What's the best way to kill downtime at an airport?
I used to have to fly every other month for work, and over the course of three years I found myself doing some weird things. I listened audio books, read books, magazines and so on, timed myself walking to and from specific points, guessed people's weights, counted shoe types and different types of shirts, and a whole laundry list of weird things. I don't really travel now, but I was hoping people could offer some of the best, or at least unique, ways to kill airport downtime.
I usually read or browse the internet on my laptop. If I'm there for a really long time I might watch a movie on my laptop.
If you are traveling on the same airline, join one of the airline clubs - its the best investment its great if you have long layovers. - its quiet, has snacks and drinks and you can totally relax away from the noisy masses. you can work, read do whatever, free internet.
When I would fly (before having kids), I always brought books to read. I spent the time either reading or people watching. I can stay pretty entertained just taking in everything going on around me.
Now that I have kids, I spend my time being the entertainer. I have to have tons of tricks in my bag to keep them busy and happy.
