Need Help Fall/Winter Schedule.
Well, when I agreed to this arraignment, we agreed on 3-5 trips a year.
Now understand I am responsible for Oklahoma now and the longer I'm away the weaker the territory gets.
Last year was 3 trips and worked out great. I'm already been on 3 trips this year.
Looks like in the fall they want to add another trip.
Late Oct - Brussels.
Over Christmas/New Years - Vienna and Rome.
The above 2 I have anticipated.
Now they want to add another trip over Thanksgiving. No problem with being gone over Turkeyday, most other countries not a holiday at all.
Looks like I get the choice of Barcelona. Beijing. Amsterdam, Cairo or Berlin.
Been to all before, I don't speak Spanish but a workshop is needed in Buenos Aires, Its been 10 years but would love to go back.
What do you all think? I can just stay home for the holidays?
Well, PTJD it sounds like they are spreading you a little thin. I haven't been to any of those places but if I was going to pick one then I think it would be Cairo. My oldest daughter is infatuated with Egypt and I would figure out some way to take her with me. However, it is you we are talking about here. What does your wife think about you being gone then? Or will she get to go with you? I would think it might be fun to get away over the holidays and avoid all of the family crap.
Sanity is overrated. I'd rather be happy.
Yeah she gets to go once or twice a year. She was in Paris and Geneva this summer and plans to go to Rome over Christmas.
I'm sure she would gladly go over thanksgiving but that means I need to schedule a "Off" day so we can have fun.
Well maybe a JS picture at the Pyramids for The Wiz might make it worth it!
Amsterdam all the way. It is a different place everytime I go. Great mix of people there. To me, it is the richest in the European experience.
"I would think it might be fun to get away over the holidays and avoid all of the family crap. "
+1 on this. Holidays are too close together and we always try to be "out of town" for at least one of them. My vote is Barcelona.
I would vote for Barcelona PT. Great food, and La Toja.
Thanks for your input, I really love Barcelona but was just there in April? Amsterdam is always great but kinda cold late November.
I'll wait till Ms. PTJD gets back to discuss with her. Oh good to see some of you from the travel forum!
Oh Hitt, its not so much I'm spread thin, our company has 5 trainers living in Europe and we hired a 3rd this year for Singapore and have 2 others in Hong Kong. Sadly I'm the one with medical credentials and we usually have a better showing of Doctors and Nurses when I do the workshops, not that I do any better of a job at it.
OK, looks like Amsterdam, need to iron out the small details.
