I can think of a million things that I would rather do before having a layover (including the dentist!). When I’m traveling, like I’m sure the rest of the people on the planet, I just want to get to where I’m going already!
When I was meeting my friends in India, I discovered I had a 12 hour layover in London. I had never been and was in no way staying in the Heathrow airport for 12 hours. So I did some research and found out they offer day tour with direct pick up and drop off from the airports! It was expensive but SO worth it. A private driver/tour guide picked me up and he was the best. He asked me what I wanted to see, showed me places off the beaten path (like where the Beatles lived when they hit it big), drove me anywhere I wanted, took pictures of me in front of places like Buckingham Palace and even took me Harrods for time to shop and eat lunch. When it was done, I went back to Heathrow and went on with my journey. One of my most favorite memories ever!
Anyway, if the dreaded layover is unavoidable with the upcoming holiday season or any time you’re traveling to hopefully magical places, here are some others chic and fun ways to pass the time.
Happy and safe traveling!
