Tips for Making Business Travel More Enjoyable

 If you have a job which involves doing a lot of travelling, you might start to feel tired, worn out and a little fed up from being away from home all the time. Whether it’s travel overseas or working away in the UK, spending long periods away from loved ones and those endless nights in lonely hotel rooms can take its toll. Here’s some top tips to help make your business travel life more enjoyable:

1                 1)  Explore
If you’re constantly moving around touring different parts of the country then there’s no excuse not to explore. Do some research on the place you’re heading to in advance and make a list of local attractions, independent restaurants and the sights you’d like to see. In your spare time, head out to see all these different things and time away from home will pass much more quickly than if you spend it sat in the hotel room the whole time.

2                  2)  Surprise Family and Friends
Keeping in touch with family and friends is now easier than ever before so whilst you’re away remind them that you’re thinking about them by sending them gifts. With domestic delivery services like the ones at TNT available for such great prices, you’ll be able to send them home a welsh cake from Swansea, or a delicious Bakewell Tart from Derbyshire, even a fridge magnet from a local landmark or a souvenir from a museum, to let them know you’re thinking about them.

                     3)  Travel with Your Home Comforts
One thing is for sure, living in hotel rooms you do start to miss your home comforts, so always be sure to pack the essentials when you’re going away on business. From your favourite fluffy slippers to your own dressing gown and favourite brand of tea bags, with your home comforts at hand you’ll be sure to feel a lot less lonely. There’s nothing like a few chocolate Hob Nobs and a cup of tea to make you feel right at home.

By following these tips on your next business trip, hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy your time away from home a lot more and the time should whizz by a lot faster. The homelier you make your time away the quicker it will go and before you know it, it will be time to head back home again.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
