I’ve been thinking about flying again but I’m in two minds about it. This shot reminds me of many things, not necessarily of being on a plane but of places, holidays, people and airports. I like that.
These are the top five things I enjoy about flying: browsing at the airport and getting something good to eat, when the plane roars along the runway and lifts into the air, sitting on the plane looking out the window, pulling down the tray table and getting refreshments and finally, walking out of the plane on arrival (particularly if the temperature’s different and it’s very warm).
Plane toilets, however, are at the bottom of my list and I try not to touch anything while I’m in one. Obviously that’s fairly challenging when it’s pretty much standing room only. I would say that these toilets are a whole experience in themselves. Perhaps I’ll talk about that another time, once I’ve reminded myself.
Although I’d really like to get away I feel there may be a new layer of complexity in flying somewhere. I’m sure I will – just not sure when yet.
