What an awesome year it has been for Layover Adventure! Thank you for your support, encouragement and engagment. The idea that layovers don’t have to be painful! That you can re-claim your layover and do the things that you enjoy when travelling, meet new people, share layover tips, access travel deals and be inspired by other travellers. It may have not taken off yet! Lol! We know it will in the future with your help.
I shared the crazy idea of making layovers a more happy experience, on my trip to San Francisco in April and got some positive feedback about the idea!
I started my Facebook Page in March in anticpation of my trip to San Francisco.

June - I went in search of a travel adventure to prove what an interesting experience a layover could be. I planned to trip to Finland to attend Beach Boost Finland 2012, stopping over in Oslo (for a day), Norway enroute! :)
I had a lot of fun at Beach Boost, made friends and was inpsired to move forward with my startup idea!
August - I went on a Layover Adventure (short-break of up to three days) to Paris. I shared my survival tips with you everyone. :)
September - We had great fun and produced a wonderful promotional film about enjoying a Layover in London. Thank you to all involved in the production of the film.
Click here for Layover Adventure Film. The making of the promo film! :)
December - we tried to launch a DIY Meetup Group and I failed, but I have a great time at Winter Wonderland, the first meetup outing! :)
It has been a really great year, with many travel adventures, meeting new people and inspiration to continue this crazy idea that layovers can be a happy experience! I will be back next year, to share more travel experiences, adventures and layover tips. Please do get in touch and let me know how I can make your layover experience a happy one!
Don’t be shy, please message me via the Layover Advenuture Facebook Page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are stopping over in London especially, drop me a line and I would be happy to help you have an awesome London layover!
Happy Holidays! Wishing you safe journey’s over the holiday period. Hoping to inspire some of your travel experiences in 2013! :)

As they say all good things have to come to an end. I enjoyed some final sunshine in the urban park near the modern art musuem. I took the Bart back to the airport rather than the airport shuttle for a final authentic San Franciscan travel experience. I managed to get to the airport on time and through security. I also managed to leave my laptop at security and had to respond to a tannoy call to claim it back. So until the next time San Francisco!
Checkout Layover Adventure, a website to give you a social travel experience, coming soon!

I went to see “Bonsai”, a film from Chile which is a romatic/comedy/drama, which was the the Pacific Archieve Theatre. It was an interesting film, I always like to see international films to get a flavour for other cultures and possible places to visit! I visisted Berkely, home to the famous University for the film fest. It was a typical uni town, I enjoyed some great chinese and also had a look in the local Crossroads shop. I picked up an amazing bag, if the intended recipent does not want it I will totally keep it. It’s a black and white large faux snake skin bag and is very classy in my humble oppnion. I also managed to find some green space and take a little rest before the film, as the weather was not bad either!
