You have to work your butt off before you go.
You have to work your butt off when you get back.
Not being able to speak the language
Packing and Unpacking
Coming home from a beautiful place
Not being able to play Ice Hockey
Living out of a suit case
Sharing a room with kids
You always forget something
Having to buy gifts for relatives
Having to learn a new subway system. I just figured out New York's.
The cab ride to and from the airport
Tipping the bell hop
Not being able to get the great food in New York
Never being able to close your suit case on the way home
Worrying about getting your stuff robbed
Having to go to the bathroom on plane and the food cart is in the way
Security Screening at Airport
