Traveling: it's the absolute worst. Something about lazing about on mass transportation and in fluorescently-lit waiting areas is absolutely exhausting in a way that lazing about in your home is not. Maybe it's the lack of nutrition you feel from ingesting nothing but Auntie Anne's pretzel dogs and Cokes they can charge $4 for because you have no other options after passing through security. Maybe it's the constant Secret Service-level vigilance you have to uphold in order to honestly answer the TSA when they ask if your bag has ever left your sight. Or maybe it's the yearly exercise your quads get when you hover over the airport toilets teeming with international butt germs. Whatever the case is, we hate traveling but just can't avoid it until someone finally comes up with a safe method of teleportation.
In the meantime, you can make travel suck a little less with technology on your side. We've combed American airports and airlines to find the most connected spots. As long as you're stuck on land or in the air, these airlines, airports, and even specific terminals will make that time a little bit easier to stomach. We can't say the same for the $18 Caprese sandwich you'll be buying at LAX.
