In just over a week, I will be embarking on what is probably the biggest adventure in my life to date. Visiting New York City! As soon as the opportunity arose at my school in the form of a Media Studies trip, I knew I had to go. I couldn’t let a once in a lifetime opportunity like this pass me by. New York City is a place I have always wanted to visit. Everything about it appeals to me; the fast paced atmosphere, the amazing architecture, the Broadway…… this trip is like a dream come true! I’m extremely excited, but also extremely nervous. Why? Because I am not a seasoned traveler, far from it in fact. I have never been on an aeroplane, I haven’t even set foot in an airport! Typical me picking a seven hour flight for my first time! But am I going to let my fear stop me from pursuing my dream? No! 🙂
So, with that in mind, I begun my research into world of the unknown. My family and I poured over the details of luggage requirements, packing, and rules of flying. I also quizzed friends, family and neighbours on their flying experiences; some good, some well…….not so good.
This has given me a vague idea of what flying might be like. However, I still feel reasonably uninformed….
Therefore, I now turn to you, knowledgeable bloggers of cyberspace. Have you got any tips for me? Any important things I should keep in mind that I might not know or won’t have come across on airline websites? Have you had any funny or unique flying experiences you would like to share? Let me know! Any help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
