Well this is from December, I just thought I should share the other side of travelling. This is commonly known as the side effect of being voluntarily enclosed in a small space with 350 strangers at several thousand feet in the air. Enjoy 🙂
**I’m writing this while sitting on a plane for the better half of 9 hours.
Have I mentioned before that I love to travel? Well Incase you missed the memo, I love it. New cultures, new experiences, packing(don’t ask me why, I just love it) and SHOPPING… I feel your judgement …. stop. Anyways, I’m sitting here, next to a very loud family which take up three rows next to me on my right and of course on the other side, my family, who for some reason insist on sharing saliva with me. Again, incase you were wondering, I have a brother. You know how irritating it is when they try to see how many times they can lick their hands and touch your face with it? No? Just my family with weird siblings then? I don’t think so.
So that’s happening right now.
Aside from those scintillating adventures, my primary concern is finding a new reason for traveling, and debating exactly how much money I would need to earn in order to afford my own private plane.
The reason for this pickle that I’m currently in is very simple, PERSONAL HYGIENE.
Let’s put it this way, in a plane there are at least 350-400 passengers. At least 50 of those passengers are carrying the flu, and the chance of you catching something on the plane(no not even from a new country, just the plane) is …well …a-lot more than when your ass is nice and comfy at home.
Another reason? Farts, sneezes, burps and other spreading of gases, liquids and so on from the body. This is putting aside the tendency of people to use the lavatory in a plane and not clean up after themselves. Before you ask, yes I always do clean up but I try my uttermost best to avoid airplane lavatories.
Now throughout this flight you would have inhaled a good amount of gas coming from the passengers around you, and yes even the air hosts. These are some of the things you have to choose to conveniently forget when you travel, aside from the dropping out of the sky and plummeting to your fiery death, touch wood. Why, you ask? Well if you were to focus on all of these things before you boarded the large flying petri dish you would never fly again. Don’t even get me started on boats…Bora Bora seems way more appealing by teleportation. Of course by the time that is an option, me in a bikini is not.
Now if I had my own plane, the only farts sneezes etc I would be inhaling would be that of the staff, the pilots, myself and whoever else’s is accompanying me .
Those are odds I’m slightly more comfortable with. **
Anyways this counts as a post *haha* we can see how unproductive I have been lately… digging up older little notes to post. Let’s call it a throwback shall we ?
Movie recommendations : Sabrina (not the teenage witch) – The Harrison Ford movie. I watched this like 10 years ago and to be honest I am really looking forward to watching it again. I would also recommend this Korean series called Something In The Rain – Its got a rather cute storyline, its different to the movies and series you see these days. It’s worth a watch.
Song Recommendations : AJR – Burn the house down – Its pretty upbeat, just to get you going for the rest of April 🙂
Paradise – George Ezra – it takes a few listens to get addicted but it is a song you wont be able to keep out of your head.
Quote for the week : Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticised anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. – Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt really knows whats she’s talking about, I’m definitely looking for more insight from her perspective.
I hope everyone has a lovely week coming up. Enjoy your long weekend and please comment down below to share your inner monologues from travels. It’s always funnier looking back to these situations.
A Rather Sleepy Human
