MY FIRST TIME ON AN AIRPLANE
I was very excited to fly on an airplane. I asked people who had traveled on an airplane before lots of questions about traveling. I had never traveled on an airplane before, so I was a little nervous. Everyone I knew who had flown on an airplane told me that they liked it, I would like it too, it wasn’t scary, so I would be fine. That was a little comforting to hear. I was all packed and ready. I traveled from Negril to Montego Bay, where I would catch my morning flight to Charlotte, North Carolina. I got to the airport in Montego Bay, I went through customs, I waited around for a few minutes, and then we boarded. I got the window seat that I always wanted, so I could see Jamaica from thousands of feet up in the sky. I was on the plane for about fifteen minutes and then I saw Cuba. It was amazing to see Jamaica and Cuba for the first time from the air. We flew along the coast of Cuba for a while, and it was not bad at all. I got up when it was safe, used the bathroom, and then returned to my seat. About an hour and a half of being in the sky, I could not see land any more, the plane was going through some thick clouds, then suddenly the plane started shaking, I was very nervous, and I could tell lots of the others were nervous too. Then the pilot got on the intercom and said, “we are just experiencing some turbulence, no need to worry.” We continued the journey to our destination. It was a smooth flight after.
