Man, I guess EVERYONE out there has been worried about the way I travel these days….my friend Lammy sending me a private facebook message, my friend Yuki in Shanghai telling me I need an assistant to travel along side me (of course, Yuki volunteered for that role, so long as I paid her and paid her travel expenses, not a bad life, right!)
And then just the other day, I received this email from Ken Martin at nursingschools.net to post 100 handy travel hacks for the business businessman JEeez, ok everyone, I get the point….i’m some idiot now that is rushing around, not traveling properly. I guess I am just openly telling my life online, and sharing all the tradgeies and problems I’m having.
But hey, its also kind of cool that people are actually listening, and giving me ideas on how to better manage this insanity I have surrounded myself with. now that I am back “home” in shenzhen, china, I can better prepare and plan as I need.
In this article, the author breaks it down into some groups….funny how I realize I am barely following any of these properly…
a) General – bring tissues (yea, I learned that the hard way, china doesnt use toilet paper in public restrooms!!!)
b) Prevention & Safety – AVOID OVERCROWDED TRANSPORTATION – hahaha, this person definitely hasn’t been to China….or Asia…that is not possible.
c) Sleep – get a solid sleep schedule before your trip…..hmm, hard to do when you have conference call at all times of the day and night….
d) Fitness – seems I followed this a bit, did get to try Yoga, and I went for some swimming. Good job, Mikey!
e) Food & Drink – don’t drink alcohol? have you been on a business trip, in Asia? really? Another one is make sure you don’t eat undercooked meat…..damn, I think that one I have violated too many times here, street meat and fast food of unknown “burger machine” (ate some of that in the philippines)
f) Stress – NO STRESS!! jeeeez, I guess i completely failed here……just not in my personality….
h) hotel – not going to take a flashlight with me in case the power cuts off, but do have a mobile phone if i need it. Another one on the list is talking about wiping down the hotel room, sure….that can help….maybe I should re-wash the sheets too though?
Good article, and funny people find me about travel PROBLEMS online…..guess I complain so much people find me all over the internet searching about travel issues…..lmao, cheers
