When I hear the word 'layover' all I can think about is long waits at airports, the worry whether or not I am going to make my connection flight, bad overpriced airport food, or my constant worry of finding a good seat next to the departure gate that has a power outlet next to it. Because well, how else would I survive a 3-hour layover if not for the help of my electronic gadgets?
But that is not all a layover is. By definition, a layover is simple a period of rest or waiting before a further stage in a journey. That journey could be you working towards your college degree, or you starting a summer job to get a car, or the mighty and gruesome journey of finding yourself.
I am currently at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. Why am I here you may ask. Well I have a 4-hour layover, my next flight is back home to Miami, FL. Now 4 hours is a pretty long time for a layover, however, I'm not going to cry or whine about it. Instead of being a complaining little girl I'm using this time wisely and write this article. You'd be surprised how much you can get done in 4-hour hours.
People dread layovers but truthfully, there is nothing wrong with a short break during a journey. Especially if that journey really never ends.
