Aerial Views from Bicol to Manila and My Fear of Flying

Believe it or not, I am scared of flying. I wasn't like this before. I've been riding planes since I was six years old but as I grew older, and after watching so many TV shows about air plane crashes and reading about them on the news, I guess I've developed a certain fear about them. It doesn't help that the weather these days are more unpredictable than ever. One minute the sun's shining, the next minute there's turbulence just when you're thousands of feet above the ground. I also hate heights despite the fact that Peter always makes me face them.

Anyway, on the way back to Manila, just before we were about to take off from Legaspi airport, I started feeling that familiar tinge of fear once again. I'd normally try to sleep it off as I say my prayers for safety and protection. But outside my window was this magnificent Mayon Volcano, albeit hiding its perfect cone behind the clouds. I kept staring at it and before I knew it, I was taking magnificent photos, not just of Mayon, but of the sky, the sea, the rugged mountains, plains and valleys and those tiny little buildings below all the way back to Manila! I was so engrossed by the beauty of it all that it made me forget how scared I was of flying!

So anyway, I just wanted to share some more photos here with you. I first blogged about Mayon Volcano's aerial views yesterday and today I wanna show more...

Aside from seeing Mayon Volcano from up high, another highlight for me was seeing Quezon City circle from up there for the very first time. Teehee.

I'm such a kid sometimes! ^_^
