Before I got to know aviation we had cruise ships seasons when there were a lot of cruise ships. I adored these beautiful boats (I still have low quality photos, but if you want to see those feel free to send me a PM)
Anyway, when the cruise ships were gone the only thing I had in mind was aviation, and why not? There wasn’t much to spot at my place, we once even got a 747. And a Qatar a340.
But then in 2017 I moved to the Netherlands. No cruise ships even near my place now. So my brain just goes for aviation mode, I miss the ships sometimes though.
I also have to mention that my ear had a hole in the eardrum, so I always puked on a flight. This just made my interest in being a pilot just going down, then my dad told me that I could be an Air Traffic Controller too. That was when I was 8, now I’m 13. And I still have the same dream.
The fun thing about aviation is that it changes every single day. One day that airline still exists and the other an airline adds more routes.
But when i haven’t gotten in love with aviation, I wouldn’t appreciate that I’ve flown on a KLM 747 or a Lufthansa A380. I wouldn’t care that I spotted the El Al 747 before it’s retirement, or a FlyBe plane.
I had the dream of being a captain of a cruise ship, but yeah that wouldn’t had hold on very long anyway.
I guess we’ll never know
