Airports have always been a means to an end, a necessary stop on the way to someplace better. Sure, some may have renowned restaurants, rooftop pools, and even strip clubs, but they're still pretty much the purgatory between boring old home and a wild vacation. Or visiting mom.

Mostly just to say you've been there. But also, to say you've been there on Instagram. These are eight of those airports.
