this is how i fly

22 Dec

A week or so ago i had to attend a conference on another Island close by so i got to fly there on what we call a Trislander.  If you happen to be a plane geek their real name is a Britten Norman BN2A Mk. III Trislander.

The planes are tiny little twin props that take fifteen passengers.  You’re loaded in like a car and the staff size you up before you get on.  Safe to say if you keep getting seated in certain seats you may need to re-think your New Year’s Resolutions!

I got stupidly excited about being on this tiny plane as the sun was coming up (after i got over the nerves when it took the pilot three goes to get the engine started!) and took these pics with my iPhone (which explains the dubious quality)….

That’s the sun rising over France.

That’s the pilot with his SatNav despite the fact that you can pretty much see your destination as soon as you take off.  You can (and we did) chat to the pilot if you so wish he’s that close.

This is surely the only way to travel.  I’m a lucky girl that i get to do these things.

I’ve been a domestic goddess this evening making some edible Christmas pressies.  I can’t wait to show you the fruits of my labour but one of the recipients reads my blog so you’ll have to wait until after Christmas.  Safe to say my house smells A-MAZE-ING!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend – I’m off to wrap pressies X
