    How many airports have you been to?

    And which one was the best one?

    I have visited:
    Brisbane (international and domestic airports)
    Melbourne (domestic)
    Auckland (international)
    Gold Coast (mainly domestic)
    Hamilton

    The best? Probably Melbourne's as it didn't take me very long to get to and from my plane.

    Flying early in the morning around 6am isn't a good idea out of Brisbane domestic airport.

    - Baroda (we've only domestic here)
    - Ahmedabad (domestic and international)
    - Bombay (domestic and international)
    - London (Heathrow and Gatwick both)
    - Atlanta
    - Chicago
    - New York (JFK and Newark)

    I haven't been to a single airport in Europe (minus UK), as I travelled the entire region by bus and train.

    I have only been to:

    Cairns (Domestic/International)
    Perth (Domestic)

    And I didn't like Cairns much. Its a fair hike from the plane to the terminal (on arrival), plus the walk wasnt too exciting - pathway is just concrete and steel.
    eep.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
