I have never traveled by plane outside my country but my old brother has. He has been to Colombia, Panamá, Nicaragua (not by plane but by car and bus), Guatemala, Mexico, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington. And I have to say I´m proud of him. I hope to start travelling by plane outside very soon. Regarding to my person, I have the opportunity to travel by plane two times (inside my country, Costa Rica). The first time I lost the trip (By the time I arrived at the gate, the plane was already departured), and the second time was the first time I traveled. It was a necessary (urgently) reason because that day my little baby first boy was born, he was born in march 23rd, 2019. (Yes, last year. :) )
