/// 6 Ways to Kill Time at Airports
Airports are like second homes to vagabonds but just like home, there can be downtime with too much time. These are the ways to deal with it. [img]
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.-Leonardo da Vinci
Explore & Exercise
Vagabonding is about exploring the world, so explore the airport like it’s a new city as they tend to be massive with plenty of things to see and do. All the while you can get a tireless but effective workout.
Sleep & Rest
Airports are designed to be “sleepable” and rest friendly. While you may not find the most pleasant sleep, its perfectly normal and accepted to sleep while you wait for your flight. No better way to kill time.
Gadgets & Books
Get your iPad, laptop, smartphone or book out and get your read, browse, game or work on. You’d be surprised at how peaceful and suitable it can be for those activities at airports.
Eat & Drink
Food (even good food) is easy to come by at airports so starving shouldn’t be an issue, day or night. Bars and pubs are also common and an excellent way to kill time at airports.
Socialize & Mingle
International airports are full of other travelers from all parts of the world so meeting foreigners and making friends could make your time at the airport fly by – you may even find romance.
Shop & Browse
Airports are like shopping malls full of well known brands and sometimes shops with decent souvenirs relevant to the country, duty-free. However, merely window shopping while waiting to board can be a great time killer.
With a never ending wait time at an airport, it can be a daunting experience but keeping yourself occupied with these 6 ways (and many other activities) can make it pleasant and make time move fast.
