getting jittery, an 8-hour flight in 2 weeks :/

I'll be off to Japan 2 weeks from now. Since my last flight a week ago, my nerves have been getting the better of me. I'm feeling more nervous than my last flight. 

My upcoming flight will involve a one-hour transit in Hong Kong. I have this irrational fear that I will make the leg to Hong Kong but will refuse to board the connecting flight to Japan. 

I've been unfocused at work and just very jittery all around. The anxiety is so strong that I've lost my appetite :( I've even…

flying in less than 24 hours

I'm flying off to Thailand in less than 24 hours. Actually I should be in Bangkok in 24 hours. 

I'm feeling extremely nervous and anxious right now. Half of me is afraid that I will just turn around at the airport, half of me wants to beat this fear. It's a struggle.

On top of everything else, I seem to have caught a bug. My stomach not's well, don't really have an appetite and I'm feeling light-headed and giddy. I do suffer from vertigo and am getting treatment at the moment.…

I'll be taking my first flight in 6 years next weekend to Bangkok, Thailand. I'm feeling terribly anxious and unprepared at the moment. The last time I was supposed to board a plane, I actually got all the way to the airport, checked in but did not board the flight. 

I'll be practising visualisation techniques for the next few days and I'll also make a trip to the airport, to familiarise myself with the surroundings, take note of where the check in counters are, etc.

The trip…

Impressions from first transatlantic flight

Finally I did it !!! I've just returned from my first transatlantic flight. I took 4 planes in overall with 6 takeoffs and landings. Well what I can say... that was great !!!! Its very strange for me to say such things about flying, but that was just great and I'd love to repeat that :)

Ok, now things I like on that flight:

1. British Airways. This airline is incredible. I don't know if others do the same, but on BA you can even find short film for fearful flyers in the…

"A day in the life of..."

Hi everyone! In preparation of my upcoming trip, I've been trying to find out more about the airline I'm flying with and came across their YouTube channel. I'm flying with Cathay Pacific Airlines soon, and not that I am endorsing this airline or anything like that, I just wanted to share their YouTube channel with you. 

They have 2 short videos titled, "A day in the life of..." and follows a pilot and flight attendant as they get ready for a flight. Through these videos, I learnt that…
