It’s link time again with Heledd over at Running in Lavender. My Captured Moment for this week is a photo of an 11 months old Reimer, a first time traveler, taken at Edinburgh Airport. There he stood curiously looking through the aircraft that we were about to hop into while waiting for our boarding time.
This photo was definitely a memorable one for him because it will remind him a lot of his first time experience as a young traveler. To date, he had been to a lot of airplanes and to different countries at an age of 5.
This photo is a remembrance of:
First time to leave home for 3 long weeks.
First time to step on an airport.
First time to go on a holiday abroad.
First time to be in an airplane on a long haul flight.
First time to be in KLM Boeing 737.
First time to sleep and have dinner in an aircraft.
First time to be in a different continent from UK, in an Asian continent.
Most of all, it was his very first time to visit and meet my family back in my home country.
Relative to this photo as a moment of his first times. This was also the time when he celebrated his first birthday in Philippines. While we were there, he also had his first time to be on a boat and on the sea as we had an island hopping as one of the excursions we’ve done. He also got his first haircut, a nice boyish cut that suited him better. Hence, all those baby curls were gone when we returned back home.
Anyhow, there’s a lot of first time moments he had on that first holiday abroad. First times worth cherishing and reminiscing.
What age did your kids first traveled on an airplane?
