Business travel doesn’t always have mean to work.  In fact, if you plan ahead and schedule your stay for the weekend: It can be a vacation.  If you’re not lent the time it takes to really relax, at least plan to make your business travel impactful.  Here are 6 ways you take the time to relax on your next business trip:

Make it affordable

Have a conference in Hawaii? Hawaiian flights are way more affordable with ticket deal sites like Expedia or Travelocity. They make sourcing the best budget reflecting tickets quite the simple task. Save on the cost of tickets and rooms to increase the available time you have in the island. That is, if you were coming of  your own needful will. If you were summoned by an employer and they don’t pay the cost, it’s better to have doable last minute costs than not be able to attend.

Take your meeting to the beach

Don’t hold up in a frumpy office on a business trip. Take your meeting to an outdoor beachside cafe that has wifi connection. That way you will have the ocean as the backdrop of this meeting. The peace of this most natural of white noise sources will make your meeting minutiae pass with natural fluidity. Then, when all the work is done, you are already at your beach destination. Bring your swimsuit along in your work bag. You can go straight to the water and waste no time on cashing in your downtime.

Local networking is good for business

Your team should agree to do some local networking. Have another meeting you need to do at night or early in the morning? Consider doing it at a local business oriented restaurant or in the lobby of the hotel one or more of you are staying at. Your presence should be non-invasive, but the scene you construct will be enough to showcase your brand to the locals. Consider asking the hotel staff if they would like to keep some of your information.

In other words, a good productivity comes from a good stage to conduct your performance in.

Everyone loves coffee

There is a common correlation between business personnel and coffee drinkers. If this fits your team, you might like to conduct some of your meetings in local coffee shops.  Not only does it help everyone break out of routine, it’s a great way to take in the local scene on a time constraint.

For that business conference in Hawaii? Lion Coffee in Honolulu. For a brief stop-in, Lion Coffee has some menu lattes and cold brews for the price of McDonald’s regular coffee. This would be a perfect place for you to relax and prepare your presentation before meeting up with the rest of your team at your respective conference or other event.

Treat yourself

There is nothing more important than eating your way around a new place.  Even if you’re on a tight timeline, you’ve got to make the time to eat.  The fact that Julia Childs wrote an entire book around eating and travel should be proof enough.

Lunch outside the commercial scene

You may be tempted to keep everything convenient and eat only chain food while on this trip. That’s fine if you like that best. For those who are always interested in getting a taste of what the local land has to offer, do a Google search to find the unique cuisine around you.

Not convinced?  Check out this video from squareship.com to get a taste of what it’s like to eat your way around the world.   Chances are, you’ll quickly get a craving for one of those local specialties.

Conclusion

No matter where you travel, go with the mindset that all the means will lead to a productive end. Make your experience of the island reflect upon your work to instill passion in both. You will come away with a new aesthetic. It will show in your progress reports.
