Adrienne: So, Lisa, I see your suitcase out. You are going on a trip.
Lisa: I’m going to Taiwan on a business trip.
Adrienne: A business trip. How do you feel about taking business trips?
Lisa: I love getting out of London for, you know, three or four days and staying at a nice hotel (somewhere in Europe or America) and taking a flight somewhere.
Adrienne: So you like to travel?
Lisa: I love travelling.
Adrienne: You don’t mind staying in different hotels and travelling by plane all the time. Don’t you get bored?
Lisa: No, never. I mean, I don’t always like the whole process of checking in at the airport because it takes a lot of time but somehow I’ve got used to queuing and stay calm. Then there’s waiting for the plane…. It’s so long and tiring. Urn…, I always feel bored. But as soon as I’m in the plane and the doors close, I love it. No one can contact me. I can’t contact anyone else. There are free movies playing and the food comes. It’s wonderful.
Adrienne: So it seems you like living in a bubble. It’s like a minivacation.
Lisa: Well, when I go on business trips my working day is up to 14 hours. In terms of my workload, it’s a lot busier than when I am at home. But somehow it does feel like a mini-vacation. I stay in nice hotels. I get to take taxis everywhere, which I love to do. You know, I eat at great restaurants and meet with great people and do some important things so yeah, I really do love the whole aspect of a business traveller’s life.
Adrienne: So what do you do to try to avoid being bored when you’re waiting to board the plane?
Lisa: Well, the first thing I do is I never get to the airport too early, as I’m a frequent flier. I check in and then I, unfortunately, go to the duty-free shop. I say unfortunately, ‘cause it’s unfortunate for my credit card, not really unfortunate for me. I go to the duty-free shop. Normally I buy some perfume or cosmetics. Sometimes I go to the business lounge, where there are free drinks and food and if I do get to the airport a couple of hours earlier, I do some urgent work.
Adrienne: I see. Sounds like an exciting lifestyle.
Lisa: It’s fun. I wouldn’t give it up for anything else.
