We got the e-tickets and have just printed them out on our new printer/fax. We’re really hyped about this trip!
We haven’t gone a holiday in years and this is a dual vacation/work event so we’ll take it anyway we can.
We have to fly there and it will take around 5 1/2 hours. The only thing is that I’m, ah … how can I say this, I have a phobia of flying.
I did not have this until I had an experience on a flight from a head office in Winnipeg back to Toronto one day a few years ago.
On the night of the flight, the weather in Winnipeg was raining along with thunder and lightening. Going over Lake superior the flight was very bouncy. Even the flight attendants seemed a little spooked. When approaching Toronto’s Pearson airport, the lightning intensified. The pilot informed us of which runway where going to approach and I knew which direction we were going to land. It was the only runway running North/South.
As we were descending, we went into some clouds and for a few brief moments we could see a few hundred feet in any direction. Then out of the blue, on the left side of the plane we all saw a plane descending about 100 feet away then the clouds came back and so everyone was screaming! We finally landed safely and when everyone disembarked it seemed like everybody on the flight went directly outside and had a smoke, I mean the whole plane did, even the flight attendants!
So wish us a better flight this time and I’ll give you an update when we return! I have flown since, but yeah I get nervous now. Wish me luck!
Keep on Jammin’ (and safe flying)
