Friday Findings::: Come Fly With Me, Let's Fly, Let's Fly Away!

I've never really understood people who are scared of flying. If you go as far as to look at the statistics, you would think that people would be far more inclined to be afraid of driving, leaving their home, or playing competitive sports. Still, flying must seem overwhelming to some people. But here's the thing, you know what's overwhelming? Looking over your shoulder while rapidly going down the runway and finding out then and there that your older sister is terrified of flying. On a route known for its turbulence. On a 3 hour flight.
Anyway, back to my point... some people don't like flying, and it's probably a good thing that at the time my sister Amber had never seen this picture.

Or this video, taken during a storm, of a plane landing at our local airport...

But for other people flying is FUN! We take delight in finding that no matter where we are in the world we can always feel right at home by finding a Starbucks immediately adjacent to a bookstore, peeking out through the plane's window for a breathtaking view, or secretly hating those passengers that get to be chauffeured around in a golf cart. We enjoy creativity within the airport walls...

...and the creative ideas we could come up with if we were stuck in an airport all night. Of course, provided that the security cameras were magically turned off! :P
