Airports, Seaports, Train stations (Website Background): Charlotte Douglas, NC

One of the most exciting places to visit while traveling is usually the first place you leave and the first place you arrive at at both the start and end of the trip. Modern airports, seaports, and train stations are designed to mesmerize and to entertain visitors. They do this not only to keep visitors occupied, but to make sure that they spend their last dime before leaving the host country. The website’s background is currently a photo of one of the terminals of Charlotte Douglas Airport in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the airports I will be visiting on my travels. Its International Air Transport Aviation (IATA) airport identifier is CLT (this shows up on your ticket itinerary or when searching for tickets at booking sites online).
