Flying Solo: NaBloPoMo

Have you ever taken a trip by yourself? Do you prefer to travel with people or alone?

In the past, I have flown on a plane by myself. My parents put me on a plane when I was four, almost five, to go visit grandma Pearl in Kansas City. My mom wanted me to tell the stewardess that I was five. I had trouble with telling a little white lie. So I said I was four-five.
Since then I think the rules for minors traveling alone has become more strict.
Here is a link to the rules for American Airlines:

The last time that I traveled on a plane by myself was in 2000. I went to visit my friend, Cari, in South Dakota. So I traveled to the destination by myself but the rest of the trip was spent in good company. She even made a pink cake for my birthday. It was a lovely trip, except for the bee sting and sleeping on a rock. If you travel with good friends, it can make a huge difference. Good friends might be more understanding of your fear of heights and picky eating. Regular friends might not ever want to see your face again. Thanks Cari! You are a wonderful traveling companion. πŸ˜‰
I don’t mind traveling alone but I like having someone to tag along. I need someone to drive over bridges and to play cards with. Unfortunately, I haven’t mastered Solitaire like Grandma Pearl.

  1. I like traveling with my hubby, it’s just more fun.

  2. You really do like pink don’t you lol! I have taken trips alone. And, shhhhh….I admit I would rather travel alone than with either of my children πŸ˜‰ they eat not only the snack the flight attendant hands them on the plane, but then they eat mine too!

    1. You mean the color pink? I would rather not take the kids but I think vacations are for relaxing. It’s almost impossible to relax while keeping track of my youngest. lol πŸ™‚

      1. Yes the color. You mention it often πŸ˜‰ I guess I really don’t mind taking my kids but I surprised I don’t have nightmares from traveling alone with them when they were younger. IT WAS AwFul

      2. I didn’t even realize i mentioned it this time
        I also like the singer.

      3. Oooh. The pink cake πŸ™‚ it was delicious.
