How to Enjoy Your Time at the Airport

Occasionally, we have to stay at the airport more time than we want. Being stuck there because of connections, delays, etc is normal, but you can make your time fruitful in place of getting upset while you wait for your flight.

1.Catch up on your e-mails 

Is your mailbox full, and you don't have time to read your emails? So, this is the perfect moment to check and reply to them.

2. Read a book

Bring a book along with you during a trip is very useful. Choose a nice place at the airport, and read your book calmly, the time will pass fast. 

3. Watch movies and series 

Not all airports provide free Wi-Fi with longer-lasting connections, therefore download some series and movies and have fun. Just be careful not to get so amused and lose your flight. 

4. Meet new people

There could be more people like you waiting for a flight, why not saying a "hello"? Ok, some people want to stay quiet and are not in the mood to have a chat. However, you never know when you'll meet an interesting person or even increase your network.

5. Eat local food

If you are at the airport only because of a connection and you are not going to visit the country where you are, this is a chance to try some local food. Enjoy the moment and make it part of your trip.

6. Observe

Sit and just observe the things and people around you, or sit beside the window and watch the planes take off and land. Sometimes, simple actions can be fun.

7. Sleep

You can rest and sleep. Find a comfortable chair and relax. Just be careful with your belongings and don't forget to set the alarm clock, waking up only some minutes before the flight can not be a good idea. 

8. Visit the city where you are

If you are waiting for your connection and have a lot of time at the airport, at least five hours, you can go sightseeing. Many airports offer free tours or have easy access to public transportation. It can be an opportunity to visit a new place while you are traveling.

10. Check your trip plans

Enjoy the time to check all the information about your trip, your itinerary, money, reservations, etc. Look for places to visit, restaurants and nice things to do at your destination. 

Are you going to enjoy your free time at the airport by organizing your trip information? Tripsy App is the best travel planner to help you with this.

You can organize all the steps of your trip easily, receive flight alerts and updates, access exclusive itineraries, store documents and photos, customize your itinerary and share them with anyone you want to.

How to Enjoy Your Trip More in 20 Steps

Some little actions can make you enjoy your trip more and also spend less time with unnecessary situations.

1. Be flexible

Sometimes going to a restaurant, museums, etc. that you have not planned can be amazing. You don't have to follow exactly every single detail of your itinerary. One of the best parts of traveling is getting surprised with good things.

2. Don't take photos all the time

I know you want to photograph all the nice things you see during your trip, but while you take hundreds of photos many things can happen around, you will lose them.

Take photos, it's important, but don't forget to enjoy the trip!

3. Solo travel is a good choice

Traveling with friends or family is very nice, sharing the moments and laughing together is priceless, however, traveling alone is pleasant too, it can be a self-discovery, you get confidence by doing on your own, you can change plans easily, besides, you can meet new people.

Don't miss a trip because you are alone, allow yourself.

4. Get information about the destination before going

Before traveling to a new country or city getting some information about it is very useful. Learning a little about the culture, religion, language and history of the place can make you understand better what you are going to see and experience.

5. Wake up early

Waking up early avoid crowds and long lines on the main attractions. Not to mention, it is a good time to take photos due to the light. So get up early during the trip and make it fruitful.

6. Don't get stressed out

Things can go wrong all the time, while you're traveling too. Don't waste time getting stressed out because something got out control or didn't happen the way you want, be calm, take a look around, breath and keep enjoying every moment of your trip, you will laugh about the situation later.

7. Listen to the sounds of the place

Feel the place where you are by listening to its sounds. The noise of the car traffic, the song of the birds, etc. represent a lot about a city. So avoid using earphones while you walk through a new place.

8. Look around you

Frequently we are so focused on finding a specific restaurant or store that we do not realize the life around us. Pay attention to the colors, the buildings, the daily life of the locals, to the smells, etc. observing small details make your experience deep.

9. Slow down

Don't schedule hundreds of activities if you don't have enough time. It's almost impossible visiting everything you want in just some days. Don't worry, go to the same destination again and do everything is missing on your itinerary.

10. Walk a lot

Walking is the best way to get to know a city and feel it better. You can observe things that you are not able to pay attention to when you are in a car, on a bus, or, of course, on a subway.

11. Get an offline map

Getting an offline map is necessary while traveling, if your internet connection stop working, you won't get lost. 

12. Get lost cannot be a problem

Don't get mad if you get lost, this is part of the trip, so enjoy watching the local life and visiting parts of the city you wouldn't know if you followed only your itinerary. 

13. Learn some phrases in the local language

It's not necessary being fluent in the language of each country you are going to visit, but learning basic foreign words not only makes communication easier but also shows you are a kind person.

14. Try the local food

Eating local food is not the cheapest option sometimes, but it's a great way to have a complete experience while traveling.

15. Be open-minded

Don't judge other cultures, religions, lifestyles, you don't have to agree with them, but 

you must respect, you can learn with the differences. Remember you are a visitor.

16. Watch out for your backpack and pockets 

While traveling we tend to relax and don't worry much about somethings, so when you're among crowds, especially in tourist areas, look around you, put your backpack in front of you and avoid keeping your belongings in the back pockets, pickpockets can enjoy a moment you are inattentive and get your things.

