It is unbelievable but true that in Washington an average driver loses an entire week per year on traveling to and from his office! Experts say that the condition has worsened and there is little improvement in the traffic conditions in the peak hours.
Well, what can we say traffic has become an appendage to the modern commuting man!

What I am going to talk about actually is, a kind of traveling that I believe is not relished by most of my fellow beings. Traveling for work is something most people choose to avoid, but the hopeless optimist that I am, I have deciphered positive sides to this aspect of traveling also. Well, working at client sites isn't as bad as it is portrayed to be. One can have fun even while working in an environment that one is not comfortable with. I have a feeling that most of the people are wary of working in an unknown environment, under foreign supervision. This makes people wary of traveling on business purpose. However, money matters a lot and this makes people relent to traveling on business. But there is really no need to fret that much. Once you are sure of your work, you can spend the rest of your time exploring the foreign locale. However, it is really preferred that the tour is funded by either of the parties, either the client or the employer.

Marriages apart from uniting two beings formally into the relationship of man and wife, is an excellent platform for social get togethers great food. One thing I personally love about marriages is the whole process of dressing up. I just love the whole concept. Well, marriages are also a great way o stay in touch with ones acquaintances. It feels great to come under one roof for a noble cause of blessing the newly weds. This is one thing I like about marriages. They kind of save you the social visits and the pain of traveling long distances for the same.

Travel is more of an industry today. Today there are practically institutes that train people on this field. Earlier never could one imagine that one can find a source of income even in the field of travel. But the scenario is in front of you to take note of. Starting from travel agents, travel processes in the multinational companies, or the travel sites today everyone is keen on making the most out of this booming and colorful field of travel. I hope the travel gurus don’t come out hunting for me when I say that it is comparatively easier to get into the field of travel, and take it as a career. I know it is really difficult to completely master a skill but then it takes a bit less of effort when it comes to mastering or at least knowing the field. Travel is so paying that today we have even channels and magazines on it: “Travel and Living” to site an example!
Travel in itself is so interesting that on trying it becomes really easy to grasp the essence of the field and make it a career. But then everything is not like the icing on the cake. I have got friends working in certain travel processes that can actually get you boiling with anger, exasperation, and frustration. There are travel processes like the baggage process which is a calling process. You need to be extra worried and concerned about a person’s luggage who has got his luggage misplaced, courtesy the airlines’ irresponsibility, and assure him that come what may you will get him united with his luggage! This, after you have smilingly and patiently borne his angry outpourings.
So working in a travel line is not all that fun but then it is paying, so the people don’t mind getting thrashed and bored for a while at least! Well I personally feel that the people who have the time of their lives in the travel field are the travel journalists or the anchors of the travel programs. What can be better than babbling out a written script in the best costumes and the best locales!
