Musings from an airport – Europe vs America

Sitting in an airport in London waiting to board a 2 hour long flight to Spain and looking at the departures table has made me realise just how lucky I am to live somewhere with so many different countries on my doorstep. Take America as an example. If you live in New York City, a six hour flight will take you from the East Coast to San Francisco on the West Coast. From London, taking a flight for under 3 hours – half as long as it takes from NYC to SF – could get you to: Scandinavia, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Poland, Portugal, Hungary, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium… pretty much anywhere in Europe.
