Not to sound like a negative Nancy, but I will never travel overseas. Just the thought of flying over an ocean for hours sets my anxiety over the top. I have flown to visit friends in the states, but I prefer flights that have connections. I cannot stand a flight more than 2 hours.
Then again, I may be on the cusp of being an agoraphobic (sp?) as on my weekends, I prefer to stay at home and not go anywhere. Anytime I have to drive somewhere for a weekend gathering, my anxiety really goes up. Once I am at the destination, I am pretty much ok, but on the day I am to return home, I am so excited.
Just throwing it out, that maybe some family has these same anxieties. Not to mention, the cost.
