Travel Fears

Sunday, 2 November 2014

I fear long distance traveling. Driving up to Penang included. But this coming month we’ll be doing a LOT of jetting about by plane, which is even more terrifying for me.

What I fear for the most, however, is the kids’ safety as they go off on a road trip to Singapore with my in-laws’. When I’m behind the wheel, I feel much more at ease and secure about arriving at my destination safely. I keep to the speed limits, my eyes are watching every corner of my field of vision,  I ignore my phone and only pick up messages at a rest stop. And from all these past years of doing annual trips to and fro Penang, I’m used to those 4-hour journeys.

But this time, I’m not the one driving.

All I can do is pray. While I detest this feeling of not being in control, I know it isn’t helpful for anyone. I wish I didn’t have this tendency to worry so much.
