A Funny Thing Happened While Waiting for the Train

Billboard advertisement still exists in most train stations – I suppose because those of us waiting to embark, have ample time to see the ad, and sometimes during delays and such, even glance at it enough times to remember the product or the message, sending you to click buy or react emoji via the luxury of your smart phone.

A few days ago, I noticed, even fixated on a number of billboard ads by Lufthansa while waiting for my commuter train to screech to a stop at Montgomery Street station in San Francisco.  Since the announcement overhead stated the norm these days for our ultra-busy city, (delays upon delays), I decided to pace the platform and read every single billboard, eventually jotting down all the questions posed by the airline aiming to entice potential travelers or those longing to plan a trip-somewhere, in this case, destinations where Lufthansa flies.  And then of course, I decided to answer the questions-out loud-right here:

  • Is somewhere else always the right place? 
    • It can be  – when one is in need of an escape from their norm.
  • Where in the world would you pause time? 
    • The rain forests and anywhere where there is no threat to wildlife.
  • Can you lose yourself while finding yourself? 
    • Indeed you can while walking the cobblestone streets of Rome and everywhere in the world rich with history. Nature walks, and those along a beach, watching the sun rise, and set, even the lavender fields or vineyards – losing yourself is the best way of finding yourself.
  • What moments will you still remember in twenty years? 
  • What language makes the world sound most beautiful?
    • French – always – most anywhere you go, if you pay close attention, the language captures attention.
  • Is it okay to refer to the world as a blue planet? 
  • Have you ever been somewhere first? 
    • If firsts count as the first in line at a museum, or a historical site, or on a train, ferry and an amusement park entrance – then yes, I am that gal, always first in line.
  • How much of who you are is where you’ve been? 
  • When does a diary become a best seller?
    • When it is based on true-life experiences and of course if you have a group of solid influencers in your corner ;).

Would love to hear your answer to these questions…do share.
