My love for airports is no secret. I chalk it up to the amount of traveling I did as a kid and the fact that some of my favorite movie and television scenes happen to take place in airports I find them so comforting and relaxing. Sunday was my second time visiting the Detroit Metropolitan Airport and I absolutely ADORE it. What I love most about airports are the cute little shops, the yummy (albeit expensive) snacks and the welcoming feeling you get.
In the past three weeks I’ve been to six (ORD, JFK, SCE, IAD, DCA and DTW) different airports. and I must say, I love airports! Seriously, airports are the BEST! I’ve been flying since a very young age and I’ve been flying by myself since I was a teenager. I just find airports to be so fascinating. Maybe it has to do with my Love Actually obsession, but I think airports are very comforting. People saying goodbye to love ones, meeting up with old friends, traveling to far and fun places, it all excites me.
I also love discovering and exploring new airports! Today was my first time flying from Detroit Metropolitan Airport and it is adorable! Right now, as I type this, I’m sitting across from the adorable Sanrio store.
It’s weird, most people dream of visiting as many cool cites or countries as possible, but not me. I dream of visiting cool airports! I’ve found that each airport has it’s own little personalty. Most of the time I find that the airport matches the vibe of that city. I can’t wait to see what amazing airports (and places) 2014 has to bring!!
