The Schematic View of Home

"Home" is a pretty simple concept for most people. If you grow up in one place, live there, settle there, all your friends and family are there, your possessions are there, and your life is there... that's your home. Pretty straightforward.

This starts to fail for travelers. If you spend 1/4th of the year in London and 3/4ths in Alabama, but you love London, your closest friends are there, etc... which is your home?

Trickier question. But the answer, still, is some mix of Alabama and/or London.

Now, what happens when your friends and family are spread across the world and you constantly move around, and you don't have home or hard ties anywhere? MUCH harder question to answer.

That was where I was a couple years ago. Strong connections to a half dozen cities, hard ties in none of them, and so on.

Lessons in Business Travel

Over the last couple of years, I've gone from someone who rarely traveled to feeling like the airport is my second home. Below are some of my biggest business travel takeaways that will help turn your travel experiences from mundane to enjoyable!

1. Join all rewards programs!

Make sure you get points for every plane you fly, train you ride, car you rent, and hotel you stay in. The points may take a while to accumulate, especially if you aren't loyal to particular providers, but you'll have free flights, rides, rentals, and stays before you know it.

2. Dress like a professional.
