Travel Update: Airport 3 out of 4. NYC, Ottawa, FRANKFURT, Florence!
Interesting things I have learned so far learned today:
-You can’t bring Snow Globes through security when traveling on Air Canada. I think the ‘snow’ might interrupt air control signals?
-There are NO signs in Canadian Airports (which I’ve also noticed in Toronto). They must expect the ol’ Mountie blood to kick in and help with tracking. It’s a good thing all of the Canadians I saw looked ready to hike a mountain; complete with tracking boots and a even a pink fishing pole (Note to self: add to Christmas list!)
-Just in case your Mountie blood wasn’t flowing strong enough, there were plenty of pictures of them…on horseback…among evergreens….holding snow globes!…And plenty of pictures of moose (mooses? meese?)
-Canadian Planes often have broken reading lights that won’t turn off, making sleep nearly impossible. When brought up to the stewardess, the reply is, “Seat A5? Ok, I’ll add it to the list!” Helpful!
-German flight attendants also ride bicycles through the airports. With little baskets. And a horn.
-Apparently ‘football’ is so exciting that it has to be played everywhere, all the time. Today’s new field? The moving sidewalks between terminals of course!
-German stewardesses ALL look like supermodels.
-Probably because European Duty Frees are even better than a Sephora!
