A few weeks back I talked about my workation to Alaska. Something else worth giving a look at is the concept of business travel with build in vacation time coming and going from a business trip.
For those who are on the road a lot, building in a day or two on either side of the business trip for leisure can help make the concept of business travel much more enjoyable (and if planned correctly, without added additional cost).
After a bumpy plane ride back from my work-ation in Alaska, I decided my next trip that I’d break up my flights to and from my destination into two days of travel. For example, I plan on spending a day or evening in Minnesota on my way to Anchorage next year to see the new Twins stadium. On the way back, I’ll be hopefully stopping in either Denver or another baseball city to see a game there. I will be booking 4 one way tickets if possible to enable me to plan this well. I figure if I am going to have to rush from one plane to another and fly 8 hours each way, I might as well enjoy the time to and from both places.
