Hi There, this new blog of mine has been a bit slow to take off (pardon the puns, can't help myself !). But I have been traveling again recently and have some new content for posts in InFlightChat. Some tips for travelers. Some stories to share from my travels. Maybe a rant here or there. Travel used to be glamourous and exciting. And for some people it still is exciting. I love to get to work with other people and experience other places. But travel is not glamourous any more, it is a hard piece of work to do. Tips on how to keep one's sanity and grace (as much as can be done) can be useful !
So who am I to have something to say on this topic ? I travel a fair bit...I did 6 round the world trips for business last year, each of 4+ weeks duration on the average, and visiting 6-10 countries and that many or more cities. Occasionally I also travel for personal vacations. In the course of logging air miles, hotel nights, and other aspects of international business travel, I have come up with my own ways of coping and keeping productive. I will share some of these in coming posts.
Today's post finds me at home in South Australia, in raging hot summer weather (tipped to be 43 C today, that is about 109 F !). I have just returned from arctic chilly Chicago this past week and am relieved to be back. This is my second transpacific return trip from overseas in a month's time.
More soon, check back for the first of a short series of posts on Packing for on the go Business Travel (effective techniques also for non business travel).
