Even though I have never been on a plane, I still have thoughts about flying and airports.
Since I can remember I like the feeling of being in an airport. What can be more fun? I like the food, even with astronomical prices; in fact, sometimes I find that I enjoy my food more when it is expensive. But mostly I like to feel that I am in an international place. Well, I must admit that I've only been to one airport, but I feel like I know them all.
I am not afraid of flying (I think), but I can imagine that the excitement of being in the airport may just be more intense than being on a plane. At the airport, one can make international friends without leaving one's home city. Though, I do not recommend going to the airport only to make friends...that would be weird.
