One Minnesota woman who was forced to cancel her birthday vacation because of the pandemic decided to turn her home into an airport in order to recreate what would have been an exciting travel experience. 

Dana Jondahl recreated the entire airport experience from start to finish at her home in Maplewood, Minnesota complete with security check and in-flight safety demonstration.

Jondahl posted a very clever video on her Facebook where she played the role of a traveler, a TSA agent, a flight attendant and a marshaller.

“They told me no traveling for my birthday this year... #challengeaccepted,” wrote Jondahl in a caption for the video.
