I travel by plane not very often. It is about one per year. I like to visit Japan, Spain, maybe Norway. Also I want to go to Eurotrip by bike.

I traveled by plane only one time in my life. It was in the summer 2020, before pandemic of course. I traveled to Trujillo by plane for job, and this experience was grateful and amazing. I had planificated to travel to others countries in 2020, but It wasn't possible by the blockdown. When the pandemic finish, I will travel again.

I love traveling. I travel about once two years by plane or more than that before. I was planning to travel around Oceania but cover-19 prevented me from going. I'd love to go Oceania especially south pacific islands after the situation settled.
