I specifically moved jobs 2 years ago to one with a UK HQ and mostly UK work. I'd spent the last 20+ years travelling the world on business and it loses its exotic edge pretty quickly.... I've worked abroad on ex-pat assignments and that is fine (US, Mexico, HK, Tokyo) - but in my last job I was doing the Euro circuit (Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, Warsaw, Frankfurt, Dublin, Milan, Moscow, Antwerp) like a treadmill and that's a killer.
In my current job I've spent 3 days in NY in 2 years. Thats it. Luxury! Wouldnt go back to a business travel lifestyle now for anything. Love being home with wofe and kids every evening/weekend.
