the tragedy of travelling with work.

Reading this post, I realized how true this can be about travel. Many a time, people like me are sent half way across the world. Considering economic issues that seem to be important to my company for some reason, it turns out that most trips tend to offer very little options for sightseeing, if at all.
Just last week I spent 5 hours on a plane, followed by another hour and a half on a train, just to fall asleep tired at a hotel, wake up to go to a meeting, and pop right back on the train to the airport. It didn’t really matter if the meeting was in the middle of the dessert or at the Louvre. It sucks. I was in the beautiful town of Bern, in Switzerland, and other than a quick photo in an empty street in the morning, I got Nada. It is truly a tragedy, to see the promised land and not be able to enter.

Only one tragedy greater: Being so jaded by travel that you no longer care where you are and not bother see the sights even if you can. May I never be that sad.

  1. Now I also have a place that links to me – how fun 🙂

    The best part of a business trip is when you actually have a few hours off to see the place you’re at.
    This makes 2 weeks business trips a bit nicer than the 1 week ones, and it makes meetings of international organizations for standardizations the best ones (lots of time, where you can usually skip out of some of the meetings)

  2. Ah
    but sadly I only have trips for a single meeting. So flying there for less than 24h is not unheard of 😦
