However, being in an airport can be stressful — especially if one step in the process gets delayed. For the best travel experience, try using these tips that I've learned over several years of air travel.

Download your boarding passes onto your phone before arriving at the airport.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.
