All in Abroad
Yes, I am fully aware that I am late to the party, but I love audiobooks. The last few months I noticed that I was reading a lot less than before. Especially with my new job, most of my reading time has been more job relate. Then again reading Lonely Planet's also took up quite some time. With my reading challenge of 20 books and having fully finished only 2 new books, I needed to make changes quickly. When people started recommending me audiobooks more and more, I decided to do some research and start off with Audible. Having finished nearly 3 additional books in a month time, I am happy to say that I am hooked. Today, I will share with you all my reasons to love audiobooks. Hopefully, this will get those of you that are not convinced in the game. Making your #careerlion lives that much more efficient and productive.
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. However, I do plan to write a blog for you on the tips and tricks for video-conferencing very soon! These business trips do ask a lot from your health, I can say from experience. So, how do you survive? More on that in this week’s blog: a survival guide to business trips!
When you’re reading this, I am enjoying a long-awaited trip to Iceland and the United States. To me, a trip isn’t complete without bringing some books. Not only is it great entertainment during airport transfers or on the plane (hello eight hour flights), I also love to wind down in the hotel room in the evening and read. Today I am sharing my book choices for this holiday with you and how they made the shortlist!
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.
If there’s one thing I (and probably you too) love to do, it is to travel. While I enjoy traveling from one place to the next, it also takes quite its toll on your energy levels. For me, it takes a while before I am used to staying and sleeping in one place. Whenever I am feeling more at ease, that’s usually the time we’re already packing up for the next place. Leaving me with sleepless nights again. In September and October, I will be traveling for three weeks with a total of twelve different accommodations. This time, I thought I might pay some more attention to making a little home away from home and here are my tips.
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!
