Flight food

I love airports...and I am quite convinced that airports are some of the happiest places in the world. At airports you are bound to see loads of love - families re-united, couples teary farewells or warm embraces and even relieved businessmen when they spot their "name card" in the crowd.

Yes, I really love airports. Whenever I enter an airport, precious memories come flooding back of the time that I was one of a teary couple or a little girl waiting for her daddy to return from a business trip. Often I've excitedly waited in the crowds to spot a friend or family member's face in arrivals or said sad goodbye's while watching a loved one disappearing behind the check-in gates. Oh, and there were the exciting moments that I couldn't wait to board that plane and begin a new foreign adventure.

Man, I really, really love airports. That's why, when my friend Henk jokingly suggested that escape from the city and go have dinner at the airport, I thought it a brilliant idea!

Henk is a brilliant photographer so we doubled our dinner date as a photography lesson.

We found a cozy  restaurant overlooking the planes arriving and departing and talked about our upcoming trips. Henk is going to Turkey in two weeks time and soon I will be heading for Paris(YAY) so a travel themed dinner seemed very appropriate.

We also had something to celebrate....

... Henkie's photograph (well, quite a few of them) got published in a magazine for the first time.

Now, go and buy the  VISI, I promise you wont be disappointed.

I thought I was the ONLY person in the world who felt this way about airports! I was dying, reading your blog!! I used to drive to the nearby airport and do my homework for college, while watching families reunite! lol NO JOKE!

I'm sooooo jealous that you're going to PARIS, but super excited for you, because I know how much you love it! Miss you friend,
