Do you have travel phobia?
September 14, 2008 2:32pm CST
According to CNN site "A passenger jet caught fire early Sunday, exploded and crashed into railway tracks in the central Russian city of Perm, killing all 88 people on board." This news set me thinking that it could have been me on the plane. Last month I went to a holiday abroad and I was a bit anxious when the plane was taking take off. I saw my eight year old son praying " Jesus, please no emergencies. " He made me smile. Do you have travel phobia?

No, I don't have a travel phobia. A plane bursting into flames is horrible. Whilst car crashes are quite common plane crashes are rare. I was sad to find out a train crashed in California on Friday of last week. My concern at the moment is airlines going out of business because that has happened to Zoom and XL Airlines in the last few weeks. I just hope for the best when I travel in a car, bus, train, plane or boat. I hope that we will all stay safe, good luck. Your son's prayer was quite cute and I am glad you both had a safe journey.

This is cute. I like your son's prayer. Simple but has a lot of meaning. Lol. Yep. I don't exactly have a phobia with traveling but I am afraid of heights. So airplanes sort of scare me. What I do before I leave the house is pray that nothing bad will befall me or my family while we're out.
