This book was written to help bridge the gap between the seasoned Road Warrior and the beginning business traveler. The author has spent almost his entire life traveling in the pursuit of economic opportunity, leisure travel with friends and family. He has traveled to every U.S. state, lived in Europe and the Middle East, worked on location in Central Asia and the Silk Route, and traveled multiple times to Australia. Flights have included up to 25-hour door-to-door flights from the East Coast of the U.S. to Sydney, Australia, arriving at 6:30AM, and then going straight to work. He also recently flew around the world and spent the new Years in Bangcock and Rio de Janeiro. He has experienced every travel problem you can imagine.
He and his family lived in Denmark for three years. He also recently completed a two-year project in the United Arab Emirates that included time in Saudi Arabia. When you spend so many years on the road, winning business, managing projects, plus carving out personal time with family, you build Road Warrior experience. Not only responding to what can go wrong on domestic and international travel, but you also learn how to adapt and solve the litany of travel glitches that occur. When you live on the road, you also need to discover a life worth living. There is an unbelievable amount of adventure out there when doing business travel. There are also many risks. The key is to develop travel-savvy habits that benefit you, who you work for and your family. From extensive international travel, you will grow professionally, personally, and your family can also gain in some of the benefits of what other destinations hold. It is a great gift to include your family to see major historical sights and attractions.
There are challenges to overcome, rules to live by, but great rewards if you work at managing your business travel style. Road Warrior business travel is something we can all share in.
