Travel too much?

So as I sit here in the Delta Sky Club in Atlanta,  I have a new respect for the business traveler.  In the past month,  I have been to London,  New York,  Minneapolis and now Atlanta while I sit waiting to go to El Paso to surprise a friend (Don’t worry,   this  won’t be posted until after I am there). Since January,  I have been to Atlanta,  Washington,  DC and Los Angeles before the last couple flights this past month plus a few Caribbean cruises in there as well. I have hit Silver Medallion on Delta just based on flying for the first time this year which is a lot for me. It should also be a sign that I have traveled too much this year when the Delta agents at the gate and in the Sky Club know you by name.

As much as I love to travel,  I simply don’t know how people can do this weekly or daily for their job. I am physically exhausted and look forward to this coming weekend when I can really just relax around the house and catch up on housework and all my shows on my DVR and iTunes. Flying is hard work and all of the jet lag can add up.  Trust me,  having gotten over a cold and then forcing myself back in to a gym routine is hard. The other side effect is the lack of a true sleep pattern or house work pattern.  Laundry simply has gone from one bag to the next as it gets cleaned.

I know it sounds like I’m complaining about traveling, but,  I’m not. I am fortunate enough to be able to do the travel I have and this post is just an observation and a reflection on my travel this year. Having said that,  cheers and see you in the air!
