Travelling for work may sound very glamorous, but everyone who does it on a regular basis knows how lonely it really is. Your friends and family may be green with envy when you’re dashing to Heathrow airport to hop on yet another flight to yet another far-flung city, but really, what’s so great about watching TV you don’t understand and having another club sandwich because that’s the only thing you really like on the room service menu? Sure, you’ve racked up a gazillion British Airways frequent flyer points, but believe me, it’s b-o-r-i-n-g. Or should I say; was boring?
On Triplife.com, the networking website ‘where travellers click’, you can find people who are in the same boat (or plane or hotel for that matter) at the same time you are. It’s free and easy to join and all you have to do is enter your travel itinerary and voila, you have found yourself a travel buddy. At least that's the idea. You could hook up before your trip and travel to the airport together, arrange to sit next to each other on the plane, share a cab, work out, meet for dinner, drinks or both. Whatever you fancy. No more lonely nights channel surfing in your hotel room. And if you’re really lucky, you might even meet Mr or Mrs Right. Who knows? Provided you’re single, of course. Everything is possible. So no need to bring your book or newspaper to dinner anymore and it sure as heck beats spending the evening with the remote control.
I don’t know about you, but I'm really looking forward to my next business trip—although I will miss watching Rambo in Korean.
