Air Sick Lesson 7 / The Worst Part and Best Part About Traveling

The majority of my traveling is for business, the work I do keeps me on the road quite a bit. People who don't travel for work always tell me that I am so lucky to be able to see all these places and stay at hotels. Honestly the thrill of traveling wore off a long time ago, now its just a job and when your traveling for work you never really enjoy the places that you are going to, basically you are going to work and back to the hotel. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy what I do and I like meeting the people I go to see but what truly makes me happy is getting back home to the best wife in the world and my little girl (dog).

I spend most of the time on the road wishing I was with my family. The only thing that really saves me from a mental breakdown is that I really enjoy what I do and I have a wife that is very supportive. We talk on the phone the entire time I am gone and web cam when we can. We are used to having to be apart as for 2 years we lived in different countries.

The best part of my traveling is the plane home, I know that when I land, get my bag, get my car and drive home that my family will be there waiting for me and I will be back with the people and dog that makes me the happiest.

I am thankful everyday that I have a wife who is so wonderful to put up with the all the times that I have to be gone and I am lucky to have the best family in the world to come home to, that is what makes business travel worthwhile.

Its kind of unique to have weekly experiences that make up the worst and best of a situation but traveling is one of them and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Even though I am apart from the ones I love, it makes coming home the best part of my week.
