How Has Travel Affected You?

I don’t like to travel mostly because I hate packing and I hate having to travel in a bus or a train. I would prefer the bus instead of the train but if it is a long distance travel then I would rather not go at all. But the last couple of office trips I took were very nice. I had gone to Chennai for a week in 2015 and to Gurgaon in 2016 for 2 weeks.

Firstly, I took airplane flights for my departure and arrival, courtesy the company who booked and paid for my tickets. Secondly I had never been to either city and rather enjoyed my stay there. My stay in Chennai was not a great place but it was alright – I got a room for myself in an apartment, with a tv (very old one) and cable and free wifi. In Gurgaon it was a mini-hotel so I got a big room with free wifi and a nice flat screen tv.

I went to see some bars and a few malls and had a nice time. I also realized that I could actually live in these cities if I wanted to and I got a job there. Ofcourse they are a lot more expensive than my hometown but I could live in either place. Especially in Gurgaon as it is the hub of Indian microbreweries and there are tons of pretty women all around.

  1. Would it be very expensive? I had done a quick napkin calculation and saw that white rent jumps by upto 50% and home expenses by 30% the salary jumps by atleast 150%

    Also, there is this thing about location that makes things possible from a career perspective. While work might be the same.. Exposure and growth is so much better when u have a similar crowd.

    From a travel perspective… It changes me a lot just watching how people are in other places and how they interact. :)
