This week, we have the beginning of the Spring school holidays in Victoria and it is surprising how many people are taking their kids overseas for a vacation – despite the glum outlook for the economy, despite the increased political tensions and risk of warfare in many places around the world, despite the increased likelihood of civil unrest and uncertainty in even traditionally “tourist-safe” destinations.
Airports are interesting places and it is always revealing just sitting and watching the people go by. Thousands of faces, each with its own story. Some travel for pleasure, some for work, some for family, some because of special reasons for all kinds. Some faces happy, some sad, some apathetic, many showing the fatigue of travel. Yes, despite the rapid pace of travel and ultra-fast airplanes nowadays, travel remains fatiguing and the increased security measures at airports mean great delays. Not to mention the likelihood of flight cancellations and unscheduled layovers.
Nevertheless, travelling is exciting and to see new places (or perhaps to revisit old favourites!), meet new people, immerse oneself in exotic cultures and be surrounded by people speaking in wonderful, strange languages that one doesn't understand is a fantastic prospect!
