Oh, the life of a traveling shlub. It's not all three martinis or unrestricted expense accounts. Not at all.
While overall, I don't mind work travel, it is fairly unglamorous. But it's all about setting expectations. If you don't want for too much, you're a happier camper. Set those sights too high, and well.......you're screwed.
See the above image? Not bad. I quite like staying at the Hyatt Place. It's a lower version of the Hyatt, which is overrated anyway. But it clearly has a nice sitting area, for when you're entertaining. Oh wait, it's just me. So, it is a good place to sit and eat if you bring food back to your room - or to lounge and watch TV.
Normally I do not watch TV while traveling. It's odd, I find, but I don't. Last night I did. It sure beats the norm of lying on the bed to watch the boob tube.
But then you also have this -
Work travel is heavy for the next few weeks. I'm up for the challenge, of course.
