Airports as bed

Perhaps you, as one of the many travelers, have already tried several times to stay overnight at an airport. It may also be that you have tried several times to feel exhausted after a long journey, but at the same time do not feel completely comfortable just closing your eyes for a moment in such a busy and crowded place as an airport can once be.

Okay, to begin with, it might sound a bit too cross-border and at times a bit degrading to spend the night at an airport, even if you're tired. In the past, sleeping in an airport was something that only young budget-conscious backpackers took advantage of. This was especially the case with the often long and energy-draining stopovers on the carefully planned round trip or at the very early morning departures, which only the most morning-fresh travelers usually feel completely ready for.

That way, as a backpacker, you could save an overnight stay in a hostel and instead have extra money to live out your many travel dreams. Immediately a pretty good strategy to get more out of your trip.

Gradually, international long-haul flights have almost become synonymous with inconvenient stopovers. Close-to-midnight arrivals, early morning departures and all-day stopovers. We've all been there. If sitting for hours in the departure hall and looking at your watch just to follow the movement of the hands or walking back and forth through the airport's shopping area doesn't exactly seem too appealing - how about trying a good old-fashioned nap?

Often, a little nap in the glow of the airport lights will feel both welcome and well-deserved after bravely fighting the travel world's many trials, which can make even the most indulgent travelers roll their eyes and erupt a single, but deep, sigh.

Fortunately, there is hope ahead. There are several airports around the world that are both comfortable and not least quite interesting to be in, now that the journey still requires a stopover.
