Business Travel

I travel for work and when those that don't hear that I do...they are instantly jealous.

I wonder what they are jealous of; 3 a.m. wake up calls for 6 a.m. flights? Hotels with bad cable options and a gym that consists of a broken bike and one treadmill? All day meetings and then a flight home that arrives at 1 a.m.? Airport delays? Canceled flights?
But in the end I think I would likely go insane if I were in the office day in and day out. Heck, I've even learned that now, after working from home for 2 months, being in the office for 2 days is enough to drive me batty.
So me and my frequent fliers miles are just going to go somewhere fun. Just don't know where yet.
But right now...All I want to do is go home.


  1. I think it depends on the kinda of travel. I used to travel a lot for work...at least twice or three times a month...and I hated it. Now I get to travel sometimes, but mostly for conferences. I like professional development, so I enjoy it. I like this job a lot more than the last one!

  2. also depends on the location. i hadn't traveled a lot for work in quite a while until about six weeks ago when i was asked to go to france for ten days to help out on a project. i don't speak french, my "hosts" didn't really want the help and i missed my family - but it was a company-paid trip to france! most importantly, the hotel had wi-fi so i didn't miss out on your blog!
