People watching – everybody does it. We even stopped a few travelers at Hamburg Airport to ask: What’s the first thing you do when you get home after a long trip?

I always miss my two cats, so as soon as I get back to Florianópolis in southern Brazil, I snuggle and play with them.

CATJA BROSCHINSKY, architect
What you'd expect: unpack my suitcase. Then I make myself something to eat with whatever is in the house - usually pasta with pesto.

The first thing I do when I get back to Hamburg is take my Dobermann, Chico, for a long walk by the Alster Lake.

ANTONELLA GUZZONATO, chemist
I eat some chocolate! I always have a few bars stashed away at my home in Bremen so there's always some to nibble on when I return.

MARIA DIAZ, singer
I travel a lot for my job, so when I get home, I like to make myself comfortable and then watch a show like "Modern Family".

After landing in Istanbul, the first thing I do is call my best friend, Ali. Then, we usually get together for a drink.
