Had a similar mindset at first, it’s nice but when you have a mountain of work waiting for you after client meetings that take all day, you’ll actively try to avoid it....

I’ve always found this funny. Generally the junior who want to travel are stuck in the office (I remember thinking how cool it would be). And the senior people who travel a lot wish they weren’t! The reality (as always) is somewhere in-between. Being away from family (more of an gripe as you get older), the 4am alarms, delays, etc. get really really tiresome. But every once in a while you’re not flying into Midwest cookie cutter airport, but into Shanghai or Sydney or Paris or Seoul and you think how cool it is. As ever, the grass is always greener (and every once in a while it is).
