If you are looking to travel to Iceland, it's most likely you have already seen pictures of the twisted airplane wreckage on the black sands of Sólheimasandur. Whether you already know the story behind the plane, are looking for directions or is something you've just...

Before I say anything, take a moment to take in the astounding beauty from the main image taken whilst flying over the south coast of England! As you may have previously read in part I of our flying story, for my birthday Kate had arranged for me to fly a plane, to which I secretly upgraded to allow her to fly too! The date was getting closer and quite a few people kept asking if I was nervous yet, being so excited to being able to take controls of a plane kept me sane. On the day at the crack of dawn, we should have left the house.. instead we were a little late and that's when a mixture of excitement and nervousness kicked in. It's not every day you wake up knowing you're going to be flying a plane. So off we headed to Brighton, on what can only be described as the perfect day as far as English weather is concerned ;)  

For my last birthday Kate surprised me with what can only be described as the most amazing, right out there kind of present.. to fly a plane! So now the weather has started to slowly improve in good old Blighty, it's time I made the call and to book my flight experience! - A little nervous but so excited, I can't wait!

As Kate got me this amazing thrill seeking gift, I felt a little saddened by the fact I'd be having the time of my life whilst she's got her feet firmly on the ground below. I knew no matter how I described the experience it would never be the same as actually doing it for yourself...
