Each time that I travel on business to Switzerland, I had always wanted to take a nice photo of the mountains that ring the country, or at least runs through it. Well, I get the opporutnity to do this over the next few days as we set out on some team building and meetings.
Unfortunately this also the third time in a row that Suan could not make the landing with me here. A combination of depleted air miles, budget and also time. You see, we are off to Russia next week and then in the 2nd week of June in the US for 2 weeks. Anyway its not like she’s not been here before.
It is definitely not a jet set lifesyle, rather more of taking “advantage” of the business travel to extend our own travel handprint – we call it “bleisure” after we learnt of this term. It’s not our invented term for sure.
The idea is to get a job that provides for a reasonable amount (its relative) of business travel so that:
- you’d earn some air miles, especially if you travel business.
- collect some hotel nights’ stay – some allow double dipping.
- combine that with some leisure on the side, ok best after.
Back to Switzerland, it really pays to get a window seat probably not over the wings, as that will provide much more unobstructed views. I’ll remember to do that when I do the return leg. Hopefully the day will be as clear and sunny as today.
