Business travel carries with it its own special set of needs compared to traveling, for example, on a family vacation. The business traveler is going to not need to being a pop-tent and a portable stove, if you know what I mean.
Typical gear that a business man or woman may bring with them include a nice set of clothes–comfortable enough for travel and for sitting on airplanes for hours at a time, but yet also professional enough to meet with clients at airports for pickup, etc., before being able to visit a hotel and get changed.
When it comes to packing for a stay in a hotel room, many business executives will choose to travel with some kind of workout device that they can use to help stay in shape when on the road. This might include a set of water-fillable weights that are used like dumbbells. Other options include workout tools like the ‘Perfect Pushup’ – a small device that aids in completing more strenuous push-ups, but very nicely fits into a small carry-on suitcase or duffel bag. These small workout aids can be a great encouragement to the traveler who finds it more challenging to stay in shape while on the road.
A good bathroom set for shaving and teeth-brushing and showering is always a welcomed addition to any traveler’s gear as there is no better feeling than getting in the warm shower after sitting on cramped airplanes for hours at a time. When traveling on business, first and foremost, make sure to plan with the end in mind. What are you going to be doing on your travel? How much downtime will you have and how you will occupy it? These are a couple of the most relevant questions that can be asked when preparing to travel for business. Pack and plan accordingly.
