proximity who are invading ‘my space’……. I just know I will never overcome this feeling, but I know I have to always get on that big bird, or else I won’t ever see any more of this wonderful world, and that would be a real tragedy.
So wish me luck, I have my biggest mary poppins bag for the journey, packed with spare t shirts for all, spare pants, drinks, sweets, a new cheapo toy for the flight (ryanair = no entertainment apart from the other passengers….) travel sickness pills, empty plastic carrier bag, calpol, bedtime bears, ipads/ipods/chargers, travel documents, tissues, wetwipes, colouring pad and pencils, oh and my purse. and my lipbalm (got this compulsive obsessive habit that I have to apply lipbalm……and I panic and fret if I don’t have it, so i’m taking 2). Think thats it…………………..adios!
