Wonderful colleagues and people there. Delicious spicy food (I love hawker food). It was an "aggressive listening" tour to observe the business climate, make sales calls, and be the main presenter at two customer seminars. Plenty of follow-up action items to do. Home office people either do not travel enough to meet and actively listen to the "troops" or show up as "seagulls" (squawk around like they're very important, leave a mess, and then bug out). All I know is not to be a seagull and follow up on agreed upon actions. Your word is critical when you travel and trust is everything.
The most difficult thing about travel personally is being away from family. Thank goodness for video calls but time differences can be an obstacle.
Love is just a word until someone comes and gives it meaning.
