Back in the 2010s, I averaged almost 100,000 miles a year on business travel. I went to endless Linux, open-source, and cloud conferences. When COVID-19 hit, I went from flying around the country and to Europe every few weeks to driving to the grocery store every few weeks. Now, I’m back on the road — and in the air — again. So far, in 2022, I’ve been to Boston, Valencia, Spain, and Austin for work. I expect to finally make it to Dublin, Ireland, and numerous spots in the US before the year is over.
So, do I recommend traveling for business again? Hell, no. It’s not safe out there. It really isn’t. It only seems safe.
