I had my first plane ride when I was about 5 or 6 years old. It wasn't a very long ride, but it was in a very small plane and I was not a good traveler to begin with. I used to get motion sickness when traveling by car, and very often, Father would take the other children and drive to holiday destinations while Mother would take me in the train. Apparently, I never suffered from motion sickness when traveling by train. Well, airplane rides caused motion sickness, too. I cried during the entire flight, and begged my father to tell the pilot to stop the plane! My family never tired of teasing me about that!
I've taken several plane rides since that first, rather inauspicious ride. I've become a better traveler, but flying is still not a favorite method of travel.
My daughter took her first plane ride, today. She didn't like flying that much, but, at least, she didn't ask for the plane to be stopped!
