Warning: this hypothesis will not hold up in any ‘debate’ with the fairer sex, so you know, please don’t quote me, but…. air travel is a little bit like child birth, in that memory becomes highly selective when it comes to repeat suffering. For example, being 6 foot plus and never having the budget to fly long distance in anything except cattle class means I just have to forget the pain of cramped conditions & having your knees constantly hitting the seat in front. Which means discovering it all over again!
Short term its ok, but 12+ hours and it can do your head in… The only solution I have found is occupying a window seat & taking a lot of photos (which is about where the child birth comparison ceases to be viable, if it ever was…)
The colour shift between those two photos is massive, but when we started to descend through the clouds to KIX (Kansai International Airport) the depth of field changed faster than my perception could cope!
Very happy to be back on terra firma!
