A Business Trip Survival Guide for #Careerlions

For some jobs, business trips are essential and you will have to fly out at least every so often. Video-conferencing, despite all the technological improvements, just doesn’t always cut it.

Autumn Reads For #Careerlions

This week I will share with you the books that I currently have on my autumn reading list. Inspired by the autumn weather that we are currently experiencing in the Netherlands. It makes me want to curl up on the couch or chair with a good book, tea, and snacks. While reading in the sun has its charms, so does rainy weather while being grateful that you are nice and cosy inside. If anything, there is nothing I hate more than being in the rain. Wondering which books to order for the plentiful rainy days to come? Then look no further and find some suggestions in today’s blog.

How to Make a Home Away From Home: Ashley

This Tuesday, Liona shared with you her tips to make a home away from home while traveling. I think I can say that I travel a lot and it, of course, takes a toll on my energy levels as well. However, I think if there is one thing that I can manage on the road it is probably feeling at home no matter where I am. There are few places in the world where I felt uncomfortable and was desperate to go home. I frequently catch myself saying that I am ready to go home while on duty trips or vacation, where I truly refer to the hotel room as "home". Today, I will share with you my tips for feeling at home basically anywhere. Just as a small disclaimer: I might just be a bit less affected by staying in a different place than you, so no promises.

However, there is an upside to all of this! This week’s blog is dedicated to making you feel better about working your butt off this summer at the office.

Bart and I have been loving our holiday to Hawaii. I won tickets last year to fly to any destination with Delta, which turned out to even be in Business class! This is the moment I started dreaming and the whole world felt like it was within reach. We had some “hard” choices to make on how to best use this unbelievable prize I got to win with work. It wasn’t long before Hawaii made it on to the list, along with Australia, the Galapagos Islands, the Maldives, Madagascar, and Tahiti. We like to be a little more on the active side during our holiday and after some consultation on the weather in our top choices, Hawaii made the cut. As Hawaii is more breathtaking than I could have ever imagined, here are 8 reasons why you should also consider booking your trip to Hawaii!
