I've traveled by plane many times. However, they are domestic flights, so the longest flight that I've ever taken is only 2 hours long.

Yes I did travel by air. My longest flight was from Istanbul to Nairobi in 2019. Before boarding on the plane I had expended some times in the duty free as I came earlier in the airport that day. It took us almost 7 long hours to reach our destination, fortunately the journey was pleasant as the hostesses were extremely kind and both meals were tasty.

i have never go to foreign country by air.

Well I love flying to travel long distances. It's fast and pretty cheap. For another transport service - a ship for example, or the train - is much more expensive.

A couple of years ago, I went to the United States of America, specifically, to Green Bay, Wisconsin. First of all, I had to get a plane from Arequipa to Lima, then to Houston, and finally, to my destiny. All of that, take me approximately 12 hours, considering the fact I waited for the departure of my flights at the airport of Lima and Houston. But, otherwise, it was a great experience seeing for the first time new places.

That's the reason because I choose a flight to one of the bigger cities. You can fly direct and enjoy a shorter traveling time. After a one or two-day city sightseeing I rent a car and start a roadtrip to the destinations on my bucketlist.

I have travelled by plane many times, but I always remember one special trip, from Shanghai to Santiago of Chile, were roughly 28 hours of fly due to transfer, first leg was Shanghai to San Francisco,USA, second leg to Miami and finally the third leg to Santiago, it was very very tiring, because one thing was the fly and the another was the change of hours zone, Chile have a difference of 12 hours with China.

Yes. I have been to Taiwan by plane.
This was my first time to travel abroad so I was nervous even at the check-in desk and the gate at the airport.
However, I could enjoy the meal of the plane and waching some animes on a small TV.
The trip itself was awesome but I wish I'd have brought a carry back as I had a big hand bag, which was uncomfortable.
