Recently, I had to wait 4 hours for my flight DTW
, at the new NW
Worldport terminal. There were plenty of shops to look at, places to eat, but most of the time I relaxed at the north end, by the windows, looking at a/c landing and taking off, especially them ole' NW
When I went to Australia in 1989, I had a 12 hour Sunday daytime layover in Aukland, NZ
. I took a bus into the city about 7:00 am, got some breakfast, took a bus tour of the city area later in the morning, took a ferry back and forth in the harbor, then took a city bus to a part of the city near the beach, had lunch, then worked my way back to the airport for the flight to LAX
which was to take off about 6:00 pm. Was a nice break and encouraged me to visit NZ
a few years later.
