LOCATION: YVR AIRPORT, VANCOUVER, BC
My hometown airport has so many hidden – and not-so-hidden – attractions.Travel has become something of a frequent occurrence in my life, but that doesn't make it any less exciting (or more mundane). I get so energized every time a trip draws near. Even the typically annoying parts of travel – airport security, customs, weird seatmates – hold a certain thrill for me. One of my favorite things when traveling by airplane is to plan a longer layover and explore the airport (and, if possible, the city). This time around, all the airports (YVR Vancouver, Schiphol Amsterdam, and BLL Billund) are ones I'm pretty familiar with, so I was just having fun visiting old favorites. Here are just a handful photographs from my few hours on home turf at YVR (and don't forget to check out my travel outfit from this airport as well!).
