The Airports

I didn't want to wear any jewellery at the airport in case i had to take it off for the scanner (does silver make the machine go off) and then forget it, I always stress that I will lose something, and almost lost my mobile... on the plane! 

So instead of pictures of beads, how about a couple from the runway:

My plane from Heathrow to Calgary
Calgary airport which is undergoing a redevelopment but has these fun / weird carousel displays and massive GE sponsorship, which tickled me, as Tristan works for GE in Bristol.

They seem to really like horses in Calgary, there were a few sculptures of them around the airport (I had 3 hours to wander around!). the second is like a traditional stone sculpture made by the First Nation people and the last is a moose made out of bags

And finally Vancouver:


Vancouver is big on Canadian heritage and has lots of iconography in the airport.

Let’s not forget my first TIM HORTONS!!! (of this trip)

Not all of these were mine!

  1. You probably could have worn your leather bracelet. Think it would have been okay. It depends on how sensitive they have the machines set to. Although I did have to take off a gold bangle once. It was a thicker bangle, so perhaps. But in general I haven't needed to take off jewelry (I tend to wear fairly thin ones). Can't speak for TB since I haven't traveled since starting the european bracelets. :) That last picture makes me wish for one while I'm stuck at my desk here at work. lol
