1- Well, in this life, I’m afraid of 2 things, heights & closed spaces..being in a flying tube, hanging somewhere in the sky could definitely be my worst nightmare.
2- Airports creep me out!! Yes! The security, the procedures, the thousands of people, the hygiene which they could never maintain, the lines, the waiting, the staff, the rules! Everything! Creeps!
3- Couple of days before my flight I usually get quite! What if the plane crashed, what if there was a sudden storm, will there be a lot of turbulence, will the pilot be good, have they been conducting regular check ups on the plane..Bla bla blaaaa..Will I survive!
4- Because I’m alone, I usually become jumpy & cranky, and such an observant! I feel everyone is staring at me..And people’s random gestures & movements become my trigger!! Everything looks suspicious to me! I become my own CSI show!
5- Because of how I become, I think I attract security nasty looks..It’s like they think I’m up to something, while in reality, I’m just too scared!
6- When on the plane, for some reason, I become clumsy! I’m usually a very put together person, but I guess the engine noise, the motion, and the whole flying thingy makes me lose my inner balance! I become like a deaf person!
7- When I’m traveling alone, I could never sleep
8- When the person on the seat next to me notices my wrecking nervous and starts making silly conversation! Urrrgh
9- I become so moody & mean the minute I know what time my flight is until I reach my hotel.
10- When I don’t get a window seat I feel like I’m literally suffocating.
11- Taking off & Landing…Oh Lord!!
12- turbulence!!! My everlasting enemy!
13- When I get an arrogant cabin crew, ill-mannered people, and crying kids on the plane!
14- I could never understand what the pilot has to say on the mic! It just sounds so unfocused or imprecise no matter how hard I put both my ears into it!! And every time he starts speaking I am totally convinced he’s trying to tell us the plane is falling!!
15- I extra miss my family & loved ones
So, these are my reasons..Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling, I just hate the flying part of it..I wish they could come up with time capsules so we can move around without all the hassle.
