|The sign that hooked me in.|
The day had come for me to depart. First flight: Muscat to Abu Dhabi, 5am. I boarded the plane, sat down, and the next thing I remembered was the flight attendant waking me up to inform me that we were about to land in Abu Dhabi. I had no idea that the plane had even taken off! I typically don't get restful sleep on planes, but this was an exception. I was thankful for the hour long rest.
Groggily, I deplaned and made my way through the sparkling, gleaming Terminal 1 of Abu Dhabi International Airport. As I was approaching the gate for my connecting flight to Washington D.C., I noticed a sign to my right that had the word, "Sleep" in it and something futuristic close to it, an enclosed somewhat oblong capsule. Something one might see on the Starship Enterprise or Millennium Falcon. I got closer and I saw the sign, it was an area that contained sleep pods.
I signed up for a pod and I was quickly taken to one. I entered the pod and I noticed that it had a compartment to accommodate luggage and was long enough to accommodate someone who is 6'2. If one is claustrophobic I would not encourage using the pod.
The Sleep Pod. The next time you are somewhere that has one, check it out, it works!
