yes, I tried traveling by airplane once before, the journey took 3hours, I slept the entire journey because I was exhausted.

The longest flight I have taken was from Venezuela to Madrid with around 10 hours.

Yes, I have traveled by air some times here in my country among cities, the flights aren't long, it takes forty-five minutes approximately. The longest travel I have made by air was Bogota-San Andres Island, I enjoyed it so much this travel, it took one hour and a half, it was so beautiful to see the see before and after the landing. The thing I most scare about a flight is the takeoff.

Yes. I travelled by plane. When I was 8. It was flight to Egypt (just couple hours).
Our family prefer to travel by car. It is more comfortable and you don`t need to wait for your departure day if you want to visit another city or country.

I have travelled by air 3 times. It's a marvelous experience and joyful thing. My previous flight wasn't as long as much .It only takes 2 hours or less.

Turn Out means to happen or become known to happen in a particular way

What will be the best synonym here if I want to rephrase below this example

• It turns out that she had known him when they were children

Hi amit_ck,

I'd suggest one of these options.

  • It appears ...
  • It seems ...
  • It transpires ...

The last option is formal in style. What do you think, do these options capture your meaning?

Best wishes,

Thank you Sir

Mybe around 13 hours on board. Long journey!

Yes, I travelled more than 10 times by air plane. And the longest flight I had taken was to Brazil. As you know the flight takes normally 9 hours. It's so long... But in the end it pays off because Brazil is an incredible country.
