See the world on the company dime

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!

See Gadling‘s full article here for tips and things to consider when thinking about a blended travel experience.
