Solo around Rotterdam

After getting my PPL, I haven’t flown solo a lot. Often with passengers or other pilots, which means I’m rarely completely on my own in an airplane.
Naturally, there’s a big difference between flying with passengers (who might not always be comfortable in a small plane) and with other pilots.
However, being completely on one’s own is different. It can get busy inside the airplane, and even the presence of another person can change your perception of that.
Therefore, I think it is a good idea to periodically fly solo. Just to do everything yourself, without interruptions and without help. Since the weather remained good today, it is exactly what I did.
To be fair, I wasn’t exactly alone. I had a very small, very special passenger sitting neatly in the right seat (hardly strapped in, because the strap is too big): little Madame Pitot!
