Has anybody had a job involving lots of travel? I have a choice of two jobs. One is a normal office job, five days a week at the same desk. The other would be maybe 2-3 days close to home and 2-3 days travelling the country and staying in hotels. In theory I find the travel element exciting. I love driving--it's my alone time--I really love staying in hotels, and I like variety in my job. But I wonder if the reality will be that it wears off, and the lack of routine and living out of a suitcase will get to me. I've never had a job with travel so I won't know until I try it. The other key difference is the travel job pays £5k more, because they understand it's not for everyone. But both salaries are fine for me, so this isn't a dealbreaker. Both jobs are in different departments of the same company: reputable, well established, multi-billion pound turnover. I want a long-term career there so I don't want to mess it up by taking the 'wrong' option. What would you do?
