View from the hotel room in St Julians, Malta.
Now I’m the first to admit I don’t like flying, but the flight coming over from England was superb. Clear weather all the way, nice and quick too, about 2 hours 45 minutes. The take off and landing are the parts that usually scare me witless, but not today. The Airbus 320 was so good in the take off, you hardly noticed it was going along.
Lots of great banter too, and one of the touring party was sitting next to me, so we had a good chat. That distracted the mind from the flight, and I also used the in flight map to focus on if I was starting to feel anxious. There was scarcely a bump of turbulence, the landing was text book and that completed flight number 21.
In the hotel now, relaxing, and probably a chance to have some dinner too with the lads. The view out of the window is wonderful, with the lovely aroma of the sea air filling the nostrils. This is going to be a good week.
See you soon.
