Places

I figured most posts regarding the topic “Places”, people will be talking of places they have been to and/or want to go to. But prior to arriving to these places, we suffer the arduous process of getting in line and waiting at the airport or bus terminal.

As someone who has to take flights at least twice a year, I have had my fair share of waiting.20130303-001451.jpg

Waiting to check-in.
Waiting to board.
Waiting for the “fasten seat belts” sign to go off.
Waiting to be greeted by a loved one or a new adventure.

Then going back from these trips,
I wait again.
Waiting to check-in again.
Waiting to board again.
Waiting for the “fasten seat belts” sign to go off again.
Waiting to go back to reality.

I’m used to it, though.
One can’t help but find ways of making the waiting times bearable and even fun.

You have no choice but to do so.

You learn to endure all the waiting because what’s at the other end is and will be totally worth it.

  8. I am with you there. I’ve done my fair share of traveling, often to the same places over and over again, but those waiting and those flights! I’ve learned to enjoy them and appreciate them–not just endure them–because the destination is always worthwhile.
