Floating On By...


I absolutely love to fly! I love everything about it. Most people think I'm nuts because I seriously love airports! Yes, crazy! I love checking in, walking around, visiting the gift shops, getting ready to board, getting on board...the whole thing. I especially love the smell of jet fuel. I know, I'm seriously disturbed! I think it must come from doing quite abit of overseas traveling to various locales in the South Pacific when I was in my 20's. I went on three fabulous trips for extended periods of time, my longest was one year, and spent alot of time in airports, sleeping in airports...you name it. It was actually pretty adventurous and I realize how much travel has changed since then especially the safety aspect of it. My mode of transport for the most part was my feet in most countries. I did alot of hitchhiking in New Zealand and it was incredible! In Australia I bought a car on two of my trips. That was great! It would be so nice to go back there someday. That part of the world is so amazing and so beautiful. The people are so friendly and warm.

I took the picture above on my way home to Canada in March. I guess I'll have to be content with that for now. With the price of fuel, it's a miracle that anyone can afford to fly. But I guess it's better than walking... Until next time, ~Stacy~
