Where did you fly first in Flight Simulator?

Where did you fly first in Flight Simulator? I'm intrigued by the question because I think it reveals so much. Did you fly home? What does home mean to you? Did you relive a trip? Why? And what happened when you did?

I didn't go where I thought I would. Eventually I did - I flew over Brighton Pier, over my hometown, a flight I've been lucky enough to do in real-life, albeit in the back of a tiny plane while my brother flew it.
