    • Traveling rocks!
    • Except when it doesn’t.
    • Things that help make it tolerable….
    • Hanging with friends.
    • Seeing virtual colleagues.
    • Puerto Rican rum. (Thanks, Raul!)
    • Finding creative places to tuck the mic.
    • Checking luggage.**(What’s the big deal?)
    • Taking an iPhone photo as solution to: ‘I think I’m on the 5th floor…. Wait. Maybe not.’
    • Showing up when no one thinks you will.
    • An occasional Coke (and a smile).
    • Not taking things quite so seriously.
    • Finding the humor in the everyday…
    • …And being wowed by the ‘Wow’ moments.
    • Being thrilled by the unexpected.
    • Seizing respite when you chance upon it.
    • Charging when you get a chance.
    • Having someone else do the driving.**(And not just anyone, either. Someone you like a lot helps.)
    • Surrounding yourself with people who matter.
    • Finding art.
    • Never passing up an opportunity to do something you might never have a chance to do again.
    • Having a few laughs.
    • Ice cream.
    • Remembering that sometimes, it’s worth waiting for someone to get back from break.
    • Resting when you can.
    • Sampling the local cuisine (and hardware services.)
    • Connecting with old friends.
    • Getting chauffeured from the airport.
    • Making new friends.
    • The quirky charm of South Dakota.
    • Food that smokes.
    • Drinks at one of the oldest pubs in the US. (In Philly. I think.)
    • Finding the best crepes in the world at an unexpected place.
    • Looking up.
    • Chicago pizza.(When the pizza came, I was too busy eating to take a photo. Here’s the graffiti wall instead.)
    • Philly cheese steaks.
    • Bar games with colleagues.
    • Almost anything about London.
    • Forcing your kids to smile for photos when you ARE home.
    • And coming home again.
