The Joys of Work Travel

These past few weeks Keenan and I both had a fairly intensive work travel schedule. It’s one of the perks of living and working in London – traveling around Europe both for business and pleasure.
Sometimes business travel can be a drag especially those day trips which require you to be at London City Airport at the crack-ass of dawn, and returning late in the evening. I’ve done a few of those crazy trips this month, once to my least favorite place for business travel – Luxembourg (it’s all work and no play) and a hectic last-minute business trip to Warsaw with my boss’ boss (Partner of Project Finance). Talk about pressure…
It’s not all bad -- I got to travel to some nice places, for example Barcelona which is one of my favourite European cities. Client meetings ended early so my colleagues and I spent the afternoon basking in the glorious sunshine whilst drinking cava near the beach.
Keenan also spent a week in Italy for a recent engagement, traveling between Milan, Florence, and Naples (and of course eating pizza and pasta along the way).  Below are some snap shots of a few photos during our work travels. Enjoy!

Night stroll through the streets of Milan - commercial, fashionable, orderly (relative to other Italian cities)

Florence: artistic, impressive Duomo, and yummy gelato

Beautiful Barcelona: sun, cava, jamon, Gaudi's world, and beach

Warsaw: On two business trips to the Polish capital, I only saw this Norman Foster building on Pilsudski Square and the nearby Warsaw Sofitel Hotel.

Luxembourg:  my favourite building.
