An Airport in the Netherlands Brings the Outdoors In

In the Netherlands, design is abound, even at the airport. The Schiphol Airport Park includes modern furniture with plant life, live trees, projected butterflies and a cafe with organic and fair trade food and coffee. I've spent more than my fair share of time in airports, and I would have given all the free checked bags and seat upgrades in the world for a place this fun to hang out in between flights, not to mention the fact that you can catch a fresh breeze before going into recycled-air mode.
