So much here rings true. It's easy to think of the negatives of international travel for work. I've bored people I'm sure with tails of how hotels, airports and coffee shops are pretty much the same wherever you are, there is no glamour no matter what my wife says!   But I believe only good can come from meeting with people from different countries and cultures, and doing business in different and challenging settings. 

Next time you're at an airport, delayed, and cursing your traveling agenda,, just think of how enriched you have also been through your experiences, and how much they can help you in your career and life in so many ways.
