    Aww cmon guys...not a single Middle Eastern, Asian or Oceanic airport listed.......my personal favourite of all time is Lord Howe Island where I had to do the customs check in the middle of a paddock.....magnificent views, the terminal was too small to house the 10 passengers.......:laugh:

    What about the three Kazakhstan airports I listed? None would be my favorite airport, although certainly interesting, and certainly in that Middle Eastern or Asian category.

    Si, pero that's including the dialects. There are only 150 languages. But only one matters if you live down here, amigo.

    I concur about Miami. Atlanta is pretty bizarre as well.

    I've flown into Cancun, Mexico and one other that I can't remember right off the top of my head. Been to other foreign airports.

    While MIA can be a bit daunting if you are not too familiar with it (or if the language issue bothers you), it is really a very easy airport to get around in. I much prefer to fly in/out of MIA than Ft. Lauderdale. Also, it's much easier than other large airports -- LAX, ATL, ORD, BOS, JFK, etc.

    My favorite foreign airport is Vancouver.

    No problem, When we went, many people back home wanted to tell us how things in Europe would be. Many also asked how Russia was (never been there), and one person emailed and asked for a picture of the Kremlin.

    Our interpreter/guide was in the internet cafe when I got that email so I showed him. He said, "The Kremlin? That's 8 hours away...by air!"

    Another funny one we hear is when people say, "I can never remember all those little countries over there." After all, Kazakhstan is only the fourth largest country by land area.
