Airports, hotels and ballrooms are my life-venues.
How do I cope? Through a sense of purpose, laced with intense curiosity. When I visit a new place, I'm always looking to learn something new about its culture. This drives me out of my room and into the wonderful world of the new.
When I sit on a plane, I'm interested in the person sitting next to me. This drives me from an iPod induced state of (rude) silence and into a conversation that may very well be life changing.
This picture (above) is the theme for one of Copenhagen's famous contemporary art museums. It sums up a fabu philosophy about overcoming the fear of the unknown -- and turning painful business travel into joyous globe trotting.
