seatacI love to fly. I love the anticipation of going to a new place and the buoyant feeling of floating above the world. Even waiting in an airport lobby can provide new experiences. I really enjoy spending time in grand spaces like the updated lobby at Sea-Tac. It almost feels like a mall, and watching jets take off and land while eating a great pre-flight meal is pretty awesome.

The entire concept of flight is pretty amazing. Who would think that a three-story monstrosity like the  airplane below could get off the ground and defeat gravity so effectively? I know, engineers would.

airfranceWe might take it for granted these days, but imagine a world without air travel. Trains and cars would be the fastest way around. Going to a different continent would be a huge undertaking.

We’re lucky to live in a time when it’s so easy to see distant lands and experience different cultures. I always try to remind myself of this as I get into a long line at security!fastenseatbelt
