    What’s your favorite way to get around? Personally, I love a long airplane ride but I know a lot of people are afraid.

    How can you love a long airplane ride? I feel too out of control for that. I am supposed to travel to Shanghai soon and I already have anxiety about the flight.

    I like traveling by train. A beautiful scenic train ride is great. You can just zone out.

    I can totally do a flight but my threshold is 2, maybe 2.5 hours. I went to college in LA and grew up in Oakland so I got super used to the 1 hour flights.

    I’d rather fly than drive, unless it’s a 1 day road trip with friends.

    Ya’ll, I’m about that cruise life haha! JK being trapped on a floating tin can for days at a time kind of scare me. I kind of love road trips because you can do whatever you want and take all he necessary pee breaks (I have pee travel anxiety!)

    Road trips, and going by train are two of my favorite ways to travel when my nerves are shot from flying so much.

    I’m excited to travel by rail in Europe. I have a trip planned for 2018.

    Anywhere you can people watch is my preferred method. Airports…Trains…but best of all Subways are always a good time when exploring big cities.me in the 70s

    Peeing anxiety is so real!! I pee before going to the airport. Then after security. Then before boarding. Then once we board, I even pee pre-take off. I’ve had peeing anxiety since I was a little kid!

    After surviving a 14 hours flight from LA to Melbourne Australia, flying is a breeze lol. The trick is to keep yourself distracted and realize that it’s only temporary. I also enjoy scenic train/bus rides and the occasional ferry.

    Train is the best way for me especially if you sit on the side of the water view side going from San Diego to LA.

    I absolutely love taking the train and I used to have bad anxiety about flying. I used to work for a cruise line and would have to fly to various different countries to embark and begin my contracts. After that job I lived in Melbourne, AU for three years so needless to say I got used to long flights. Once you get one long haul under your belt you will be surprised how quickly you’ll be looking at a 4/5 hour flight like its nothing. One tip I would recommend for those with flight anxiety is looking up the facts and statistics of flying. I looked up information on what the sounds are that you hear from the cabin before, during, and after the flight. You’d be surprise how much this can cut down on your nervousness when you know what is going on. Also breathing exercises and reading about what is happening to the plane when experiencing turbulence is a great help!
