How to sleep in an airport

Through CouchSurfing, I'm a member of the RTW (round the world) group. There are over 2000 of us from around the world that are part of this group and it was created for people that are dreaming about/planning/doing RTW trips (like me!). One of the threads that I came across was about sleeping in airports.

This happens to be a very timely topic for me because I leave for my trip in four days...and my first night on the road I'll spend sleeping in an airport. The website referenced in the thread is The Guide to Sleeping in Airports, in case any other travelers out there happen upon this post. I might be too hopped up on adrenaline to do any actual sleeping that first night, but at least I'll have some good tips under my belt.


  1. Cool site. How interesting that this kind of thing is tracked. I was alarmed to see Heathrow is the #10 worst airport, but relieved to see tips at how best to survive the ordeal.

  2. Yeah, I wasn't going to mention Heathrow because I didn't want to cause any alarm. :-) But when I saw the comments, a lot actually weren't bad, so I'm gonna play it like it's no big deal.
