Flying tomorrow morning from Belfast International to Newcastle on way to Alnmouth for Christmas Walking Holiday.

My thinking tries to play games with me for a few days before a flight but good to recognise,  it for what it is - turned the news off this evening when they were interviewing people re Lockerbie.  Whilst it did not disturb like it would have before though it best not to watch before a flight!

Thank you folks for your kind comments and words of encouragement as always. Despite the weather I had two lovely hassle free flights.  Nice to fly out of different local airports and see different landscapes. The Captain on the outgoing flight gave a detailed flight path and that always helps me and makes it more interesting to know where I am looking out at!  In the past I would have been panic stricken given the weather forecast for all areas last Friday and miracle of miracles after a two hour delay waiting on a cold wet windy platform at Alnmouth suffering from a heavy head cold I was dying to get on the plane at Newcastle and return home!  The Captain was equally informative about our journey which was bang on time and completely safe.

Well done Lena. The coast around Alnmouth is lovely -I was at University in Newcastle and escaped to the seaside when I could. Hope you have had a lovely time even if the weather has been challenging these last few days.

Hi Lena

I'm currently staying in Belfast too but I haven't taken a flight in almost half a year. I've been going through your posts and am feeling so encouraged by your flight experiences. Please continue to share them :)

Cheers, Yi Lyn
