Keeping a Layover From Being a Lame-over

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Today I left Des Moines at 8:30 for Atlanta, flying through Chicago's O'Hare airport.  I failed to realize that my itinerary included almost a 3 1/2 hour layover.  Awesome  

Determined to stay positive (it is the holiday season, after all) in my least-favorite airport; I decided to take in as much as possible.

I also got a chance to enjoy my favorite travel-breakfast, a chorrizo breakfast burrito and glass of milk :)

Full from my delicious breakfast, one of the first things I noticed were the holiday decorations around the terminal - the greenery and lit globe were beautiful and made me want a big mug of hot chocolate.  Thank goodness for Starbucks!

Hot chocolate in hand and a little less than three hours to kill, I noticed the underground tunnel linking Concourses B and C.  When I decided to scoop out the other concourse, I remembered that I had my little point and shoot camera and decided to try to make a video.  The quality is iffy (at best) but it was fun to take and make.  Enjoy :)

Slowing down gave me the opportunity to appreciate an airport I usually avoid, and made for an enjoyable day!
