Make every moment count. That is the best way to enjoy life. So, you are on a business trip out in an exotic place, or just a place you’ve never been before. How do you ensure that your trip isn’t just productive but adventurous, fun, and rejuvenation?

This article will open your mind to endless possibilities of fun on a business trip. Even with your Faris accounting presentation scheduled, here are the tips for creating the ultimate work-cation.


  • Pocket internet


Since you need to create more time for fun, get your work done faster. As you get ready for your presentation, go to the quiet part of the park or plug on your headphones and connect your computer or iPad to your portable internet and get to work. Since hotels don’t always have internet (the best internet), you can create your mobile hotspot that allows connection to several devices at once. You can travel with an unlocked phone and then get a local SIM card.


  • Be local


You have the option of staying in that fancy hotel room. But, it gives you less time to explore your surroundings. If you’d like to learn more about the local cultures and an opportunity to make life-long friends, try Couchsurfing.

The best part is that several Couchsurfing hosts will give you a real bed to sleep in.


  • Take advantage of virtual guides


Don’t you think that the massive travel books belong to the stone age? If you can work from a coffee shop or a park, why not use that device to find out more about the town.

If you are afraid of getting lost, or you are exploring deeper parts of the town, share your travel itinerary with your friends, family, or the locals in the hotel, or the ones you are working with.


  • Carry backup electronics


If you will be overseas for long, and if you need to get work done in a short time, you might want to carry extra battery packs, replacement earphones, and power banks.


  • Use Private browsing


If you are in a new place, but you want to travel by air to a new city for personal business, you can save money by browsing privately.

You may not know this but, browsing through unsecured browsers means that the airlines or the booking agents have access to cookies – this is a record of your browsing history. The booking agents or the airlines only need your browsing history to hike your flight fares.


  • Learn the basics of the language


If you want to experience the beauty of a foreign country, you might want to explore your linguistic abilities. Basic phrases like saying ‘hello,’ ‘excuse me’ or ‘thank you’ will help you get help if you get stuck.


  • Privacy protection


Stay safe when traveling by keeping all your important documents at your fingertips. You should also set passcodes and encrypt your devices. You should also use VPN but ensure that you log out every time.
