I just finished watching the movie The Way for the second time.
I am 90% looking forward to this trip. The 10% that isn’t into it is the actual getting myself to Spain. See, I have never flown in an airplane before. I have never wanted to fly. I’ve always said that I would not fly until they made the whole airplane out of whatever they make that black box from. You know, the black box they always hunt for after plane crashes because that is the only thing left.
So preparing for the trip for me is not just about getting in shape to bike at least 40 miles a day, but also overcoming my fear of flying. So I am starting this process by reading a book about overcoming the fear of flying.
