Few businesses today are able to exclude travel entirely. We are interested in any professional making his or her way successfully in the world, whether that professional is a jet-setter or a shop owner. Nonetheless, most professionals, sooner or later, will pack the ol’ kit bag, whether to attend an annual convention or trade show, or simply in the normal course of conducting work. Hence, this is a blog that features business travel prominently, even while including much more. Whether destinations, lodging, luggage, or flight, concerns of the business traveler are concerns of Professionals Around the World. We write about those areas most likely to interest business owners and those who travel professionally, although the how-to portion of the blog certainly extends far past that, to any consumer, retail, or home-based concern, and even beyond.
