In late January and early February, I was on the Amtrak train multiple times for work – visiting the campuses and talking with other people I work with but don’t work near. I like traveling on the train – especially beautiful, comfortable, clean ones with great views out the window.
And wi-fi of course!
I started both trips at the very early hours – before it was light. I got loads and loads of work done
And some knitting too:
When I have these kinds of business trips, it’s important (at least to me) that I also get something out of my time on the road. It’s just crazy to get off the transport, go to a hotel, do the business thing, go back to the transport and go home. That’s nuts.
So, I found a fun beachy town where the train stop was and luckily Amtrak was happy to store my bags behind the desk. So, it was just me and my wallet and camera again.
So here are all the photos from my day of wandering around Solana Beach. That’s a couch of succulents!
A pretty wall with bamboo behind and flowers.
A very happy statue.
The cart at the flower shop.
Across the road and down the hill was the beach park.
It was a lovely creative wandering day. I Lyfted to the hotel and curled up to sleep early to get ready for the meetings the next day. This is how to do business trips.
