Oh the “fun” of business travel … On the Road Again …

[Updated post 5-Sept-2016 AU/NZ Trip Added – Previous updates 24-May-2016 – more travel posted to map and text]

So this year has seen a lot of travel already, and now that there have been some changes at the office, I’ll be doing a quite a bit more this year. As a way of keeping a log of where I go, I’m going to use the map on this page and pin each of my trips in 2016.

When they put the word “Global” in my department’s name I knew there would be some travel required, but its going to get completely insane/comical this year … almost like on MASH when Frank figured out that the M stood for Mobile and made the unit move across the street …

So where the hell am I going?

So far on the plan is Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Poland, London UK, Barcelona, Budapest, and probably Norway and Italy as well… racking up them AAdvantage Miles … HHonors and SPG Points too … at least I’ll have my camera with me the entire time for more images to play with ๐Ÿ™‚

Updates: my June 2016 Travel is booked and set … Dublin, Ireland; Warsaw, Poland; London Area, UK … 17 days on the road – if there are suggestions for things I need to do in any of these cities – post a comment! I am totally excited I get to take my better half with me for the Irish leg of the trip … and my camera gear ๐Ÿ™‚

5-Sept-2016 Update

As I write this I am preparing for the next bit of travel fun – off to New Zealand (Auckland and Queenstown) and Australia (Sydney) for 2 weeks for business. I also updated some travel in August to Boston that I failed to include… more updates after I get things settled and organized for the trip.


I’m a Travelin’ Man


If anyone is curious, I am using Nomad Map for travel tracking on Google Maps, and out of several WordPress plugins I’ve tried out for this type of map/log it was the best!
