Citizens of the Airport #27 – I Still Prefer Travelling With My Mother
I like to think of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol as a village, inhabited by millions of people for not more then a few hours per day max. But who are the people that pass through? What makes them tick? I’m on a quest to meet the Citizens of the Airport!
“I felt the taxes in the Netherlands were too high, so I moved to Antwerp. But then I met a guy in a bar who told me that I had it all wrong and that I could do a lot better. So I said: ‘I’m all ears!’ At the end of a memorable night, he caved in and told me: “ANDORRA! You have to go to Andorra. I moved there the month after that.”
Flying with my mother
“I enjoy flying with my mother. Since her husband died, she regularly flies with me. She has seen a lot more of the world than her sisters and brothers. I am CEO of several companies and I travel all over the world. But even so, I still prefer travelling with my mother.”
You know what? People who live here should be really glad they were born in this country. There are a lot of countries where people are a lot worse off.”
