Traveling has always been one of my greatest pleasures. I try to take any opportunity to explore new surroundings or immerse myself in a different culture. I recently went to present at a conference in Vancouver and although my main focus in Vancouver was for work, I could not resist checking out some trendy gems between work related commitments.
Work/life balance has always been important to me, and when I travel for work it is no different. When I am away for work I always try to meet up with friends in the city, grab a bite at a trendy restaurant and of course sneak in a little shopping. In my experience, maintaining this balance helps me stay focused when working.
