Despite it being my first flight, I wasn't as nervous as I thought. I even managed to be happy about it. This is right before takeoff.
Like I said before, it's wasn't a big plane (50 people plus crew) at all. We were more towards the back, but our window was right next to the wings.
Daisy has zero fear of flying. She demanded the window seat. She looks out the window with glee, just like my old dog Zelda would look out the car window on car rides.
I will admit it's quite a view from the sky. Though I closed my eyes during takeoff, I tried to be a brave as I could, but I saw something like this about five seconds later. I wasn't prepared for that fast of a jump into the sky.
I still had to cope with my fear of flying, so Daisy wanted to play UNO cards while we waited for the plane to get to Washington D.C. I actually wanted to watch a movie I had pre-arranged on my smartphone, so having her close the window while we played was the compromise. If we weren't playing UNO, she could leave it open. We did experience mild turbulence getting close to DC (we were pre-warned) but it wasn't that bad. A guy near me mentioned that this was a "small stupid plane" and that the plane ride was "weird". I actually didn't think it was that bad, so I guess that means I handled it well.
