Travelling for work

Ok, so I travel for work. A lot, of late.

San Fran, New Orleans, Singapore, India…and then of course the travel we do for fun. Singapore, Hong Kong, Xian, Phuket.

But let’s focus on work related travel. It sucks, mostly. Simply because you work a lot more when you are away from home. There just isn’t anything else to do, and even if there was, you rather check one more email, write one more instruction or whatever else you do for a crust.

It also sours countries for you. I love Singapore. I really do. Working there can be likened to entering somewhere between the eighth and ninth circle of hell – Treachery and Fraud – if you follow Dante.

Anyway, it is a very different experience that one has.

Most work related travel is also superfluous – Do we really need to go places in person for work these days? Really? What about video conferencing, instant messaging, Online collaboration and virtual encounters?

 

Right now I am in India, for the first time – and it is for work.

Sad, but that’s where we are now.

How do you feel about work travel? Like it? Hate it? Meh…?

(PS Why is everybody beeping here all the time???)
