Remember your first ride in an airplane?
Me? It was just few months ago together with my hubby we went to Manila to get some important document from the embassy.

It was kinda scary for me, I hold my hubby very tight while the plane was about to take. But I did not vomit though.

It was back in 2002, but boy was it intense: I was travelling from Romania to the US and we had to change 3 planes to the destination (Budapest-Paris, Paris-New York, New-York-Albany they were I think).

It was a mixture of fear and anxiety and I think the latter was the dominant emotion in the end. I remember making a really incredibly stupid joke on the plane to the US towards one of the flight attendants when they brought lunch and I asked them if the plastic fork wasn't dangerous (given that September 11 was still fresh with the americans, they didn't find it funny I later realized).

First time it was exciting for me. Was on a greece holiday in 1994. I can remember that on the take off it felt funny in the region of my stomach. But it was not bad, only interesting.

Hm. Let me think. It must have been in the stone age.... *giggles*

Seriously, first time was on a school trip from Stockholm to Gotland (island outside Swedens east coast) when I was about 11 years old. An old propeller airplane and it took about 60 minutes for a flight that today take about 25 minutes! I didn't think it was scary at all - and that's how it has continued.

Oh, are we also counting "I can't remember but I know I was there" type of flights Lifecruiser? Because if so, I flew from Cluj-Napoca (my hometown) to Bucharest when I was 3 years old or so. Can't really remember much though, I was too busy planning on World Domination during my whole trip.

@ Tudi: Wow three planes that must have been cool. I mean first trip you remember riding in an airplane and you rode 3 planes already. Wow! I bet it was a lot of fun or you are quite busy thinking how to dominate the world. Lols.

@ lifecruiser: Oh, you have seen how advanced our technologies are now in terms of traveling, a 60min flight before become of a 25min ride only. It reduced traveling time to 35 mins.

@ Wazling: That was 14 years ago that you had your first ride on a plane. For sure it was quite interesting;) I bet Greece was so beautiful and you have seen it all.
