@Moonwalker: i've never been to Spain. Would like to go there some day. I've flown a bit though. Riding civil and military planes. Piloted Cessna 172. sat in a F-16D this summer. :) (1 Hour ago)
But Malaga was great. Loved the weather, the hills and mountains. We went to the sea, a zoo, cable car up a mountain and last but not least visited their red light district too, haha. (5 Hours ago)
And it was quite a sight to eventually be above the clouds or see nothing but clouds or sky and no land below you, lovely. (5 Hours ago)
@asdfg: @asdfg: Great. A very nice experience and not scary or whatsoever at all. Quite awesome to see how you lift off and before you know it Amsterdam / Malaga was waaaaaay down below. (5 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: how was it to go on an airplane for the first time? (5 Hours ago)
Back in Holland after my vacation in Malaga, Spain. Two more hours by train and then I'm home. Spain was fucking awesome. (6 Hours ago)
