Airports, Seaports, Train stations (Website Background): Nassau, the Bahamas

The website’s background is currently a photo of one of the terminals of Lynden Pindling International Airport in the Bahamas, one of the airports I will be visiting on my travels. Its International Air Transport Aviation (IATA) airport identifier is NAS (this shows up on your ticket itinerary or when searching for tickets at booking sites online). In 2006, the airport dropped the country’s capital city from its name: Nassau International Airport and acquired that of the first Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, The Rt. Hon. Sir Lynden Pindling. With the name change came a world-class upgrade, especially to the international terminal as pictured in the gallery. It is currently the largest airport and international gateway in the Bahamas.

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).
