Hey to Everyone again. I just want to share my experience with you. One week ago i traveled alone to Nederland through Rome. Thats means 2 flights, 2 take offs 2 landings. A couple of days before my flight i was very nervous. So nervous that i didn't want to go. The flight was really early (about 6.30 a.m.) so i didn't get much sleep. Those days i read again everything from the book, and saw on the web on official Schiphol website how many arrivals and departures took place during the day. I was very calm during my check-in, my boarding and taxing in both flights. All the time i tried slow breathing, thinking about my arrival and my trip and i was telling my self the following:
On the second take off there was some strange noise. I panicked for a couple of seconds but everyone else was really calm. So i supposed that it was that type of aircraft.
The thing is.... i wan't relaxed, i didn't enjoy it, I was watching my watch all the time but... i DID it and it went better that i thought it would have been. Moreover there wasn't any turbulence at all. Actually i enjoyed the last 30 minutes cause i like landings. I was happy when i arrived.
On the way back i was with my boyfriend. He is sooooo relaxed every time....i I was nervous only before take offs. I was holding his hand and thinking of my home.
To sum up... i had great time. I am glad that i did that trip and i am proud of my that i manage to flight alone. I don't know why i made it such a big deal. I don't know how i would react if there was turbulence. I don't know how i will be if i have to flight again, but its a big step, isn't it??
