Chill out at San Diego International Airport

When traveling, you sometimes just need a moment – and a place – where you can be quiet, gather your thoughts, reflect and, if that’s your thing, pray.

Impossible at a busy airport?

Not always.

If you look around you’ll find that many airports have small chapels or meditation rooms that will not only fit the bill, but are really lovely spaces.

San Diego International Airport is the latest airport to create a meditation room for travelers and it’s an artist-designed beauty:

Created by Seattle-based artist Norie Sato, The Spirit of Silence is post-security in Terminal 2 and takes inspiration “from the undefinable and changing edge between water and sky, clear and opaque, organic and built.”
