Airport is a unique place where people experience all sorts of emotions. Some wait to reunite with a loved one or a friend. others wait to commence or continue their travels, looking forward to a holiday. There are always crowds of business travellers, jetting between cities and meetings, anxiously waiting to finally get on the plane. There are also those sad and heartbroken ones who are saying goodbye to someone dear to their heart, whether for a while or forever.
Sitting in the airport lounge, makes you realize just how many different people, with completely different lives, backgrounds, countries of origin, priorities and feelings come under one roof. All these people have one thing in common – they are waiting for a flight. The lounge is filled with anxiety, excitement, sadness, determination to get to a destination and general buzz of people waiting. There are kids running around, women reading magazines, business people on their iPads and others who are just happy to calmly wait until boarding.
Airport is good place to reflect on the past and think about the future. All sorts of thoughts enter your mind, hopes are born and pages in life are finally turned over.
As I am patiently waiting to board, I realise that this is the first time in many years where I am just happy to be here, looking forward to getting off the plane in a different city so that I can spend a few days unwinding and enjoying ‘me’ time.
The boarding call for my flight has been announced. Everyone jumps up and rushes to form a line. I’m casually strolling and smiling… This time airport evokes only positive emotions in me. ‘Me’ time – here I come…
