Which Way At The Airport

Airport’s are great places to do which ways and as I had plenty of time during my layover in Melbourne recently I went looking for some for this post. One thing you can find plenty of at an airport is signs. Signs that tell you where to go and when, maps, warnings and of course advertising signs.

The colourful map of the Sydney rail system caught my eye. Strangely I did not see one of Melbourne perhaps because they don’t yet have a rail link to the airport. I don’t know what airports elsewhere are like but I did not raise an eyebrow wandering around with my camera, not even near the doors with the “keep out” signs.

This part of the airport houses Gates 1-10 and only about half of them were busy. I ventured up to Gate 10 and it was deserted. Gates 11 -22 are on the other side of the terminal and I could not be bothered going out and back through security again to see what I thought was probably more or less the same.

I watched a few planes taxiing out to the runway and now I understand what those little circles on the tarmac are for.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.

  1. The photo that was most striking to me was the “In Emergency Press to Open” I really like that photo because of the question it leaves: open what?
