The wind of the north

First of May 2012 ... no! it was the second of May since the flight arrived after midnight. =)

Before leaving the plane I put on my jacket and went out.
As soon as I stepped out the door of the plane a freezing wind passed through my bones and my soul. Yes because I always felt the cold as a discomfort but this one was like an embrace, I do not know how to explain better but I can tell you that it struck me so much and infact the title of this blog is about that wind.

Went dawn down the stairs and headed for the terminal walking through the empty and windy outside of the airport. Of course there were other people and soon, without knowing how, I was talking with an english girl of about my age, which was shivering like me.
She was talking about to put her feet in warm water but in those moments I did not remembered the meaning of the word "warm" so I struggled to understand that part. I was just so excited to be there.

First flight

1 May 2012

Once inside the airplane an hostess told me something that I did not understood, but while speaking she also indicated me, with arm gestures, something like "take a seat somewhere overthere" so I walked past the middle of the plane until i found  a comfortable place where to sit just next to the window as i wished to, with a lot of space for the legs. =)
The plane was quite empty, about 70% of the seats were empty.
From outside the window i could see the wing with the huge engine attached to it, just next my seat.
The hostesses showed the emergency routine and other general information.
There was also a short italian explanation.
The important thing was to hook the safety belt and turn off cellphones.

After some time of preparation the plane started to taxi slowly in order to reach the landing line for take off.
When it took position, it started to take speed and after a run has taken off!
I was flying for the first time! =D
The plane was lifting fast and soon it was possible to admire all the city lights in the night.
Inside the airplane it seemed like a normal train on railways but watching out the window I was in the clouds! =D
