Business Travel. When you own your own business especially in public relations and serving national clients, business travel is part of life. I actually like traveling. Even for business. I make it an adventure. I have two rules I try to follow for business travel. Rule one is treat myself to a really good local meal. And the second rule is do something fun/cultural in the place I’m visiting. I am lucky to get to visit lots of neat places. I think it is important to be able to experience what makes a place unique. And it is nice to be able to share with others the information about where I’ve been instead of saying that I went from a plane to a car to a hotel to a conference room to a car to a plane then home. What vanilla is that?
I am a pretty simple traveler. I travel light with a backpack regardless where I go. I have become an expert packer; because of this well-worn backpack. While I have high standards for places to be clean and tidy, I am pretty no frills. Just give me a bed, wi-fi, and bathroom. I am happy.
What bothers me when staying in hotels? Two things that are big to me: having to pay for wi-fi and no usable plugs by the night stand to plug my iPhone into to charge at night. Perhaps it is the nature of what I do, but it is important that I have those two things.
So what are your business travel musts? And what are your pet peeves for business travel?
