Finding another way home

I love this brief piece on AVC.com by Fred Wilson and it got me thinking.

I’m fortunate enough to do a lot of travelling, both professional and for personal enjoyment and this takes me all over the world on a regular basis.

Whether or not I’m visiting for work or pleasure – there is always a sense of urgency to get back home. How many times had I travelled somewhere only to immedidately start counting down the clock to head back home.

Probably half a dozen or so flights in this year already and the urgency to make sure that no matter what – if the train or flight is delayed, I’ll always find another way home no matter the cost.

Travelling is great and I get a lot done during these trips especially writing and catching up on email but without a doubt theres no place like home.

Swapping flights and changing different train routes to get home quicker is far better for me than spending an extra 2-4 hours in a station/airport lounge ‘doing work’.
