The Lonely Event Traveler

As I sat alone eating my three chipotle shrimp tacos at a west coast Westin in the desert, I realized that traveling for business is far less glamorous than what I imagined growing up.  I thought I would travel to exotic locations, waited on hand and foot,  luxuriate with friends on someone else’s dime and oh… get some work done eventually. In reality, traveling for work means a lot of high wifi fees just to access your email remotely, sitting in airports for hours because of delays and airplanes even longer because some woman in first class decides she absolutely must to get off before we take off, checking into amazing hotel rooms and open your window to find that you have a view of the dumpster and the parking lot, lots of long days with meetings and most importantly spending a lot of time alone!

Even though it can be a little lonely traveling for work, I love every moment of it for one very important reason; The end result is an amazing event.
