We landed in Madrid-Barajas airport more than 24 hours after I left my house in Manila. I should be tired and sleepy but when I saw the jaw dropping airport I was instantly invigorated.
Even the bridge-way from the airplane was beautiful.
I liked the ceiling made of wood slats. It added warmth yet it was very modern. I preferred it much more to the all steel airports of Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.
I won’t even comment on the airports of the Philippines. Dare I dream to see something even a tenth of this with Philippine Airlines’ future new airport?
No yucky fluorescent lighting here just indirect reflective lights.
There were lots of shopping and dining options.
The huge airport had many buildings and gates that were far so we had to take a train to go claim Rochelle’s luggage.
The cubicles’ doors and partitions were all frosted glass.
You can take the Metro to the city from the airport. We had to meet with my cousin Sharon who arrived from DC and was in another terminal so we took a free bus that dropped passengers to one of five terminals. As I said the airport was huge!!!
