Transit Terminal Vol. 1

*Writing this post because I just really have to start blogging regardless of my many reservations and excuses.

This Transit Terminal series I’m hoping to make a habit of updating is just going to be a random collection of the things I’m up to lately. “Transit” since I’m always on my way, and these are the things en route. “Terminal” because I’ve had this fascination with the life that goes on in airports ever since I watched that Tom Hanks movie. So these posts are little tidbits of what life’s been consisting of lately. They could also be previews of what I’ll be blogging about next.

I’ll also be featuring images of different airports in each post.


I’ve been on summer break and this is what I’ve roughly been up to the last month or so…

Featured airport: Taiwan Taoyuan

This was the last airport I was in and I like it a lot. The views on the hour bus is really something, especially if you’ve mostly been staying in Taipei. It’s an escape from the city and being surrounded by skyscrapers and city sitings. It’s roughly a small airport, but in Terminal 2 there’s a great food court and I always have my best meals of the my Taiwan trips here. Lots of variety and lots of local-international mixes. They also have these cute foldable wax-lined paper cups by their drinking dispensers.

I'd love to hear from you!
