We love layovers.

OK, well maybe that's overstating things. And everybody would rather just get to where they're going. But unless your layover is truly miserable (flight delayed an hour at a time and you can't leave the airport.... you're sick... you have sick kids with you... it's a weather issue and not even the transit is moving....), there is often a golden lining.

Our philosophy is that there is no time like the present to get out and experience the world, wherever you are, whenever the opportunity presents itself. Sure, having a flight delayed is a drag, but consider the upside. You are traveling, and you are somewhere you didn't expect to be. What does the world hold for you?

We hope you enjoy our blog - and our tweets (that's where we share a lot, so be sure to follow us: @layoverideas
