Why I Love To #Travel (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_travel_the_world
I just love to travel. I have been lucky in that I have been able to do a lot of it in the last few years. I have been able to go to 11 #countries and 30 #states. (C) Hernan Sanchez

When I was growing up we didn’t travel very much. We usually only went to see my Grandparents in Arizona. It wasn’t that my parents didn’t want to travel. I guess they just wanted to save #money so we did more #local #trips.

When I was 19 I got my first taste of traveling. I went to #Washington DC for the week with a friend of mine. We had such a #good time. We got to see almost everything. It was an amazing trip and I knew after I returned home that I loved to travel.
The next trip I went on was a trip to Canada when I was 21. I went with my boyfriend at the time. We went during the #wintertime so we got to check out some of the local winter sports. We were able to check out a dog sled race.

As soon as we got back from #Canada, I started saving for my next #vacation. I knew if I didn’t make it a #priority, I would spend my money on something else. I started making a list of all the #places I wanted to go.
My next trip was when I was 22. I was able to go to #Brazil for the week. I had a friend from college whose cousin lived over there. I was able to stay with her. I got to see so many #amazing things on that trip.

When I was 24 I was able to go to #Ireland for my #honeymoon. We got to stay there for eight days. It was a perfect trip. We were able to see a lot of the #countryside and talk with a lot of the local people.
When I was 26 my husband and I went on our first cruise. On this trip we were able to visit six different countries. We went to #Italy, #Greece, #Egypt, #Turkey, #Malta and #Spain. We got to see so many different countries and #cultures on that trip.

We are now saving for a trip to #Australia. We both have always wanted to go there. As it is rather expensive it is going to take a while to have the money to do it. It will be worth it. We are already making #plans about what we want to see while we are there.
We are hoping to be able to visit for three months. It all depends on how much time we can both get off work. We don’t plan on having any #children until after we go on that trip.

I love traveling because I love seeing other parts of the #world. I love to see how a different culture or part of the countries lives. Our world might seem big but it is really small when you think about it. I hope I continue to travel until I can no longer physically do so.

Controlling #Business Travel Costs

Business Travelling, Berlin Training
Sometimes when we are traveling on business, it is easy to let costs get out of control. But if you are working from a per diem or have other constraints on your travel #budget, you should learn some cost cutting #methods that you can put into effect that won’t make your #life miserable on the #road.

These #cost-cutting ideas are not just to stay out of trouble with the budget people back at the #home office.  Often businesses have a set budget for business travel and once it is gone, no further trips can be made during that budget year.  So if you anticipate the need for more business trips in months ahead, it is prudent to keep an eye on costs as you go so you can conserve that limited budget to facilitate important #trips yet to come.

#Economizing on the road can be difficult because you are put right in the middle of the hospitality industry which, while good at making you feel comfortable and providing for your needs, hotels and restaurants are also good at running up your tab.  But there are some easy ways to sidestep a lot of unnecessary spending so you can stretch your business travel budget.

*    Eat before you go.  #Airport restaurants or snack bars are notoriously overpriced.  So even if you are leaving early in the morning, have breakfast and get well satisfied before leaving home so you don’t have to buy #food en route.

*    Wise #packing.  Think through your life in the #hotel and on the road.  You can buy travel sizes of almost everything you will need.  Moreover, you can pack some light and easy to carry snacks such as trail mix, candy bars or nuts that can be used to tide you over during the trip until you can get a good meal.  By being self-dependent during the trip, you save a lot by not using airport services.

*    A hotel is just a bed, a shower and a TV.  When booking your #accommodations, think about where you should stay.  If you don’t need a #luxury hotel, don’t book one.  If you are just staying the night in one place and then moving on, a clean, well run motel can take care of you just as well as the executive suite at the Hilton.

*    #Share that ride.  If you are traveling as a party or you are meeting business partners at the #destination, you can share cabs or rental vehicles and save business costs as well as conserve on burring fossil fuels unnecessarily.

*    #Markets and #delis.  You can even eat economically in a big town like New York or Orlando by using the same sense you have at home.  By taking an early trip to a nearby grocery, you can stock your room with #fruits and #travel foods and cut down on the amount of meals you have to eat out.

*    Public #transportation.  If the town you re traveling to has safe and workable #subways or other public transpiration, that can be much more #efficient for you than renting a car.  Washington DC for example has outstanding rail transport that you can use rather than rent a car.

By using some of the same good common sense you use at home to keep expenses under control for your home budget, you can not only live inexpensively on the road, you can actually live better.  And by not allowing yourself to be #overcharged for some very basic #goods and #services, you will feel better about your business outing and become known in your company as a #smart traveler.
