(Not Being on an) Airplane Appreciation Post

(Not Being on an) Airplane Appreciation Postfeatured

Has anyone ever enjoyed an airplane flight? Sure, in the good ol’ times you could wear your fanciest suit, smoke a cigar and watch your trophy wife get day drunk on martinis on a plane, and now you’re crammed between a sweaty, flip-flop-wearing dadbod and the loudest infant on earth, but was it ever pleasant? The dry air, the turbulence, the sheer fact you’re up in the sky on a piece of metal… And airplane bathrooms? It’s an abomination.

I’m not especially afraid of flying, it’s the whole atmosphere that makes me anxious and irritated. But just like the blessing of motherhood outshines the horror of childbirth (so they say, my mom just laughed when she heard that, so maybe it’s the other way around), the joy of finding ourselves somewhere far, far away in mere hours urges us to brave the overcrowded deathtraps that are planes again and again.

As you might have already guessed, this post is brought to you by me trying to escape the dreadful reality of one airplane flight from Munich to Moscow. A hipster-looking guy next to me is reading Camus and sneering at my outfit photos. We both know that you’re being the asshole right now.

    wow , love this

  • The first time I ever flew, I was quite enthralled by the novelty of it all. Every time after though has filled me so much anxiety. Once, a landing was so terrible that I thought I might die. Did you know that flights today take longer than they used to decades ago? To say nothing of how much longer the whole check-in and security process is. Airports and airplanes are a necessary evil for anyone who wants to travel unfortunately!

    But I will say there is one thing I love about airports and that is travellators. You know, those flat escalator things? It is practically impossible to feel sad while standing on one of those. Think about it next time you’re on one!

    Beautiful, simple but perfect. The dress is so cute.

    Haha! So true about the flights – both with the dislike of journey but love of arrival; the sense of going somewhere far. And the pictures are absolutely gorgeous with an outfit that’s so fun.

  • Sneering at your outfit photos?!! Silly hipster… Anyway, I’m quite taken with the lovely photos on this post–love how you styled this outfit and paired the striking slip dress with the tee. The black tie around the neck is perrrfect my dear! –Ginger
