What are the benefits of business travel?
A lifetime supply of hotel shampoo may be one benefit, but what else? Chances to travel to places you would otherwise never go? (That could mean Paris or Peoria.) A break in the office routine? (Too many breaks can be stressful.) The ability to build up mileage and the associated perks? (Even deluxe airport lounges can’t make up for too much time away from family.)
My perfect travel schedule would probably be one trip about every other month, planned well in advance, to destinations that have attractions above and beyond mundane office parks.
