Musings: Things I Love About Airports

I wrote a post a few months ago about things that annoy me when I’m at the airport but it’s only fair I do a post on things I love right?

Being bleary-eyed on your journey to the airport in an overpriced cab, but knowing you’ll be in a foreign land the same time tomorrow makes it all worth it.

Champagne with breakfast

This is one of my traditions when getting an early flight, an overpriced breakfast and a glass of champagne because the excuse *fck it I’m on holiday* kicks in. I am yet to try the Nando’s breakfast yet, so when I go to Mexico in November, I’ll be sure to inhale this.



I could write a whole chapter in the book of my life on things I’ve seen in airports but people watching is an absolute must, especially if your flight is delayed and you have some time to kill. I love seeing people’s airport outfits too, how do some people look so EFFORTLESS? No wonder they get upgraded in comparison to me looking like an extra from LOST.



I always end buying something I forgot at an ungodly price but you gotta save the economy somehow? Duty free make up and perfume shopping is one of my weaknesses too and I would happily buy everything if I could…

Staring at the departures board wondering where everyone is going and then squinting to find my flight. Is it me or is the font tiny, perhaps I need new glasses

Being in a GOOD MOOD

Apart from ESTA fiasco last year when going to LA, I can never recall a time when I’ve been in a bad mood at the airport?

Taking off

Taking off my shoes, taking off my jacket, snuggling up with a blanket, watching a movie and taking off from my life, if just for a moment.

What do you enjoy most about being at the airport?

  1. I’m so glad you wrote this because I adore airports, especially when I’m traveling alone, and no one ever understands why! Love that I’m not the only one!
