Great travel tips … 10 tips on how to make time to fly while stuck at the airport …
Today's airline passengers face countless offers of delays and long stops.
This vacuum is not always caused by airlines in time. New regulations require
passengers will be at the airport up to 2-3 hours earlier. Then there are long breaks,
and of course delayed flights.
I know firsthand; It's frustrating and boring and often comes to mind
how to spend those boring, wasted hours at an unknown airport. My wife and I are often
fly to Texas from the Virgin Islands and have fallen victim to this travel dilemma …
so we have found something according to necessity, some inventive ways to pass the time you are
stuck at the airport with seemingly nothing to do.
Here are ten tips to help make time pass:

Instead of thinking about how much you hate the airport, you're thinking about having fun
interesting ways to pass time, ie change mental state. Learn
like an airport and turn it into a “friend”.
2. People watching can literally eat a lot of time. Watch different cultures,
listen to languages, their gestures and attitudes. See if you can interpret
What are they talking about. Grab a cup of coffee or a bottle of water and spend it
For some interesting time watching how couples, groups and different people
interact. It is fun!
3. Do you have your computer with you? Go online. Some airports offer free Wi-Fi
while others may charge. Ten – Twenty spent plug-ins are great

In addition, you can always deploy your hat on productivity and complete some work that is
still hanging out.
4. When was the last time you sent someone a postcard? Virtually everyone

sculptors and artists. I had a video camera with me and spent an hour
to record these unique works of art. Explore the airport where you are …

the airport that stuck must offer
7. We are always looking for something that might pass. Play the game, work and
crossword, try hand on sudoku. If your family is with you,
Try a game like Yahtzee or Scrabble. Take out the cell phone and do it
best to figure out one of the games that were placed just for a certain situation
like this. This will certainly speed up time.

10.Check kiosks and bookstores. Read, browse newspapers, magazines
and books. See a list of the top ten bestsellers. Buy a book and take it
back to your gate. Do it soon when there is very little traffic and
it's still nice and quiet, working for me. You should get a good hour
everything for yourself.
