I have been flying all over the US since I was little and often times as an un-accompanied minor. I have been in a plane that was struck by lightning and lost power breifly, however I am still completly un affected by it and fall asleep the second the engines start going.

 

it is crazy.

I hate flying - sux cuz i love to travel! But I feel like the older I get the worse Im becoming about flying! FI hates it too - he is worse than me

 

I really hate the whole experience - the stress of the airport, delays, lost luggage, taking your shoes off, being super uncomfortable, turbulence, kicking and screaming babies

 

Im waiting for the day we can teleport ourselves :)

Wow - those kind of stories actually make me feel a bit better... that is - if something does go wrong.. it most likely will still be ok :)

The flight attendant fell down and cut her head open and although she was not seriously injured she was bleeding all over.

It's not that I particularly like it, but I love to travel... and I travel for work. So, I'm a platinum flyer on no less than two programs (Flying Blue and Miles &More) - meaning I gather more than 200,000 frequent flyer miles annually.

 

I stress only in the airport, until I go through security. I always fear I will miss my flight ! After that, it's like a little vacation, a moment apart. I have my ipod, my magazines (I only read tabloids on flights), my bottle of water...

 

The nec plus ultra : flying business... it does not happen oftern, but then it's a party wink.gif Just getting in the plane and seating in these seats that completely lay down (in Air France)... and getting a cup of champagne... Samba !

 

Right now I'm completely obsessed with the lost Rio-Paris Air France flight. I'm awaiting the manifest (to be published tomorrow) anxiously. Some of my colleagues knew people onboard. It's so awful. I know flying is safer that taking your car (90 less chances to die), but when something like this happens, this is striking. Plus Air France is my preferred airline, so I'm anxious to know what happened.

I LOVE flying. It's a comfort zone, partially cause I used to work for an airline, and because we travel alot!!!! I think working for an airline I think really helps cause I kind of understand everything that is happening.

 

If you're really freaked out about turbulence sit in the row just on the back end of the wing, you'll feel it less there!

 

I'm also very interested in what happened w/ the Rio-Paris flight. Accidents happen and guaranteed whatever happened on this flight happened REALLY REALLY fast!

I love to fly and to be at airports and planes and travelling...hahahah I love even driving by the airport and watching the planes take off and land!!!

But the FI HATES IT!! I have gotten him to be a little better but he doesn't even like to get out of his seat, just nice and tightly buckled in!

I have gone through some turbulence that kinda felt like a rollercoaster...but nothing major!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
