Not everyone travels for business, but if you do, I highly recommend working in some Business Trip Bonus Days whenever you can.

Don’t be afraid to hit up your local clients, suppliers or colleagues for ideas on how to spend your time. Their insider tips can help you experience aspects of a destination that you might not find on your own. And if you’re lucky, they might even offer to show you around.
