One of the things that made last year so interesting at work was the amount of travel that I did. For the previous 8 years, I flew maybe once per year for work, either to visit remote offices or for conferences. Last year was a bit crazier–I think I had eight business trips between April and October.

This year’s been a bit tamer so far, with only one trip to New York and one to California, but the slow stretch is over now–I’m spending all week next week in Mountain View, and then heading to Boulder at the end of the month for three days. I’ll be back in California for almost two weeks late in July and early in August, and then I’ll probably be in New York in early September.

This will be my first trip to California in a while where I’ll have some free time; if anything cool is happening next week, please let me know :-).
