I am about to start another busy year of work trips. Many of them are work, just work, and not always to places I really wanted to go, but I go with the flow and look for the adventure. But once in a while, I get to go someplace fantastic. Hence my top five work trips.
1: Hawaii. The schedule was grueling, five 12+ hour days in a row, in paradise.
2: Mt. Washington, New Hampshire. It helps that it was in October and the mountains were spectacular. The program was short, the audience unconvinced, the venue was grand, but my reservation was lost and I ended up in an okay place across the street.
3: Browning, Montana. We stayed in East Glacier, literally across the street from the east entrance to Glacier National Park. I had a free day to explore the Park, it was in mid-May before things really opened up and before the tourists arrived (the high mountain road through the park was still not open for the summer.) The work was on the Blackfoot reservation and the hosts were wonderful.
4: Anchorage, Alaska. I went in a day early and went "Flightseeing" to Mt. McKinley, I had a reindeer dog downtown for lunch. It was a fantastic work trip.
5: San Juan, Puerto Rico. The program was at a great hotel on the water, in the nicest part of town, the hosts were wonderful, very welcoming and accommodating. My only experience working with live translators.
