For those of us in the tech sector, jet travel is part of the deal. It can be time consuming and mind numbing. Everybody seems to have a few tricks up their sleeves to make their own trips more manageable. Some share tips with their friends. CTP’s own Robert Christiansen, a Doppler podcast co-host, goes a step farther: He’s interviewed dozens of travelers and packed years’ worth of insights into a book he’s calling “The Zen of High-Performance Travel.”
Our panelists chat about some of Robert’s travel do’s and don’ts, as well as our own. Like this one: Do you know which cluster of seats is the most likely to have an empty seat next to them? Answer: The aisle and window seats in the exit row in the middle of the plane. (The row’s middle seat doesn’t recline, and who wants to sit there?)
We talk about things like storing an extra flight bag in your vehicle, keeping your cool during delays, getting dropped off at “Arrivals” when you’re leaving during busy times, and always making sure to pack those food supplements. Things to consider when you’re spending time in the puffy kind of clouds.
