It seems like all you do is wait at the airport. Waiting to board the plane, waiting to take off, waiting to land, waiting for luggage, waiting to get through customs, waiting to be picked up….
As much as I hate waiting to board a flight, I enjoy the hustle and bustle of the airport. Watching the people coming and going. Looking at the schedule of the arrivals and the departures. Watching planes take off and landing. The airport is constantly a busy place. At the same time, the airport can be a boring place if you have a couple of hours or more to wait for your connecting flight. Two hours can be a long time to wait in an airport. Unfortunately, it’s not enough time to go outside the airport and explore the city if it’s somewhere you’ve never visited before.
The few airports I have been to and with almost all airports in general, it seems like there is nothing to do but eat, drink and shop. On vacation, it seems all I ever did was eat, drink (mostly water, because it was quite hot in Greece and I sweat profusely) and explore, which in my opinion way better than just shopping.
