The welcome banner vending machine

_MG_5901.jpg

In our very long, slightly frantic, bucket list, we're still waiting to get off a plane and find someone waiting for us in the arrivals lounge, holding a huge welcome banner.

It's something that's arguably more realistic than some of the other items on there (surviving a plane crash, winning a fight with a bear etc) yet still somehow out of reach.

Well, this might make it a lot easier.

In Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, a machine has just been fitted which gives waiting relatives/friends/stalkers the chance to print out a personalised banner to welcome people back.

While the choice of fonts, themes and backgrounds do look a bit mid-90s clip-art, we'd still happily arrive to one of these bad boys any day. Ideally after we'd just survived a plane crash but we'll take what we can get.
