    Yeah ok smarty pants, you get on a plane

    but I mean, do you have any routines? shops you must do, restaurants you must eat at? ways to make the time go more quickly?

    I used to like the lounges but they seem to be letting more kids in than ever before which just annoys me recently we've been going to get a breakfast and somehow the time goes pretty quickly before we're queuing up to board.

    Do you enjoy the hustle bustle or would you rather it be a more relaxing experience?

    Well we go to get breckies after security check and then a wander round the shops, then take a seat, headphones on-Ipod on and snooze till i get the usual poke in the ribs from nearest and dearest to say stop snoring time to go to gate.

    We seem to eat, sit around, eat a bit more, have a wander round the shops, buy some water and some nibbles for the plane and then its usually close to boarding time!

    I do the same as George Carlin used to do at airports.

    I look for spies!

    We do bagdrop then head off for a bacon sarnie. A look around duty free, pick up extra water to drink on the flight, then go find a seat and read until it's time to board.
    I'm on a mission next trip though - I want a particualr perfume I had a sample of in Epcot so I want to see if it's cheaper at the airport.

    Oh I LOVE the airport, I love going shopping and I smell nearly all the perfumes until my head buzzes and I can't remember which one it was that smelled good. I have to go back and re sniff and then I make a purchase. We look at the sunglasses and the watches and anything else I can clap my lil eyes on! We mostly look and keep me away from the books. Usually we hardly have any time left until we board, I don't know where the time goes it just slips by I must get there earlier than the usual three hours beforehand.

    As far as I'm concerned my vacation has started!

    I have a tremedous fear of flying so I rarely fly but when I did there was some self medicating (alcohol) going on.
