Four days in Kansas

Plane ticket: $340

Hotel room: $80

Six pack of beer from my hometown: $8

Wireless Internet in the middle of Kansas: Priceless

Traveling for business is not glamorous, at least not in my profession. But it does offer a chance to see parts of the country I would never visit otherwise. It's a chance to break away from my regular routine and the chair I sit in 8 hours a day. It's a chance to meet new people in new places and prove I can navigate in a strange environment (both literally and figuratively). But in a few days I'll be more than ready for that trip home again!
