|Making the best of my office space|
When you travel like we do you get used to having to create an office in all sorts of nooks and crannies. Depending on how much travel there's been and what's available to us, we can go from 5 star to
This week's office comes courtesy of a teeny tiny hotel room at an IBIS Budget in the streets of almost-inner Sydney.
I don't travel light. In my head I have a lovely light laptop that fits neatly in a handbag and weighs a gram. The reality is I have a big old laptop that has zero battery life, shuts down if you touch it, requires an external keyboard and mouse, and requires a suitcase to cart it around.
Let's just say the IBIS desk would better suit an iPad than my dinosaur set up.
Anyway, it's working for me and I'm growing to love this week's home away from home.
When I'm searching for an office nook I look for:
- Access to power
- Two power points for laptop and phone charging
- Free WiFi
- Enough space for my screen and keyboard
- A nearby toilet
- A window to stare out of as I gather my thoughts (preferably with something worth looking at)
I type this as I stare at a KFC and watch the steady flow of cars drive down the Princes Highway.
I hear the planes soar overhead as they take their passengers to exotic destinations.
Sunrise is on TV in the background so we can watch the lovely Isaiah interviewed after his X Factor win last night.
I sip my green tea and think about making a Vita-Weat and cream cheese for breakfast. I try not to think about the McDonalds sitting at the other side of the hotel with hotcakes calling my name.
