Agreed with those above....traveling for work is not as exciting as it sounds. Use to travel 25% to 50% with a former company. The cons definitely are greater than the pros.
-Away from friends / family
-giving company free work on your time (uncompensated travel time)
-airport / travel frustration....delays, connections, lost luggage, etc.
-always exciting sitting at the hotel bar or dinner table alone
-chances for on-the-road hookups are not as great as you'd think
That said, I'll be on the West coast all next week doing vendor audits.
