Travelling completely takes it out of you.
Between the early rises, connecting flights and waiting for your gate, I often get sleepy.
I once arrived at an airport that had no bus services until the morning and taxis were super scarce and costly. The only thing my friends and I could do was to sleep it out and that's exactly what we did.
Problem was, we couldn't find a good spot to do so, so we spent an hour or two walking around grumpy and tired before eventually having to make camp on a set of very uncomfortable chairs.
Recently I've come across a website to help with these situations.

It goes into the specifics, detailing everything from lounges, close hotels, WiFi, showers, rest zones, luggage storage and mobile charging.
It also goes through what to expect and of course, where exactly to sleep.
Here's an example of what they had to say about Dublin Airport:
"Staff and security are generally tolerant of airport sleepers, though security sometimes objects to people sleeping in the multi-faith prayer room. Reviewers suggest that landside offers better overnight sleeping options because most airside seats have armrests. The landside food court and Terminal 1 McDonald’s are both cited as having comfortable chairs and couches. The airport gets cold at night, so a sweater or travel blanket are recommended. "
Pretty accurate if you ask me!
This is a game-changer.
