I've mentioned before that I am a nervous flyer. Which doesn't bode well with my love of travel. You could say that I don't really love to travel, I just love to arrive. :)
I was comforted before my flight with some chips and guacamole at Frontera in O'Hare International Airport. I like to eat a little something because you never know what you are going to get on a plane and when. This was step one of my distractions.
I was traveling on Virgin Atlantic Airlines, which is one of my favorite Airlines out there. This was their coach seat goody bag. I was thrilled with the actual headphones instead of those earbuds that hurt my tiny ears.
Looking out the window is always a good distraction as well. I got this great shot of London, where we had a short layover. Can you see the London Eye?
This was my breakfast on the plane. Quite satisfying! And I love the little good morning sticker and all the fun writing on the box and coffee cup. Those little things matter to me.
As much as eating is a good distraction, you can't do that the entire 9 hour flight. So I watched a lot of movies and played Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. It was quite fun and helped me pass the time rather quickly. I also wanted to show you all the plugs they offered.
Before you knew it, we had arrived in Barcelona, ready to see it all. Even though flying makes me a little nervous, it is so worth it in the end to discover so many amazing places around the world that I wouldn't get to see otherwise. I really like Virgin Atlantic airlines. I would travel with them anytime. What is your favorite airline? Or your most hated airline? Why?
