1. Reach out to your connections
Whether you reach out through LinkedIn or social media, or simply chat to the people you’re in work or meetings with, suggest a casual drink or a bite to eat at the end of the day and see how much it can transform your time away. You’ll be surprised by how quickly you can find a companion, particularly if your connections are also away from home.
Something as simple as enjoying a drink and a chat at the end of the day can improve your business travel experience immeasurably and help to combat loneliness. Try to steer the conversation away from the business to allow yourself a little of the work-life balance that you can miss out on when you’re travelling.
