These days it is pretty tough to squeeze out the time and money for a proper vacation, and most of us end up either doing without or taking quick weekend jaunts. In addition to these options, I like to employ a third choice – make your company pay for it!
Since I was lucky enough to land this job with travel included, I have often used this technique to score trips to places I would likely never be able to go, such as India and Jordan. I know many colleagues and friends who use this method, but apparently it is an actual thing with a name…”blended travel”, or mixing business with pleasure on the same trip. Whatever it’s called, I’m extremely grateful it exists!
