Philadelphia, PA – International Airport
I landed in Philly after taking a brutal red-eye from San Diego, in the middle seat! The ride was awful. However, upon exiting the aircraft and stepping into the airport my mood immediately changed…from the simple fact that they were bumping classic Philly soul music throughout the airport. Yup, sweet Philly soul emanating from the overhead speakers. This just seemed to immediately and automatically life the mood.
Why don’t all airports do this? Traveling is miserable. Travelers are miserable. But throw down some jams when people least expect it, and watch the vibe change! I was groovin’ all the way through the terminal.
Finally, there’s a Marriot at the airport–I absolutely love when there is a hotel connected to the airport. Makes is easy to take a nap on a long layover.
Give me some funky tunes and a bed, and I am set. Great airport!
