    How Do You All Do It?

    I'm getting burned out on this one.   Typically I'd travel a week here, a week there, stay in a hotel room for the week, and be back home for a few weeks before I went out again.   With this current project, I've been away from home since August...(now April...

    I Live a Few Blocks Away From ...

    I live a few blocks away from work. I love it because not only do I get to sleep in a bit longer, but the way the gas prices are these days!!! I would die if I have to travel too much for work.

    Coming home through a major international

    airport today. I have TSA PreCheck so I didn't pack very well...as in my bag was a #hotmess. Obviously it got pulled for a search. Weren't they in for a surprise? All my lacy panties scattered every which way AND a rabbit vibrator AND my glass pleasure wand. Oops.

    the Thrill Is Gone; Creating New Thrills Could Kill Me

    When I first started travelling internationally for work 12 years ago, I loved it -- seeing new countries, meeting new people, discovering new things, foods, places -- it was great. I barely touched my hotel rooms except to sleep, always out and about taking advantage of every...

    Finding Balance When Traveling Too Much For Work

    I Used to Travel a Lot

    For almost 20 years, I traveled extensively.  It was rare that I spent more than a week at wherever it was that I called home at the time.  I loved going to new places, meeting new people and experiencing what it is like to live in different parts of the world...

    And Another Lonely Trip Next Week

    Another sad chapter in my lonely travel for work saga. Away again next week (Port Lincoln). Nice place but again, I long for some company. Even just to have dinner with someone and chat about anything or nothing. The company would be great.... [sighs again.....]
