When I hate traveling!

I’m gonna be in Oman for the next couple of days.

I’m going for work of course.

As much as I love traveling, I loathe traveling for work. Especially the kind of work I do. I end up going to someplace like Oman or Bahrain or other equally boring places where I don’t know anyone other than the people I do business with. And obviously I don’t want to socialize with those people!

So I spend most of my time cooped up in the hotel with my laptop in front of me, or spend my time surfing channels on TV.

This time though, I do have one friend from school who is in Oman and I plan to meet up with her for dinner. So I’m hoping to have a better time than usual.

Wish me luck!

    I’m with ya on that. Every work trip I’ve ever had to take was the same. Work all day, then spend the evenings either alone in a hotel or trapped at some social event with co-workers I’d rather not hang out with after hours. I did learn to get out on my own and see the sites when I was in a city, when I was younger, because if you don’t force yourself to do that, you end up missing a great opportunity. But it’s just not nearly as much fun as being able to travel with people you love and have someone to enjoy things with!

      True. And I do like exploring on my own as well, but it depends on where I go. When I went to Egypt, I went out on my own to walk around and take a look at the place.

      But I usually cover uber conservative countries and walking out on my own is not the safest thing to do. This time round I met up with my old classmate and we went out together, which was great! :o)

      When I’m going for work, I don’t think I can do this! As it is, I have to arrange meetings and stuff, this would be an added burden, esp since most of the time I come to know I’m traveling only a few days before I have to leave.

      But I have heard of couchsurfing :o)

Go on! Tell me what you think!
