My first travel experience was coming to America. I was excited but the same time nervous because it was my first abroad travel. And from my country to United States is very far, and you have to trust through Europe. We departed from my country in the evening and after 6 hours long flight we arrived at our transit destination. I was very very tired and the worse thing is that we have to wait for another 5 hours to board another aircraft to our finally destination and we have to seat for another 9 hours of flight to get to America. Trust more I was very tired that I even want to go back to my country. But after tiring 9 hours of flight the pilot finally announced that we have arrived safely and on schedule.

So, my first travel happened about 3 years ago. I went to Rio de Janeiro with my boyfriend and was my birthday. Was awesome. In fact this wasn't my first travel but was my first travel that I took a airplane.
OMG, I was scared but it was amazing. When I arrived in Rio I went to know Corcovado (Cristo Redentor). It is a beautiful place.
I'll never forget this experience.

My first travel experience was coming to America. I was excited but at the same time nervous because it was my first time traveling abroad. And from my country to United States is very far, and you have to cross through Europe. We departed from my country in the evening and after a 6 hour long flight we arrived at our transit destination. I was very very tired and the worst thing is that we have to wait for another 5 hours to board another aircraft to our final destination and we have to sit for another 9 hours on our flight to America.

when I have to travel to my country it's always a big proyect for me,starting with wich airport I would like the stop
we do not have direct flights to my country all kind of events make crazy,some times you have be waiting for long hours in the airport
is not easy specially when you are not familiar with that airport.all depend if you want to save some money you have to get the ticket and the airport wich the airline decide to stop.
the good thing is we can meet more people there and to share a conversation with.Travel is not always a nice experience
I become so nervous when I need to flight but when finally arrive to my destiny it was worth the effort .

One month ago. i went to trip with my family in my country by airplane. I ordered ticket early before 2 months, because a lot of tickets so it's cheaper so much. Each people prepared conformity clothes, don't brought not wear. Especially, we're need plan exactly for trip when start until back home. Contact with staff of the hotel, understand about price, choose service match your money that you have . I think it's important first thing. when arrived, we're relax few a minute and start explore. I had plan for each day, because i don't want missed scarce chance with my family. After trip, i think everything so perfect with a lot of celebrate.

I think it's important the first thing we did when we arrived, was relax for a few minutes. Then we started to explore. I had a plan for each day, because I didn't want to miss anything with my family. After the trip, i think everything was so perfect with a lot of celebrate :?: .

Do you mean comfortable clothes instead of conformity clothes?
