I definitely made progress reducing my stress levels during travel. (Repeated experience creates confidence.) On my way back from BUCK, I found myself listening to my MP3 player pretty much all the time while walking around the airport. Most of the time I even synched my steps to the beat of the music, and that turned dodging people and finding the optimum path through the crowds into a fun little game, not unlike Audiosurf (which I bought recently).
Kinda reminds me of this very related video that excites me every time I watch it:
