Airports — the first step to your next adventure. For some people they’re more of a hurdle than a step. They can be chaotic and stressful, but you have to go through them to get to your destination.

Once in a while you have these cringe worthy moments in the airport. They make you beg the earth to swallow you whole right at that second, but they make really awesome stories once you get over them.
