Sometimes long layovers are inescapable, meaning you could be stuck at the airport for hours, or days, or in a very rare case, YEARS (*Dont worry, that was a very rare fluke). But savvy travelers know that there are fun, inexpensive ways to entertain themselves between flights. Here are 6 Ways to enjoy an airport layover. 

  • Work Out. If you’re not shy about folding into downward dog in public, pack a yoga mat and work on your positions at the airport. A few minutes of deep breathing and stretching is a fantastic way to get your blood flowing after a flight.
  • Play a Game. Pack one or two board games in your carry-on and get your travel companion or a friendly stranger waiting in your terminal to join in on the fun. A deck of cards is in my carry on bag all the time just for such a outcome! 
  • Read, write, or watch. This could be a great time to catch up on your newest book or take a time to update your blog. If you brought your computer, catch up on some recent shows or watch a movie. Find a nice quiet corner and get comfy for a while.
  • Go exploring! Most international terminals are vast and have many hidden gems you can find, like indoor pools, nap rooms, massage parlors and more!
  • Again, if you are not shy, strike up a conversation with another passenger that is in layover.  You both have so much in common, you both are stuck here.. so make a comment about it then ask them if they have any good jokes or story’s to past the time!
  • Juggling. I know, most people dont carry juggling balls with them when they travel.. I do.. hahaha.. its a fun thing that gets some weird looks.  But that is my hobby, if you have a portable hobby that packs small, bring it and use this as a forced hobby time!
