When we arrived at a Bangkok airport on the way TO Europe, there were orchids everywhere. I thought, “I’ll sketch some at the hotel.” None, at the hotel. So next morning, after making our way to the lounge (seems like 3km – Bangkok’s new airport is huge) we found breakfast, but no orchids.
On our way back to Australia, we were leaving with Qantas, not Finnair. Qantas has its own lounge – a very nice lounge indeed. White orchids in several places. I went to one of the displays, pulled up a chair and sketched them.
But all too soon it was time to board the flight and be on our way home.
