How I love being at airports! Seriously. I’m always a bit concerned that I don’t make it in time for a plane or that a train is delayed and in order to minimise the risk potential I end up being way too early at airports. I can imagine that you know what I’m talking about. More recently though I found out that there are people out there who dislike airports. There is obviously an astrological signification for that but definitely not in my chart. My Sagittarius energy loves being here. I feel so much at home and that’s probably why I find myself here hours before my actual flight.
When I walk through the gateways, it feels like there is so much going on, oh so much culture in the air, it’s amazing. Is there anyone who is not happy when he is going on a trip? Let’s assume for a moment that most people are experiencing the ultimate freedom, leaving behind their office cages and making their moments count now. Especially now with the Easter atmosphere, I think it is rather unlikely that people are going for surgery or funerals anywhere, so it seems even more likely that there are positive vibes to be found at airports and as I walk through the maze I feel like a lucky fish in a very happy bowl of travel vibes.
The security check went fine and I felt even luckier that I didn’t need to go through the naked-scanning-thingy or whatever you may call that in English. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s good that they want to ensure flights are safe but really at the risk of one’s health? Maybe I’m too much of a Virgo in this respect, but to me it feels like I’m exposing myself to some really damaging rays which I’d rather like to avoid. We live in such a toxic space of all kinds of rays already, but I’ve seen airports before where you cannot even out of the naked scanner. It’s like “hey we want to see you naked and we are going to if you want it or not”. Excuse me, can I please have back my privacy Sir?
What follows is the obligatory stroll through the perfumery and – et voila – in theory Finja would be ready to take off. In practice though, the flight is not departing for 2 more hours (remember: I’m always too early!). Today is a very special airport day though, the sun is shining and lighting up the airport hall and as I find my way upstairs to some more shops (I’m always exploring the entire option of airport options), I find this incredible dining place. A place which has written “hope you see wonderful things on your travels” and it is lit up in the most beautiful sunlight. From here I have a view onto the tarmac. A young boy is checking the horizon though binoculars. I wonder what he is seeing. People eat burgers, drink tea and enjoy the moment. I don’t spot anyone who looks sad, bored or discontent. Such a lovely place.
I sip on my Corona and as the sun sets, I wish you all the happiest of Easter you ever had.