17. Dress appropriately 

In some countries, especially in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, there is a specific dress code, so wearing short and tight clothes can be offensive. Besides, to visit some temples and churches should cover most of your skin. Avoid uncomfortable situations during your trip by dressing conservatively, if it's necessary, and everything is going to be ok. 

18. Visit unusual spots

Even though visiting the most famous spots is very nice and part of a trip, exploring new areas allows you to live different experiences and see non-touristy parts of a city, you are going to feel it the way it is.

19. All destinations are awesome

It's possible having fun at any destination you go to, it only depends on you, it doesn't matter if it is an international or national trip. If you face any opportunity to travel as an incredible possibility to learn and visit new things, all your trips will be interesting. 

20. Don't do/visit things you don't like

It's not because everybody is visiting the latest sculpture exhibition that you should visit it, use your time to go to spots that are nice for you. Occasionally, you end up doing activities that are not your cup of tea only due to people's influences. Your trip is yours, do what you like.

Choosing your next travel destination

Choosing your next travel destination can be hard. Enjoy your next vacation with this tips from Tripsy.

You are on vacation and don't know what is the best destination to travel. Don't worry, it is a common situation, with many amazing places around the world choosing the best one is not so easy. Check out the following tips and enjoy your next destination:

1. What's your budget?

Based on your budget, you can choose a far or close destination, if you are going to stay in a simple or luxury hotel, the duration of the trip, etc.

You also should consider currency exchange rates, check how much money are you going to spend with attractions, etc.

2. How much time can you spend traveling?

If you have just a few days, traveling to a distant place can be fruitless. The hours you're going to be flying, the adaptation to the time zone change, etc. can make your trip tiresome.

Sometimes, we only think about traveling to other countries, we don't realize the abundance of nice destinations that are around us.

3. Who are you going to travel with?

Are you going to travel solo or with friends? Is it a romantic trip or a family one? 

All these questions can help you decide what's the best option. 

If you are traveling with children or elderly, an adventurous trip with hiking and trekking it's not a good idea. Everyone should be happy with the travel destination when traveling in a group, so get all the travelers involved in the decision-making process, so the trip can be great from the beginning to the end.

4. What do you like?

Do you prefer hot or cold weather? Urban or natural places? Modern or historic cities? Practicing sports or going to museums?

Going to Europe during winter is not going to be nice if you can't stand cold temperatures. The same way, a cultural trip is not a smart choice if you prefer to swim or go hiking in the woods. Your destination must be a place where you will feel good.

Follow your preferences is the key to have an awesome trip.

5. Special events

Keep in mind that special dates such as Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, New Year's Eve in New York, etc. can make the prices of flights and accommodation increase. Not to mention that crowds can be annoying and make you waste time in lines.

Choosing another date or destination is a good idea.

6. Follow the deals

A place that you've never thought traveling to can be your next destination. Be open-minded, and a cheap flight can decide where you are going on your vacation.

7. Find inspiration for your trip

Take a look at Pinterest, Instagram, travel blogs, magazines, and also talk to your friends and family. 

A stunning photo or a conversation with someone can give you different ideas of destinations.

After you have chosen your destination, it's time to plan your trip using Tripsy App. Organize all your trips in only one place, share it with friends and family, receive flight alerts, also access exclusive itineraries among other amazing features.

Introducing Tripsy

We’re incredibly excited to launch Tripsy, a new way to organize your travels on your iPhone and iPad.

Tripsy came from a need of us having all travel information in one place: flights, hotels, calendar, museums, concert tickets, etc. The usual way to travel around is to carry all the information inside many different applications: emails, airline apps, hotels apps, wallet, files, notes and printing some important tickets. We think we can do better.

We want to offer you a way to save all your trip itinerary with as many details as you want to add to any activity, and on top of that, offer you easy ways to navigate in your travel experiences, such as maps integrations, files and flight alerts. Oh, and we also want you to be able to share this information with others easily, in the next versions of Tripsy you can expect to have this feature.

🔒 Privacy — your data is yours!

Sending the data to our cloud is up to you. You can choose if you want to sync all the data to have a backup and sync between different devices, or use only an offline copy on your device (backed up with your iCloud backup).

If you choose to use our cloud, all the information you input is yours. We’re not selling any of this data to anyone or want to use it to sell any product in the future. We don’t make money with your info, and we’ll never do that. But syncing your activities with us will give you some advantages in the future that you may want: we’ll be able to alert you on flight changes, automatically include bookings from emails and documents that you may want to include in your account, view the same information of your trip itinerary in multiple devices and in the future you will be able to have other collaborators in your trip itinerary as well.

Privacy is something that we deeply care about; it’s one of our core values. You can check our Privacy Policy in this link: tripsy.app/policy.

🌟 Premium: take more advantage of Tripsy

In order to have a sustainable business, Tripsy offers a Premium plan to everyone that travels or anyone that wants to support us in order to maintain the application running and getting updated.

For that, Premium users can create unlimited trips (Free users can only create one), have access to exclusive features in the future, unlimited access to all of our travel plans (explained below), and also sync your data between devices.

📱 Travel plans from humans — From us to you

For Premium users we offer travels plans that our team created. They are completely created by us, from our own experiences and we believe you’re going to love it. As a Premium user, you can copy one of our trip plans and edit as you prefer, making the best use of it! We currently offer trip plans to Rome (5 days), Santiago (5 days), New York (4 days), Paris (4 days), Amsterdam (3 days) and more to come.
