I’m feeling better today and finding myself enjoying the unstructured time of being on my own and doing things at my own pace.
I’ve been doing an on-line course to try and overcome my fear of flying. It is written by a captain pilot and is very informative. I am hoping that knowing what is going on both in the air and on the ground and how it all works will take away a lot of my irrational fears of the plane falling to the ground and crashing!
My aim is to be relaxed up the air, knowing that the plane is built to glide through the air and that turbulence is no different than going over bumps on the road in your car. Did you know that a plane can continue gliding through the air even if all the engines fail?
We are staying at a gorgeous old grand hotel in Melbourne. Built in the 1800’s it is one of the only independent grand hotels in the world. I can’t believe we are staying there. We got a good deal on it through one of the accommodation deals websites. I’m really excited. That will help me get through the flight, knowing where I get to go at the end of it! As well as seeing D of course!
This is so what we need together. A weekend away. If it wasn’t for the ordeal that flying has become for me with the anxiety already building, it would all be just so exciting. I used to love flying. I hope this trip will help me to find that again.
The Hotel Windsor – some sneak pictures to tempt my senses! I will post some of our own photos from the weekend when we get back.
