[MUSIC] My name's Chuck. And I'm a principal with Golder Associates. This is David, and I'm in the commercial real estate business. First name John. I work for an investment management firm. I bet I travel maybe 60 days a year. I don't know, I have 3.5 million miles. Houston and Austin, go to Chicago, New York, Boston. I've been to Kuwait, I've been to Iran, I've been to Saudi Arabia, Zürich, Amsterdam, Barcelona Go to Atlanta, go to Washington, D.C., go to Boston, go to Denver. I enjoy travelling. I look at it as a necessary evil. Seeing new cities, seeing new cultures, trying new things. It's adventurous. Nothing can replace getting face to face and that's why I travel. [MUSIC] And so my Pre-trip routine is to wait to the last minute to pack. I mean, even sitting in the airport watching people can be kinda humorous. Yeah, you never wanna get in the line behind travellers with kids or old folks. The time on the plane In terms of little bit of forces isolation, you know some quite time. These days I try to use the airplane to read a book instead of doing work. I would say the other big sign of rookie travelers would be anyone who starts applauding when the plane lands on the runway. [APPLAUSE] One of the most bizarre things That I've encountered. The only confirmable reservation out was at least 90 days in the future. They threw me in immigration jail for four nights, and the infant [UNKNOWN] all over my jacket. It's always sunny at 35,000 At 35,000. The irony is that after you've been out on the road eating out every night, you have to come home and go out to eat with your wife. Well, I'm married to a flight attendant so she understands. They always tell me it's kinda nice when I go away. [LAUGH] Yeah I'm always excited to get home, to sleep in my own bed. It probably feels like I'm home when I get out of that freaking suit. I always unpack immediately when I get home. It's kind of like the end. [MUSIC] Actually I love traveling. I wouldn't change a thing. [MUSIC]
