What I love about Europe
Well, it's "small". And I don't mean that in a pejorative way at all. I can't tell you how thankful I am for the fact that yesterday I took a plane to Copenhagen, met customers and partners and was back in Paris to sleep in my own bed. Today, I took the train to Cologne and spent the afternoon with an important customer and am writing this blog post on the train ride back to Paris. And, I will sleep in my own bed tonight.
Everything - and I mean everything - is within a two hour flight. What's not to like about that?
50% of my business is within a two hour flight and the other 50% of my business is - well - much further away?! Hmmm, let me think about that for a second...
I guess a picture is worth a thousand words, eh?
p.s. Did I mention that I boarded the train 5 minutes before it left the station and no one said a peep? That I didn't have to go through a pat-down search after the metal detector because there was no metal detector?! Oh, and the bar cart is being wheeled through and I don't have to pay for my drinks? Sorry, gotta go now...
