We had been on a flight for about three hours, and I was very scared, because that was my first time on a plane. We were sightseeing in Arizona for a day or two, taking pictures and shopping around the local stores, looking for cool stuff to bring home for our families. The day after, we were supposed to take a van for a 12 hour trip to Puerto Penasco, to the Penasco del Sol Hotel. That
The day before she “earned her wings,” Bryant was traveling back home with her judging colleagues from another gymnastics conference. The day she got home was the day she set out to travel on a plane by herself to visit her family. Despite the minor obstacles she faced, Bryant had a successful trip; she was able to stay attentive and focused on what she needed to do. She was finally accepting some limitations, such as having to keep her memory book near by and having little notes every where to remind her of
We are going to crash!” Anna exclaims as she imagined the aircraft that she would be boarding on as soon as its wing was fixed. As she was waiting for her plane to be restored, she was switched to another flight. This caused her a little confusion, but later was content. At least she did not have to deal with the broken winged aircraft! After about an hour, she was told that the wing is fixed and they are ready to board.
Anxiety, it’s the feeling that came over me when I arrived at the airport to come to America. I was born in Brasil, it was my home. So boy was I shocked when I heard that we were moving to the United States, and I was only six years old. My parents thought we would have a better life here in America because, with all the “opportunities” it offered, it was the place to be. My father flew over one month before I was scheduled to; he planned on getting everything situated by finding a job and a place for us to live.
At the same time, Sal remarks that “I prayed that we would not be in an accident (I was terrified of cars and buses) and that we would get there by my mother’s birthday-seven-days away and that we would bring her home” (Creech 7).

I came from a Caribbean Island called Trinidad and Tobago was very challenging to adapt to the American lifestyle. On April 20th, 2004, I boarded a flight to the United States of America to visit my mom and sister. As I look out the window as the plane prepared for take-off, I felt a rush of anticipation to see what was so exciting about the United States of America that everyone had spoken so highly about but sadden that I had to leave my friends and some of my family behind in a place I once called home. Upon my flight after spending about 5hrs airborne, the pilot came on the speaker giving announcements about our approach to the “big apple” New York as they say. As the plane landed, I was escorted off the plane by one of the flight crew.

It was two months before my fifth grade graduation and three years from my parents divorce. Little did I know the news my mom told me that day would change my life forever. Tears came down my face when she told me we were going to be moving to New Jersey. At this moment I was feeling very confused and startled. Not only was I upset because I was leaving a place I have called home for eight years, but because I was leaving my friends and most importantly my dad and brother.
Which meant I would go crazy on the plane which was not so good. If I didn’t go to California I could stay on Hawaii at my friend’s house. I had a big choice to make.

How did we manage to fit all of those furniture and appliances in the truck? One of my last days in California, my family had a goodbye party.

Nothing quite as horrific, than being sick on a trip. A trip that is once in a lifetime and costing you a lot of money. In the past, a trip with just my husband, almost always meant an ear infection days prior to our outbound flight. Nothing worse than aching ears during a flight. When we took the girls on their first airplane trip, a year ago, both girls developed the sniffles days prior to take off.
