Check inn and re-check your schedule

Once you get confirmation from airport authority about your flight then locate your boarding gate and terminal and check out how much time is there for doing all formalities.

Sight seeing

If you have long time for your next flight then you can step out from airport and can visit local sightseeing. Ask airport staff for welcome desk so that you can claim your baggage.  Book for mini tour in airport itself, just visit taxi stand and ask them for local sightseeing.

Get freshen up

In mean time you can comb your hair, brush your teeth and wash your face and touch up your makeup.

Make friends and be social

If you are travelling alone then you can talk to the stranger who is seated next to you. Talk to him about his journey and places in his city. You can even update your status in twitter, facebook and instagram and chat with new friends.

Review your photos and organize your mailbox

In busy time we don’t have time to clean our mail box, we just check mail and leave it read right? So in this mean time you can check your mail and delete unwanted mails. Go to your phone and laptop gallery and delete unwanted photos.

Plan your itinerary

Pick your phone and surf online and download google map and traveler guide and check out place you are visiting. It will give you idea of restaurants, shopping mall and café in nearby your destination.


In airport you can find VIP clubs and lounge which you can get for minimal fee. Enjoy the service as they offer plush seats, massage, buffets, wifi and workstation for the one who don’t have there lappy.


In case you don’t understand anything from above then you can get cozy and comfortable seat and just shut your eyes and go to sleep. This is the best thing what my hubby does when he travel alone.
