I have pre-trip panic, but for my 18 year old dd's trip! 😳 She flys on Sunday with her 18 year old friend! I'm way more stressed then she is 🤣. Her friend has only been once before with her family so my dd is in charge! I will be grey by the time she gets home 😖! If any one is on the BA flight to Orlando on Sunday, keep an eye out for them for me! 🤣!

For me it's the night before I have a total freak out. Every single year. So if you are looking down at my countdown... Yup. We go tomorrow and I am on here trying to DIBB myself out of a complete panic, so I was immediately drawn to this thread!

I do it every year. I know its totally irrational. But I still do it.

At the moment I am finding multiple reasons not to go at all.

Just keep Dibbing, just keep dibbing, just keep dibbing...

This is so me! I look forward to it 110% when were talking about booking and getting round to choosing what well be doing. I think then the reality of all the months of saving, planning, sneaking surprises, and rechecking plans...and am sure Ive missed something! One more sleep and hopefully the worrying will all be worthwhile and well all have a wonderful holiday. Not sure what we do to stop the worrying! Enjoy yourselves!

This is totally me! I love all the booking and planning but do get the pre trip panic that the flights arent really booked or that something else has been forgotten.

As far as I'm concerned the holiday only starts once the plane has taken off.
Im just the same... once on the plane I relax. I too might be described as a woman of a certain age!

Also, booking flights isnt always something I do massively in advance. Our last holiday I was still fiddling with dates and destinations six weeks before we went.

DDD - have a great holiday!

Thank you x
