I think of traveling across continents in much the same way as my friends in the United Kingdom think of getting a bus or train to get to the next town.
I travel nearly 15-20 days out of the month globally...everywhere I have been has something interesting about it.

 “I travel nearly 15 - 20 days out of the month globally. I love to travel but there are two kinds – business and pleasure. I think of traveling across continents in much the same way as my friends in the United Kingdom think of getting a bus or train to get to the next town. It is just a process and part of the pattern of work. I am accustomed to long distance travel and have a very organized process.

One of the benefits of this kind of intense travel is the ability to recognize good and bad service since this is a major element of travel.  I have not thought of changing because despite the advances in communication nothing is better than a face-to-face meeting. The travel schedule is an important part of a global job and since I have the passion for what I do, traveling is a necessity. The biggest benefit is getting a truly global perspective on issues.  Everywhere I’ve been has something interesting about it.”
