I have always loved biplanes. They are amazing feats of engineering, despite their simplicity. Biggles has always been my favourite hero. Even Rab from Jag flies a biplane. I have always had a dream to fly in one.
Yesterday my dream came true. I flew in a beautiful biplane, over the beaches where I have been staying this week, and close to the island where I spent yesterday feeding wild dolphins. I also treated my daughter to a flight, and when I get the chance I will post a photo.
Why am I writing this? Firstly to encourage anyone who has the chance to seize the moment and enjoy this serene and perfect experience.
And secondly to say that I also learnt about being in the moment. Drink in all the sights, smells, sensations. Make every second count. And be thankful that there are such wonderful things in the world. And I'm not just talking about flying in a biplane...
