This was such a long time ago, but I remember is so well. Here we go!

I was only five years old. I was so exicited and happy we were going to go to Disney World in Orlando. And we were going to fly! I just remember the feeling of joy and excitement as we drove to Midway from our old house in Downers Grove, Illinois. My parents said I had a smile on my face the whole car ride. (I also liked going in the car).

We arrived at Midway and I just thought it was so cool, looking at all the tails on the various jets. We walked into the airport, and I was filled with amazement. I wanted to explore everything. We checked in, I got freaked out because the ticket agent took our bags. We made our way to the gate where I just could not sit still. The called pre-bords, where we had special permission because I was a small child.

I was never on a plane before, I just watched and listened to them rocket over my house, but just seeing all the seats filled with people was amazing to me. I sat in seat 1A.

Just the feeling of the plane rocketing down the runway at high speeds made me feel so cool, like, here i am. In a plane. Our little 737 took off, lifting over the fence into the air. I looked out the window, into the clouds. I then fell asleep. (Like My Friend...)

We then landed in Orlando and got on the train to the baggage claim. Disney World was so cool. I was happy. More planes again!

The 737 once again took to the skies, and I so amazed that we were in the sky. I would always look at it from the ground, and I could never picture myself in it again.

Now, Whenever i hear a jet, I turn my eyes skyward.

That was soooo cute!!! It reminded me of one of my trips to Disney World. On this particular trip, my little sister and I flew Southwest Airlines with my grandparents, and I was just like you thinking that it was so cool to fly, but I was just a little freaked about by how the plane looked because it looked "uglier" compared to the other airlines I rode, but I was a child, and had "0" sense, so that's understandable.

Other than that I was really excited. That was a really cool report, and it brings back memories. Thanks.


PS: You're reports are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ne vous inquietez pas. Je ne vous hais pas . . . . encore, mais faites attention !
