How a weirdo sees the world…
I love airports! So many emotions! So much excitement! The excitement of going somewhere far away, experiencing new adventures, meeting new people, soaking in a different culture, reinventing yourself! The excitement and the longing of going home, see your family and friends, the comfort of your own bed and familiar surroundings!
Airports are so shiny, everything blinks and is overpriced. Also, there never seem to be enough seats! Still, I love it! You meet people from all over the world, listen to conversations in a dozen different languages and queue and wait more than you have in the last 2 years together (the latter excludes regular flyers and Brits).
For some reason, I love watching planes take off and landing. It’s incredibly fascinating and hypnotic… well, after nearly 4 hours of waiting it is! I find it unbelievable that such enormous machines can fly! Yes, I know the science behind it, but still, it just seems… well, unbelievable.
