Musings: 10 Things I Miss About Flying

This is a very short post but I wanted to relay a few things I his is yet another short post but here I am again with ten things I miss about flying. I am acknowledging my privilege day after day and realising whilst travel is not necessarily a necessity to my life, it makes me feel alive. The feeling of switching off for 8 plus hours or more in search of somewhere far and new is going to feel different after this. By “this” I mean the pandemic-shaped elephant in the room. Before reading this post, you may want to open my ‘Things I Miss About The Airport‘ blog post in another tab.

Here are 10 things I miss about flying…

Taking off and the adrenaline rush that comes with it. 

That strange beep noise when you reach ten thousand feet. 

Ignoring the safety demonstration because like Sunshine Anderson, I’ve heard it all before. Disclaimer: Every aircraft is different, please don’t do this.

The sense of peace when putting my phone on airplane mode. No notifications, no messages, just silence.

Taking 13490578930 pictures of the view from the plane window. 

Buying overpriced beauty products in duty-free. £19.50 Working out how many movies or shows I can watch during the length of the flight. 

Finding out the seats next to you are empty. When you fly economy, this is equivalent to to a taste of first class.

Putting my headphones in and ignoring my flight neighbour. Just because you’re sitting next to me doesn’t mean I need or want to speak to you.

Writing blog content – it’s my favourite place to tune out. 

Landing in the destination earlier than expected. More holiday for me.

  1. Haha, I miss all of the above. Except maybe the duty free, I tend to buy things I don’t need at the airport 🙂

  2. I’m with you and miss having that window seat, that sense of escape and relaxation when the plane takes off and I especially love doscovering which films I can watch on a flight!

    The beep at 10,000 ft is a new discovery for me too!

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
