Business trips are usually pretty great. You get to get out the office, you can expense everything, no one is looking over your shoulder, and you can expense everything. Recently my work travel took me to New York City from San Francisco. I decided to book my room on Airbnb as to save my company a little money and try something new. Oh. My. God what a good idea.
The place I booked was in Brooklyn as I like the scene and a few of my high school buddies live the hood. When I got to my apartment, a three bedroom condo, I learned it was being rented by two other people as well. One girl was a traveler from Australia and the other girl was a traveler from Argentina. Yeah my business trip just turned into a Three’s Company vacation with an Aussie girl and an Argentinian girl. And it was cheaper!
All I have to say is the next five days were an absolute blast. I think. It’s kind of a blur. I had two adventurers to hang with, make breakfast, go to bars, explore the city, play drinking games, and wake up with headaches. The only thing that suffered was my work. Oh well.
