On the Road 差旅的日子 (Part 1)
I spent about 120 nights on the road a year. It’s a lot of miles, airports, and hotel nights. In the past 6 weeks, I have been on the road every week. Luckily I still like what I am doing and enjoy to be on the road.
My typical week starts on by jumping on an airplane on Monday morning. After landing in the destination city, I breez through immigration and custom, then get on the most efficient transportation (train in Tokyo, taxi in most other cities) to the hotel. After checking into the hotel, I will send off emails I cleaned up during the flight. Then I will go to office, office to customers, business dinner if needed, 45 minutes gym, and most likely to take on a late night conference calls before go to bed. Typically I stop by one or two cities per week and then go home on Friday evening.
For those who envy people traveling all the time, it’s really not that exotic. After knowing every short cuts in almost every major airports and sleeping on every kind of hotel beds, travelling just becomes part of life.
I haven’t done any posting last week and felt guilty about it. Here are a few shoots I took tonight in my hotel room tonight.
My window looks out to the Tokyo tower. It was raining this evening. I took a run in the gym for 45 minutes and had light dinner in the room.
This was my dinner tonight.
I just did a long conference call with colleagues in the US and called family for 5 minutes afterwards. Sadly work seems to be more important
I am ready to get on more email …
BTW, these are my travel gears. No matter how far I go or how many days on the road, I only carry my brief case and a carry on suitcase. It’s probably a good idea to show you what’s inside my suitcase. I will do it next week before I unpack
Thanks for your visit today!
