Enjoying journey by Air in our own state or country is fantastic but journey to a foreign country that too first some times left memories a lot which we revive after a long time and feel like we enjoy. Mine was the first journey to France which I had a few years ago. I took my flight from New Delhi and there was a brief stop over at Dubai. For one hour I enjoyed the ultra modern Air port. Really the Dubai Air Port is worth seeing. Such a long Air Port I have not seen prior to that. I enjoyed the company of two sisters from Korea at the Dubai Airport. They were my seat mates in the Plan from Dubai to Paris. The company was really a wonderful. We exchange views and exchange our photographs also. While I was in Paris the sisters met me at Shanzleeze the Posh Area of Paris and there we enjoyed coffee and Bear and had a ride in the amusement park. When ever I go to my picture in my PC the old memories I see and again enjoy. How about you. Please discuss and comment.

My 1st experience of being on International Air journey was 2 yrs ago, going to thailand ^_^ hehe =D I must say that it's quite an amazing journey and to be true, it was very bored in the plane, and there wasn't any nice scenery outside the plane except for clouds and sun.. lol Too bad, singapore is near to thailand, and so there are no stopovers at other countries to explore their airport to make my tickets worthwhile.. lol =D But overall, it's still an enjoyable journey when it's my 1st time ^_^

I have only ever took international journeys by plane, I have never been in a plane and just flew to another place in my country. As I live in England it is quite a small country, so flying would be a waste since as soon as you are in the air, you would need to land again. I cannot remember my first journey though as I was only a baby, I think I was on 1 year old and I was going on my first family holiday, other than that I cannot remember the details.

When I was 14years old, to Taiwan. There's this study tour program that starts every april each year for kids ages 14 and up, and I was a part of that. There were hundreds of us but only about 15 or so from my place. It was really fun although we didn't learn much lol. We were busy shopping and making friends! We were there for a month and a half and we had the opportunity to tour the whole Taiwan peninsula (as far as I can remember). It was really fun!

Believe me I never fly anywhere by plane. I traveled only by bus, train, cycle, tanga and other. I even don't know how to ride in Motorcycle.

I enjoy traveling by car, even though it's slower, because I enjoy the actual car ride, the stops along the way, and the frequent mass bathroom breaks. It's all in good fun.

I was 26 and straight out of Boot Camp. I had to fly from Atlanta, GA to Rome, Italy. Then From Rome to Maddalena, Sardinia. I remember that the drinks were free on the international flight across the ocean. And of course all the smokers in the airport in Rome. Much different than our no smoking anywhere American airports. Being alone it was a bit scary but very exciting, being in a place that didn't speak much english and trying to find my way around. It was a huge adventure though and I loved every minute of it!

My first international flight was when I was 13 years old, well, a month away from my 14th birthday... That was from Korea to U.S. when I moved... It took 16 hours... I went back to Korea about 10 years ago for my brother's wedding... I really didn't like that long of a ride... I've flown domastic flights few times but most it lasted domastically was 4 hours... I can deal with 4 hour plane ride but again, 16 hours was too long for me... I slept most of the way...

My first flight was from London to Athens when I was 14 years old. I liked taking off and seeing the view from the plane until it lifted itself into the clouds. I chatted to my mum during the journey. I got terrible ear pain when the plane began to descend before landing. Landing was exciting but I was in agony with my ears. I carried on traveling on many planes for the next ten years. Then on a flight from London to Mombasa a friend gave me a pair of ear planes to try out. These small plastic screw like things stop my ears hurting at all when I fly. I don't like to fly on really long flights. I find stopping over adds enjoyment to my journey. When I flew to New Zealand I stopped off in California and the South Pacific Islands.

Hi, nice to meet you here. I did enjoyed my first international air journey to Singapore. That time i was 8 years old. So, i cant remember too much about it. However my second international air journey was 2 months ago. I had been Cambodia, Phnom Penn two months ago. I had visited their history place, Angkor Wat. Is it a fantastic place. Its construction just made by big stone without any concrete. Besides, its stone had been carved. Very nice. Have a nice day and happy my lotting. Hope you can be there in one day. It is really a nice place!
