Traveling for work
I think that the best part of my job is all of the traveling that I get to do.
Sometimes, I will be away from home for weeks at a time, I mostly stay in hotels but sometimes, I will get a rental house if it is an extended stay.
One of the best places I have ever stayed while traveling for work was a condo on the beach. I was able to stay there for 3 months! I started to get homesick but there were so many amazing things about this condo. I had never used a smart thermostat until I stayed in this condo. I got familiar with the smart thermostat quickly. During my stay, I would be away for most of the day, so it was nice to be able to be in control of the temperature of the condo when I returned from a long day of work. Being able to control the temperature in the condo was nice because the weather in the region where I was working was very warm. During the day I would spend a lot of time outdoors for work. Coming back to a condo with the AC blasting was ideal. I didn’t want to use energy to cool the condo all day, because that would not be energy efficient of me. I decided that I was going to learn how to use the smart thermostat in the house and use it to my benefit. I got so used to the smart thermostat that I even had one installed in my own house once I returned.
