A strange blog by an unsuaul character

A traveler's blog, with an interest in cycling, aviation, rail travel and photography. 20, London, bit random.

Ask me anything

G-CIVO gently glides off into the distance bound for New York. Flying is the start of a new journey into the sky that leads you to somewhere far away, being able to end up anywhere in the world. I first got an interest for it when I was younger being able to pop to Dubai a few times before I got older and decided to go flying around the rest of the world. My inspiration for that might not be here any more physically, but I’ll always make sure to remember her wherever I fly to, as she would have loved to have been there with me on each take off and each flight. It will take me a long time to get to a point where I fly like that again, but its one of those things that only time and travel will be able to heal.

Travelling, a piece of mind.

For me travelling is a huge stress relief for me, and I’ve been repeatedly told not to bottle things up. I feel that I need to plan a long trip to somewhere far away to clear my mind, watch the world from a different perspective, enjoying something I’ve always loved. The person who made my world was taken from me, through an illness that I couldn’t help her from which fills me with complications that will take a long time to fix. You spend your time thinking someone will always be there, and then within a few weeks they disappear, sending everything into shock which hasn’t worn off. So I’ll find somewhere far away to go, sit on the side of a beach and watch the waves with her memories right beside me, knowing she is there and never forgetting her at all.

Take nothing for granted and make the most of everything.
