Flying, without doing anything crazy
Many trips across the English Channel can just be a nuisance to reach your destination. It doesn't have to be, I recently discovered that you can re-enact the fairytale of flying seen in famous film Titanic on a Ferry.
Take a minute out of your journey to leave the shops and cafes on board, to take a walk up on deck with a friend, the windier the better. The wind feels like gales however if you step up on to the first railing, have a friend hold you by the waist and open your arms, you will be stunned by the instant uplift you feel. All of a sudden you're soaring across the sea and you cannot believe you have never done this before. Rose was not lying in Titanic, you are completely overwhelmed by flight and it is truly inspirational. Of course a sunny day is better than rain, as that could end up being quite painful!
