Just got back from Newcastle and even though it was a 70 minute flight, the last 30 mins of it was sheer terror for me. Looking back on that now I've had a cup of tea, it's kind of embarassing in a way as there were quiet tears from me and then a quick excuse to run to the bathroom to be ill. Since the Japan flight I was kiiiind of hoping it would be okay since it was a short hop, but ouch I think that one set me back.

Finally back from Japan. Coming back we flew from Narita-Tokyo to Amsterdam, then back to Cork.

Feel free to comment, agree, disagree or ignore as you see fit :)

Well i fley out to Ibiza on June 25th and sitting on the plane before take off was a nightmare, i began to cry. The take off was the worst but as i opened my eyes we were in the air and i began to feel a little less nervous.

The way back was nice and smooth which made me feel at ease. I just worry how i would feel if there was…Continue
