People travel for different reasons. Some people travel to run away from something. Others travel to run towards something new. Me? It’s a bit of each.
I travel a lot for my work as a non-profit fundraiser. I guess these are running towards donors, or potential donors, or conferences. On each of these trips I try to give myself a half day or a day to see the place I am. After all, it isn’t really travel when I only see hotel rooms and offices. So when I am on work travel, my posting will be shorter since I do have that whole job thing that sucks much of my time.
I also use the miles I accumulate from all my work travel, along with a conscious points and miles strategy using credit card spend, to go places for fun. These are my running away trips. Sometimes these are planned last minute because I just need to get away. In any event, these will tend to have more posts, and tend to be a bit more exotic. (No, Detroit is not exotic.)
So why am I starting this blog? Why does the world need to hear from another guy in a suit traveling the world? The short answer is that it is for me. I love to travel; I love to write. And more than anything else, I love to hear myself speak.
