Mixing Business with Adventure
The article is written by Sue Brush, who is the Senior Vice President for Westin Hotels and Resorts, and for the past 20 years her job has taken her all over the planet. In that time, she's seen a lot of changes in the way that we travel, and had the opportunity to explore dozens of foreign lands.
For business travelers, the key is to be efficient and take advantage of what ever amount of time is at your disposal. Sue says that when she was in Egypt back in 2007, she immediately switched into casual clothes upon her arrival and went to see the pyramids and to ride a camel in the Sahara. In total, she estimates that she spent no more than an hour taking in the sights, but it was still worth the effort.
With a little foresight and planning, the opportunity to mix in a little adventure can make those long business trips more rewarding and pleasureable.
