If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know by now that traveling is my addiction ✈️
Just in 2018 I’ve visited 5 States and 5 Countries, and I still have a couple of trips planned by the end of the year 🤩
I was having a conversation earlier today, and someone pointed out that I used to travel kinda a lot also with my former job, and that’s true in all honesty. The company I used to work for sent me to Switzerland, Spain, Miami, D.C., Los Angeles, Vegas, and a number of cities in Italy as well 🗺
But let me tell you how different “traveling for work” was from “traveling while working online” ✋🏻
Let’s take two different trips to Vegas, the first one in 2015 for my former company, the second one in 2018 while partnering with the company we work with 👇🏻
My friends back home were like “Omg you’re so lucky, they sent you to Vegas, you must be having so much fun!”
Yeah, no. Not really. 😐
My alarm was set at 5am, because I needed to be at the store by 7.30am 😴 The gym at the hotel they had booked for us would open at 7, so I’d go out and run up and down the stairs like a crazy person 🙈
Then I’d sneak back in the room because my roommate was still sleeping, and since we had never met before (yep) I sure didn’t wanna be rude you know 🤷🏻♀️
I’d spend the day setting up the new store (imagine moving to a new place, x10 😱), lunch was at the mall with a $15 expense allowance, and then back to work until 7/8/9pm depending on how the work was progressing 😨
Then dinner out with the team and the boss, maybe even to a fancy restaurant, too bad that at that point I was dirty, sweaty and tired as hell 😪
I had one day off, I went to the pool on the rooftop, passed out for how exhausted I was and got sunburnt. Yay. 🔥
I was in Vegas, but I could have been anywhere in the world, since I was literally just working and sleeping 🙄
If you scroll to the second picture, that is me, almost falling asleep on a couch in the mall while we were closing the store at night 😒
Now this trip was a little different 😎
We started the days working out at the gym 🏋🏻♀️ or taking the complimentary yoga classes 🧘🏻♀️ offered as part... (continues in comments)
It wouldn't be a Tuesday without daydreaming of my favorite European cities, right?
I always feel so fortunate to have lived in Europe for three years, and have spent so much time traveling and exploring other cultures. Lisbon was my favorite city (outside of Italy) for three reason:
1) The BEAUTIFUL tiled buildings!
2) The tart cherry pastries.
3) The smell of salty ocean air.
Those sunset vibes. All smiles from our travelers here in Bali☀️🌈🌺 Who do you want to come to Bali with?
