Ever dream of traveling the world for fun and profit? Do you imagine tropical islands, palm trees, white sandy beaches, friendly natives and slow, quiet days with the occasional phone call or email? Forget about it. A job that requires travel can be one of the most frustrating, arduous, lonely and downright dangerous ways to make a living. Crazy customers, unfamiliar food (if you want to call it that), filth, disease, insane drivers and increasingly difficult air travel make the Road Warrior life a living hell. Then, once you get there you have to do your job! What if they won't let you leave? Can you plan a cunning escape without getting caught and dragged back to the salt mines? What does it take to make the world go 'round? Hard work, perseverance, courage, and a wife and kids at home with a mortgage driving you to earn a buck. The money is good, but what will happen when you set foot on that plane is anyone's guess. Just pray that you can stand the 14 hour flight with nothing to do while you sit in the dark all the way across the Pacific. And when you get there can you handle the occasional worker unrest, riots in the streets, tear gas or today's guided missile attack? But at least someone else is paying the bill, and if you are clever you can live a pretty good life on someone else's dime, as long as you don't fudge the expense report and get fired for ripping off the company.
