-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.
It also depends what you're traveling for. I do my "work" at my office and, when I'm on the road, it's marketing and entertaining. When my time on the road ends up being hanging out with cool people in a high end restaurant, eating well, and having a few drinks, it's not so bad.

I've got several friends who are auditors though. Many of them hate it. If I wasn't entertaining people on someone else's dollar, I'd have a much different view of traveling.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
