Well, late last week, I had my first excuse to take a business trip. I went with a small team of people (my boss, our lead sales guy, and I was the technical guy) to give a presentation on our product down in Alabama.
As a guy who spends most of his working days staring at code, there really hasn’t been an occasion when I’ve needed to travel for anything. However, this time my boss told me he wanted to get involved as a contact for the company. Seemed like a good thing to me, so I went with it.
I’m sure it wasn’t your typical trip though, because we were asked on Wednesday to come down for a Friday meeting, so we scrambled to get arrangements to get down there by Thursday night. After a few hours of meetings in the morning, we then made our way back.
It was a nice change of pace to get out of the office for a little while, and I’m already looking forward to my next opportunity to travel.
