girl friends

In my stopover in Seoul, my eyes were caught by the two people waiting at the terminal for the flight to Los Angeles. I couldn't help but smile at the idea of these two traveling folks. I secretly took a picture of them when I got the change so that when I look back, I would remember that I want to be like them.

They must have been bored waiting for their flight. But at the airport, these two elderly women walk as fast as the younger people do. I wonder if they were relatives or old buddies. They seem to be physically healthy and well able to travel. They can take care of themselves (life insurance lead need not worry about them), and I love the idea of their independence. When I get to be a grandmother, I hope I can still physically travel. And traveling with girl friends isn't such a bad idea. :)

I particularly like the lady in brown. She looks cool in that hat!

uy, i remember two old ladies during our europe trip. kami ni angeli were complaining of having to lug our bags around when we saw two eldrerly ladies na bitbit bitbit ang kanilang luggage! ayun, para kaming binuhusan ng malamig na tubig!

these old people are sometimes more "ready" for travel than younger people are!

yup, it's amazing what old people can do nowadays - thanks to modern health care.. nevertheless i prefer traveling while young ;) or at least younger than retirement age.. i'm too lazy i don't know how fit I could be when i'm older ;)

goodluck on your studies. not really easy while working full time!
