  • 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.
