Vive La Difference

(the photo posted is a stock photo from pixabay)

It is early morning and we are waiting at the gate at the little North Carolina airport.  I love this little airport.  I will miss it when I move.


The Philadelphia airport is so much different!  Let me count the ways...

The little airport has only a handful of gates.  The waiting areas are clean and quiet.  The Philly airport not so much.

The little airport has only a few food shop/restaurant options after you pass through security.  There is a Starbucks though!

The Philly airport has so many food shop/restaurant options that I'd surely lose count if I tried to count them all.

The bathroom stalls in the ladies room at the little airport are roomy!  Every stall will accommodate a person and their rolling luggage!

The bathroom stalls in the ladies room at the Philly airport are a bit claustrophobic.  You would have to use the handicap stall to bring your luggage in with you.

Parking! BIG difference.  The price for long term parking at the little airport is $10 a day.  The price for long term parking in Philly is much more than $10 a day.  And it is farther away to park than at the little airport.

Breaking news!!  The little airport in NC broadcasts Fox News network on their big screens.  The Philly airport broadcasts CNN.  Surprise Surprise! NOT

Going through security is a breeze at the little airport.  Philly isn't too bad but there is definitely a wait.  I don't mind waiting though.  I'd rather be patient and safe!

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment and it is almost time to board the plane. XO

  2. I get this! The GR MI airport is small and wonderful too, the Newport airport not so much. Safe travels, God bless you both!

    1. Elizabeth, Philly is such a busy airport. You'd think the flights wouldn't have been delayed and cancelled left and right.

  3. Your little airport sounds like our little airport, which is so much easier to go through too.
    Enjoy your trip.
    Blessings,

    1. Dianna, the airport is so huge! They do have a Starbucks and lots of eateries. I'm always hesitant to eat there though. I know people who have gotten really sick from eating at the airport food court. Yikes!

  7. hope you had a good trip there. I went through Philly airport, just myself and my little 3 year old daughter when we were moving to England when my hubby was stationed there, it was a bit overwhelming for me and that was 27 years ago

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
