Hey readers! Got a question or something you want to discuss this weekend? Here’s the perfect opportunity! Whether you want to share an interesting travel story, a packing tip, an etiquette tip, or anything else going on in the business travel world, comment here and we’ll have a discussion.
Travel tip of the week:
- Sometimes business travelers have to drive long distances for work. When doing this your body can really start to stiffen up. To help loosen up try to do some simple movement exercises while you drive. Bend your arms, legs, neck, shoulder, back, and ankles as often as you are comfortable with. This should help loosen you up and help promote blood flow. My mother in-law is a big believer in this and safely does so when cruise control is on. Also, it’s not a bad idea to do this on flights either!
Week in review:
- What does it take to get to Raleigh? More than you think. A fire, a bird strike, and three planes to get to Raleigh.

Comment of the week:
- On a post I did this week about rain during business travel @Elle had this to say “I think you’ve got it covered. I never ever wear skirts or dresses, though, so I try to wear straighter slacks in wet weather. No question, NYC in the rain is a challenge. You have to look ahead to make sure you don’t run into someone with your umbrella (or vice versa), and you have to look down to make sure you’re not stepping into a massive puddle. You have to juggle the umbrella, purse, and other bag you may be carrying. Good luck opening the door to an office building or cab. And don’t even think carrying about a cup of coffee.”
Readers, chime in with what’s on your mind! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
