I love flying. And airports too - the whole experience. It's as if it guarantees something new, a change from the usual at the least. There's a crystal clear transition zone between the take-off and landing.
The excitement, although a bit muted, is still there on the return because you're returning back with a knowledge of something you didn't have before. And a new energy to face the usual again, even for a few days.
I was now flying for a work related workshop with five other colleagues. This would be a good chance to get to know them.
