Every frequent traveller fears it: Long layovers and flight delays! There are few things as boring as being stuck at the airport waiting for a plane. You can’t leave the airport, and you have nothing to do. So, you need to get creative to keep yourself entertained.
Check out our 8 ways to beat airport boredom
1 Go shopping: Don’t question whether you are actually saving money on purchases of duty free goods. Just pretend your credit card has no limit (or borrow your boyfriend’s credit card).
2 Sing and dance like nobody is watching: Take on your headphones, select your favourite playlist and go wild. This might even be a way to refinance your airport shopping excess. Just pass your hat around to collect money.
3 Eat as much as you can: Check out the food court and go for the unhealthiest junk food you can possibly find. Don’t count calories. Don’t forget to order dessert. Bikini bodies are overrated anyways.
4 People-watch: This actually means checking to see if there are any attractive people around. As soon as you spot a hot guy/chic, make yourself believe that you’re the most magnetic person in the whole airport and try a stupid pick up line (such as “Do I know you? Cause you look a lot like my next girlfriend/boyfriend”).
5 Create a Facebook Story: We all agree that Facebook Stories is the most annoying social media feature ever. You never used it? Now it’s the perfect time to give it a try and annoy your friends by showing how “exciting” it is to wait at the airport.
