Were you scared? How did the trip go?





I went to Sacramento, CA for a 5th grade field trip. We went to tour the state capital. I sat in the governors chair and didn't even realize it. It was a great trip up until my teacher pulled my hair for walking in front of her. I'm a fast walker and that's all there is too it.

I wasn't scared at all it was fun to me!

I think it was from CT to FL, and I was about 6 months old, so no I wasn't afraid.  My son took his first flight at 11 months and flies every other month so I doubt I'll ever have to deal with him being afraid of flying either.

I went to viva las vagas when I was 20 with my mom, stepdad and brother. That was my first airplane trip. And the plane had to go back to the port twice cause of engine troubles and then a third time cause they didn't have enough fuel. That is NOT something you want to hear when riding a plane for the first time and especially when it 8 months after the 9/11 attacks!

 La Paz, Bolivia.  My daddy was in the army and was stationed there.  I was 5.  I still remember running through the airport on a lay over in Miami and my mom had us on leashes........roflol.....cause she was traveling with 4 kids by herself (sis and I are twins) and had all the luggage and carryon to handle and was flying alone with us to meed Daddy in Bolivia.....and had never been in Miami before etc....and then I remember that we had to fly UP to get to the airport.  La Paz is in an extinct volcano.  We went to a look out point at the air port and you could see the birds flying from the TOP of the bird.  I will never forget that. That was many many many many moons ago......LOL.  I am 42 so do the math......LOL.
