Airport scavenger hunt

When I went to Nicaragua a couple years ago, we had an obscure trek to our destination. We flew from Des Moines to St. Louis to D.C. to Miami to Managua. How one can be in all those cities in the same day is still amazing to me. This must be how T. Swift feels every day. On our last leg, we decided to do a scavenger hunt to make the layover go by a little faster. As far as I remember, we played boys vs. girls. I’m thinking about revisiting this list when I go to Chicago in July. Wish me luck!

1. statement hair
2. socks + sandals
3. foreign hotties
4. person reading Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings
5. doppelganger
6. pro athlete
7. velour jumpsuit
8. airport worker who can say the alphabet backwards
9. home-schooled [looking] child
