Yay! So 2 days ago I booked my ticket to Japan. Desmond and the Tutus are going back for another tour in the last week of May and I’m going to join them afterwards for 10 whole days. I have never been to Japan before, but I have only heard good things and I’m super super excited to go, except for the fact that I hate flying and the trip is long and I have to do it alone. Yikes.
I keep trying to picture my destination and how amazing it’s going to be, how I’m going to get to see one of the best cities in the world, but then a small wave of panic over takes me. I don’t know why I don’t like flying as much as I do, I just don’t and the older I get the worse it gets. I remember when I was a kid I loved flying. I loved collecting the little soaps from the bathroom and looking out the window at the ant world below. I just wish that I could just flip a switch and be like ‘pshhh flying, whatever. I’ll just watch some movies, drink whiskey and sleep’. I’m not like that, I try to zone out but if there are any bumps or nosies I literally hold my breath. So I’m really hoping I man up by the time my flight rolls around.
Any of you scared of flying too? Anyone have any tips for my scared face?
And on a more positive note, can anyone recommend any must sees in Japan?
Had to go for new passport photos because mine expires soon. The guy at the FotoFirst was like. “no smiling, no jewellery, no hair in your face, no fun times. Just look miserable and don’t move”. Click.
