A workation is a trip or vacation where you must perform some task for your regular work. Although you may be in a new or exotic locale, you may have to attend meetings, telecommute, or complete projects for your job. Depending on your job description, workations may or may not count against your vacation hours at work. If you are on a company planned workation, you will probably have to put work first and leisure activity second. Some companies have headquarters or meeting facilities in other cities and countries, requiring travel there for conferences, training, or special events. On a company-planned workation, you will likely work full days and have evenings and possibly weekends to yourself. The limited time available to you to relax on a workation can be used to your benefit. If you are unfamiliar with the city or country you are in, check local listings for nearby tours or sites you would like to visit. You can’t learn everything about a new place in a few free hours, but you can have unique experiences that give you a memorable perspective on the locale. Try to avoid tourist traps and look for local haunts and attractions instead. Remember to plan yourself time to just relax, as well; although you are technically on a vacation, you need to rest and prepare yourself for the work at hand.
