That or stop being a baby.

Australia and NZ are actually nice cruise destinations. You could take a cruise ship down there, and possibly take a ferry or two to get you exactly where you want.
Time: Weeks.
Cost: 1000-2000 pounds.

Once you get to Australia:

http://www.cruisepeople.co.uk/col.htm

It is literally going to take you a month and cost you many times over the price of an air fare. I'd honestly consider the ambient option. Or a sleeping pill? Hell you could book a sky lounge or business class for the cost of doing it via sea or over land. I may not understand but; surely a sleeping pill or ambient, a sky lounge, stretch out and wake up in Auckland?

I have a fear of enclosed spaces and loud noises. Tried the sleeping pill method before and had a panic attack when I woke up and we were still flying

Seek professional help.

Taking a ship isn't feasible for that distance, dude.

How is that actually a thing? Who is the target market for that, other than people with a crippling fear of flying and a pressing need to go overseas?

Why be scared? It's the safest method of travel.

Why? You watch the news too much? Just don't fly Malaysian Airlines and you'll be fine.
Go see your doctor, explain, get a prescription for a few Xanax from him, chill out, fly.

Yeah and don't forget to use copious amounts of booze to flush those Xanax down.

$130/dy freighter. Bunch of months. $11700 est.

If you're useful on a yacht you could help crew a yacht in transition.

“statistically speaking” While they may have thousands of planes in the sky at any given moment there are millions and millions of autos on the road. Of course it's statistically safer. But that is B/S. I have never seen or heard of a car crash where over 100 people were killed all at once . Ask yourself this, is it statistically correct to say your chances of surviving a car crash is better then a plane crash? You bet. Dont just crunch the numbers for flying, crunch all the numbers then you will have the correct result. It aint safer.

I don't think you understand how statistics work.

> Ask yourself this, is it statistically correct to say your chances of surviving a car crash is better then a plane crash?
How is that even relevant? All that means is cars have more fatal crashes, and far far more non-fatal but injuring crashes.

But you're wrong.
AND people like you are the reason there should be entrance exams for adulthood.
You should not be considered an adult, and you shouldn't be making decisions of any kind.
You should be in the care of a professional guardian.

Its fucking amazing the amount of butthurt people in this thread. Let me guess you and a couple others here are pilots right? or maybe flight attendants? Yea thought so. Keep rationalizing "safest way to travel" just so you can feel in control of that situation when deep down you know youre not.

>Dr. Arnold Barnett, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has done extensive research in the field of commercial flight safety. He found that over the fifteen years between 1975 and 1994, the death risk per flight was one in seven million. This statistic is the probability that someone who randomly selected one of the airline's flights over the 19-year study period would be killed in route. That means that any time you board a flight on a major carrier in this country, your chance of being in a fatal accident is one in seven million. It doesn't matter whether you fly once every three years or every day of the year.
>In fact, based on this incredible safety record, if you did fly every day of your life, probability indicates that it would take you nineteen thousand years before you would succumb to a fatal accident. Nineteen thousand years!

yea, perhaps you can bring statistics into the debate instead of "muh feels"

stop arguing like a fucking toddler and maybe you'll get your point across

maybe you should just train or ride the ship everywhere you stupid fuck
