In December last year (2011), I had two very short business trips each involving a stay at an airport hotel – here is the scenery or the lack thereof at my hotels.

The first was in Amsterdam and our conference host chose this Park Plaza as a venue. Although it is supposed to be an airport hotel, it is actually about half way between Schiphol airport and the city of Amsterdam. There is a business park next to the hotel with a maze of canals. Sue joined me after the conference and we stayed in central Amsterdam (See earlier post).

Views from my top floor room window.

The Netherlands is so flat.

My second trip took me to Canada the following week and I transited in Toronto with an overnight stay.

Views from my 11th floor room window.

I can see the runway but did not hear any plane noise.

What a charming neighborhood!  There must be a conference center nearby. Toronto is also very flat.

I don’t know if it is my point-and-shoot camera lens but I think I can see the Earth’s curvature in a few of the photos!
