Air travel

We're off to Crete this afternoon. (That makes it sound like a Sunday afternoon run in the car to the local DIY store!)

Now I know you're all accustomed travellers and think nothing of hopping on and off planes but, for a day or so before we fly, my mind is kept occupied listing a number of facts:
thousands of planes fly everyday;
everyone - but everyone - uses planes as naturally as I use my toothbrush;
statistically planes are very safe;
there are planes flying to ** insert place name, from all over the world everyday;
it's going to be ALL RIGHT.

Once I'm on the plane I'm not too bad. I don't listen for strange noises all the time. And I watch the stewards: if they look happy, I'm happy.

And I'm probably the only person in the world who looks forward to aeroplane food. It relieves the monotony and it's fun, unwrapping all those little packages. I get my thrills where I can.

Oh please don't remind me of the monotony of flying. Our recent holiday had a 12 hour flight which although the experience of Mauritius was worth it, it drove me nuts! Our total travel time each way was close on 20 hours!

When I got back to work on Friday I discovered that I have to travel to the U.S. next week - another 7 hours!
And of course you have to add to that the travel to the airport (oh the wonderful M25) and the hanging around for two hours before the flight
