Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in … time to pack for an international business trip, which requires a trip to the grocery store.
On Saturday, I leave for the first international business trip in over a year. As a bonus, it’s a country I’ve never visited before (Germany). As an super added bonus, my wife is coming along.
My ticket is paid for by the company so I can go blab about firmware at a trade show in Nuremberg. Suzan’s ticket is paid for by me because the trip was planned to close to the departure to use SkyMiles … but Suzan has wanted to go to Germany since before we met, and I know I would be in big trouble if I didn’t try to get her on the plane.
I consider it money well spent.
International travel has changed a bit since I last visited Asia. The new “War on Moisture” means I need quart sized bags to contain my conditioner of terror, shampoo of evil, and shaving cream of mass destruction. It’s good to know that the TSA has expanded its reach from the security line to the grocery asile. Now Ziploc & Hefty bags have TSA approval stickers.
My sandwich feels safer already.
As usual, trip updates will be posted here for your reading pleasure.
