Tensions were high on the plane this particular day. We were trying to leave the bustling city of New York City and get back to Nashville, TN. Being on a smaller plane we could not get clearance to take off …
Its been many years since our paths crossed at Changi airport, Singapore, in March 2005. I first noticed you out side the departure lounge sitting cross legged on the floor, watching intently every thing that was going on around you. …
It’s been more than 11 years ago, but I still recall this Armenian college student I met at Sheremetyevo Airport. I was a tourist from Tokyo visiting Armenia, and he was flying from Newark to Sheremetyevo to Zvartnots. It was a long wait before the departure, so we naturally started to talk to kill time. During the conversation, I found out that he was majoring in Tourism and English, coming home to complete his school in Yerevan after spending 1+1/2 years in Cape Cod and got all his luggage stolen at Newark. He helped me basically in everything from finding my luggage to getting my Armenian visa at Zvarnots where none of the staff spoke English. I still wonder how he’s doing quite often, and would like to say thanks. It’s one of my biggest regrets that I didn’t ask for his email address or last name. All I know is his first name which is quite common, so it doesn’t help much.
Flying overnight from Ottawa to London Heathrow we met at the baggage reclaim. You were with a friend. I was travelling alone. I have never felt more strongly for anyone before or since. I know we never spoke but I …
I ( Francis ) was working on a pipelaying vessel in the Norwegian Waters of the North Sea. Denise had been staying in London for 3 days as part of a package tour with 8 other Brasillian ladies, and was on her way to the Far East ( Singapore, Thailand and Bali ). I was on my way back home to Brisbane Australia.
There was a mix up at her check in.
She ended up sitting between me and another guy.
As soon as I saw her there was immediate eye contact.
I offered her help with her baggage and started up conversation about chinese horoscopes – I don’t why – but that was the first subject of many that we disceted .
We were in economy and after the meal was served we kept drinking those little bottles of red wine – talking, laughing, talking, talking.
I was astounded to meet a caucasion Brasilian from Sao Paulo – that I learned was one of the biggest cities in the world.
Nobody outside of Latin America knew anything about Sao Paulo in 1998.
We kept on talking and I cheekily asked her if she had ever kissed an Australian guy before.
She looked a little shocked at the verdacity of the question and said excuse me.
I let it go and after another 2 hours or so I asked her again – hve you ever kissed an Australian guy before?
She put her hand around my neck and drew my head closer to hers – just before our lips met each others she stopped and looked me straight in the eye and said “I am your angel “.
I was hers from hello basically, I just melted and we’ve been together ever since.
I moved to Sao Paulo in 1999, we have one son 10 years old and another special child with cerebral palsy who has just turned 6 years.
Our lives are full of fun and never boring, we usually end each day with a laugh.
