The Austrian

Airports are amazing places to sit back and take in one of humanity’s simplest and at the same time most complex endeavors, travel.

Once a man simply grabbed his hat, his coat, a bag of belongings then walked out the door and off down some road or path. Now there are machines, technology, customs, merchandising, queues and complex infrastructure.

The things that will never change are people and their stories.

The Austrian could have lived in Vienna a century ago but his story may not have been very different from today.
