How to Wipe-out Time in the Airport?
Travelling Solo becomes hardcore when you don’t have anyone to talk too.
The Airport is among the areas where everyone seems in a hurry and restricted to themselves.
In that case, Often, we end up counting the number of check-in counters inside the Airport, including myself as well.
I know you have started imagining now 💭.
Then, I figured out some points.
Let’s go straight away onto it.
1. Reading the Unread Emails
Yes, those unread emails which we majorly ignore on our notifications. Sometimes these unread emails turn out to be important.
In my case, the promotions tab turned out to be important. I saw many various emails from websites that I had subscribed to for the knowledge and was ignoring like hell.
And received some email vouchers too 😜.
Not specifically the promotions and social tabs but also the Inbox tab.
When we are in a meeting and an email pops up and usually, we end up clearing our notifications tab. We left with a blank mind after some time.
i.e. Reading unread emails is a useful thing to spend time in the airport.
It’s more like, if we want to pass time at the airport then why not spend doing something useful rather than wasting time at all.
2. Buy a remembrance memory of that particular city
We all know that memory cannot be bought, but are made.
In this case, buying a physical product that you can feel forever is the way to go. It could be anything special about that city where you have traveled.
Often, Airports have particular shops that have a specific product or famous product or commodity of that city.
For e.x: – Goa Airport has Goan famous Cashews listed in the shops to sell.
That’s what I was referring to a memory to buy. It could be a showpiece item too.
What happens is, when we see that product or showpiece. Our memory automatically refreshes and brings joy to our faces.
On the other way, this could also act as shopping to spend time at the airport.
3. Writing your memories
Sometimes memories kill us from inside, but what to do. It’s the only thing we all are busy making in our lives.
Am ‘I Sounded a bit more philosophical?
Let’s get back to our madness.
Write it anywhere, in a diary, on your phone or even on your clothes. No, I am not joking with the clothes apart.
Just be different.
If you ask me, I write pointwise on my phone every day in the note section. Yes, that note section in our phone which often finds itself useless as compared to the social media apps.
So jealous notes section might me now.
You can write your memories while waiting for a connecting flight or while having a layover at the Airport.
This would be the utmost best thing to wipe out the time at the Airport if someone asks me.
Let me tell you something, during my visit to Goa. I had arrived at the Goa International Airport 3 hrs before the departure.
I end up finishing and giving the final touch to the article, Dudhsagar falls. Yes, 60% of the work has been done in the Airport and rests on bits and pieces at different places. The idea and foundation of this article were also laid there.
Apart from 3hrs arriving early at the airport, the flight turned out to be 40 mins late.
i.e. 3:40 mins of survival time in the Airport. Mission accomplished while spending time doing useful things.
This section will make your 3 hrs time spent at ease.
4. Print your Boarding Pass
I will sound a bit taken for granted here.
But yes, that feeling of putting your hands on your boarding pass is special. I had given myself this opportunity of feeling like never before.
Someone, who just used too withholding bus tickets somehow puts his hand on the boarding pass is a moment of delight. You will agree if you ever did.
Also, if you are the first time in the Airport. Printing your Boarding pass would be a unique experience in your air travel journey.
