This is probably one of the simplest pics that I have ever taken, however at the same time is the one that exemplifies the favorites moments of my life.

I hate to fly, I’m scared of flying, but I would be completely unhappy without traveling, — unfortunately, this last year is making me try this weird life of not traveling — so every time that I see the clouds underneath me, I’m unbelievably happy, even if I’m, at the same time, stupidly afraid.

This being said the 5 reasons why I love to fly, even while being afraid of flying are:

– It takes me on adventures, liking it or not, is the quickest way to travel, and I was

able to go to several countries since I started to fly.

– Falling asleep in a country/continent and waking in another.

– That feeling on your stomach, when we take off, or when there’s some kind of turbulence, is one of the feelings that I love the most.

– It gives us the opportunity to face some of our fears.

– We still don’t have the star trek ability to teletransport (beam me up Scotty), so flying seems to be, the next best thing.

I don’t think that I will ever like flying, but at the same time, I don’t mind flying almost every week if that means knowing more of the world.
