199. I love traveling, too, though I haven't done it for quite awhile.
I never used to mind flying, flew back from Europe by myself when I was much younger and didn't mind a bit, but now I really dread it. My fears started when I was on a plane that had to make an emergency landing on a flight from NC to NY, but the transatlantic flight experience scared me witless. I know what caused it, that I was overtired and exhausted, worked overtime and stayed up most of the night before that trip, but that terrified feeling is something you can't reason yourself out of... For me, I think it's also claustrophobia. :scared:

I prefer trains, too, but they don't go over oceans. And I know what you mean about drivers. I once rode down the Caucasus Mountains (no guard rails over there) with a Russian driver who talked with his hands... :scared:

I do know people who say they will never fly, but that means that there are so many things that they weill never see... Like another country, continent, culture. The last time I flew was in 2000, west coast to the east coast. I didn't enjoy the flying part, but know that it's necessary if you're going to get places... :-)

I hope that you have a lovely trip, good weather and clear skies. The destination will be well worth the trip. :pals:

Someday, I really do hope to see Finland again. And Russia, and Ireland... Probably not Australia, LOL. Just wish that FinAir went to all of those places... :D
