>Well I am sitting in Sydney airport waiting to board my flight down to Melbourne for the weekend and I thought what a good chance to kill some time and make a post. With the exception of the scarey guy across from me who keeps belting his monitor the place is quite calm. Airports always interest me. Everybody is going somewhere, everbody is moving with some sense of purpose. When I think about all the stories that pass through these walls I can’t help but feel connected to the pulse of humanity.

Airports are like gateways to new experiences. You only need to look around to see the anticipation on peoples faces.

I like to sit and look at people and wonder where they are headed or where they are from. Are they going to meet family? are they going on holiday?

I can’t wait to get to Melbourne.

    >Hi ya Shannon. I was in Melb for January in ’05 and it was great. The Phahran swimming pool is a great place to see hot guys. Hope you’re doing ok, life is like that, the reason why I was in Melb was because my bf broke up and I needed to get far away from Canada, and like Melb is very far from Canada. As an old friend of my father would say, “life is good, be good to life”. Not a bad way to look at things eh? Christopher

    >Hi Shannon. Your words could have been written by me. I love watching people (especially in airports) and trying to read something about their lives from their expressions. Are they happy? Content? Upset? Frustrated? Do they love their partner/spouse? You can learn so much just from observation, and it sounds like you are a keen observer.

    I enjoy the blog so much; I come here every day.

    Regards-

    >I hope your Aussie airports are more people-friendly than here in the USA. I have yet to see a good looking guy at San Francisco airport (SFO). Phoenix Sky Harbor was the best I’ve visited in years.

    I have to laugh when I see people rushing off the plane, finding an electric outlet, and then sitting on the floor using their laptop.
