Twelve-hour layover in Halifax? No problem. ✈️

The Best Airports To Get Stuck In For A Layover Were Ranked & Canada's Got A Couple Of Them

The hours-long airport layover is a boring rite of passage that any traveller has had to face at some point, but it seems as though some airports are better to get stuck in than others.

That's according to Club Med, which looked at 100 of the world's best airports and determined which were more ideal for long layovers. As it turns out, Canada's got two on the list!

Based on factors like proximity to the city, airport size, number of shops and restaurants inside, number of hotels, staff friendliness, how well-liked the customer lounge is and how fast the Wi-Fi is, Club Med says the best airport for a layover in the world is the Singapore Changi Airport.

Vancouver International Airport was ranked the highest in Canada at number 24 on the list, with a great score for Wi-Fi speed but only a few shops and restaurants to choose from.

Next on the list was Halifax Stanfield International Airport in Nova Scotia at number 47, also scoring high for Wi-Fi speed and a good number of nearby hotels, but only scoring 64% for its customer lounge.

You can be madly in love with someone, but one of the most trying ways to test your relationship is to do long distance. We've all been there at one point, maybe it was back in uni, when your boyfriend stayed back home and you moved away for college. Or maybe it's more recent and your partner had to take a job in a different part of the country. It could even be that your S.O. had to move across town so you guys don't live close by anymore. Either way, we all know that feeling of feeling too far away from our bae.

No one really expects long distance to be as hard as it actually turns out to be. I, for one, am sadly an expert when it comes to being in a long term relationship and being in a long term long distance relationship. I always knew that people complained about LDRs but I had no idea how unbearable the entire situation would be until I was in one.

So much to do, so little time. Sigh... doesn't that pretty much sum up the whole semester? Actually wait nvm, that pretty much sums up every. single. day. And when you're a student, you chill for like a sec and before you know it your six midterms behind and a hundred assignments away from semester break. It's worse right now too cause we're halfway through the semester, which means midterms after midterms. 

But don't worry Vancouverites, we got you. We know that on top of school, work, sports, extracurriculars, volunteering, campus clubs, and a significant other, you also need to fit in a social life. Because as The Spice Girls say, friendship never ends! But when it can feel impossible, we're here to tell you mission impossible can be achieved.

We know that it's only October, but come on, it's never too early to be thinking about Christmas, is it?

The holidays are all about tradition - whether it be decorating your Christmas tree, carolling around your neighbourhood, or even baking cookies for Santa (for all those who are kids at heart).

We all love a good slice of za, don't we? Pizza is probably my favourite food group, yes it qualifies as an entire food group in my books. But there's definitely a difference between a regular ol' American pizza and the quality pizza pies that taste like they came straight from Italy.

This pizzeria hidden in the suburbs will transport you back to that cozy brick-walled cafe in Rome that you visited in summer of 2012. That trip where you backpacked your way through Europe, and now you find yourself constantly craving the cheesy delectable pizzas of Tuscan Italy.
