Like a Bird


So if you remember last time I posted on here I was about to take to the skies in a mini aircraft... well I did, and it was AWESOME.

After a bit of a dubious start to the day, it was sun shining, then went beyond a joke foggy it finally cleared in time for us to be able to fly.  The weather was cutting it fine though, I’m not sure exactly where this gigantic freak cloud of mist came from (although I suppose I do live in Wales, it’s only to be expected), but lucky enough it decided to disappear literally just before we needed to go up.  Hurrah! 

The flight centre is in a separate hanger off Cardiff airport base, which I think is pretty cool as this is where we fly from when we’re off on our holidays, we even used the same runway!   Ok, these may not seem like cool things to you, but maybe I’m just pretty sad... yup, I’m pretty sad!
Anywho, we took off at 3.00 pm in the end due to the weather and we were up in the skies for 40 minutes, during which time we flew over out house.  It’s very hard to get your bearings about how fast you are travelling and where you are from all the way up there as it’s not your everyday view but once you start recognising certain landmarks, i.e. my house and Ponty Sainsbury’s (I didn’t say they were important landmarks), it’s just so cool!



If you ever get the chance you should definitely have a go, you can check out the AEROS page with all the necessary details here.  It’s definitely up there with Scuba Diving and Swimming with Dolphins, both of which are quite hard to top...

I’ll stop boring you with my uninteresting facts now; instead I’ll show you what I wore:

I was properly layered up, comparatively close to the Michelin man, with 3 pairs of tights and 3 tops on, so if I look a bit larger than usual there is good reason for it!  However, there was a heater on board so no need for the extreme layers, ah well, I do like to keep warm.

 anti looking down look

Denim Shirt: HandM (old)
Jumper: HandM (old)
Shorts: HandM (old)
Tights: Primark (£2.50)
Boots: New Look (old)
Satchel: Camden Market (old)
Coat: Next (£60.00)
Necklace: BeeJewels *
Watch: Urban Outfitters (old)

This was my practical ‘getting in a plane’ kind of look.  I didn’t think a little dress whereby a sudden gust of wind could expose me to the pilot would be appropriate so I opted for this look.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
