Tegel aka Otto Lilienthal Airport (TXL) is currently the main airport in Berlin, but it will soon be shut down in favor of the new Berlin-Brandenburg airport that is being built (with much delay) in the area of the Schoenefeld Airport.

There has been some sort of airport in Tegel since 1914. It’s noted for its hexagonal shape. To me the airport is special because every gate has its own security check, which makes catching your flight a lot more relaxed.

On a hazy Wednesday I went to Tegel to pick up my friend Ginger, who is visiting from Brooklyn for Thanksgiving weekend.

I love travel and seeing my friends, so I thought this would be a perfect video idea for this week.

The song is a newer version of Jason Matherne’s “New Adventure” featuring Matt Foskey.
