This is for all my fellow budget travellers (including myself) who can always do with a free / paid for vacations.
No you don’t need rich benevolent relatives or wait to win a free trip in any random quiz contest. All you need to do is to find an official conference in an exotic location, convince your boss that is important for him to attend it and then pile on so of much work (marked super urgent) on his desk that he is unable to attend. Post that, per the comic below, pray and concentrate all your positive energy(chi), that your boss sends you in his place. 🙂
- Save paid leaves for the personal holiday.
- Save money for the personal holiday.
- Visit a new exotic location (as these conferences always tend to happen at such places) and enjoy the expensive properties.
- A local sight-seeing tour is also built-in with the comforts of a guide and a bus.
- Eat and drink to your heart’s content, as all bills will eventually find their way to another bank account and not yours.
Aahhh.. I could do with one of these right now… 🙂
