Citizens of the Airport #28 – The First Big Trip I Made On My Own
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!
This morning I was worried I’d get stranded. My flight was cancelled, so I panicked a bit. Fortunately, I was rebooked to a different flight, which is taking off shortly…
Where I’ve been? Do you have a moment? Here we go: Serbia, Budapest, Paris, Seattle – gasps for air – Santiago and Karlsberg.
Anchorage is probably my favourite place. I really loved travelling by train through the spectacular Alaskan landscape. You even see bears and elk along the way. Truly magnificent!
Looking after myself
This was the first big trip I made on my own. I first explored Europe and then started on the other continents. At first, I was really worried about having to look after myself. I really was quite nervous. But it was a lot easier than I expected. You become independent quite fast if you dare to take the bull by the horns!
