I love being a locum, on most days. This is definitely one of those days!! I am so happy I chose to become a Locum CRNA.
I am not traveling extravagantly; but, Francisco and I were able to take airline miles, bumped from flight $$ and get our coach tickets to Paris! Ok, so we spent ~$150 on air United tickets.
We packed our baggage (you can see my SwissGear luggage on the store of the website). We used the United Airlines mileage card to sit in the club for our forever long layover to have drinks and food. We did do Starbucks as we went for our walk in the airport just before getting on the airplane.
Unfortunately, I forgot my most loved wired Apple headphones in the car on the way to the airport. Because I worked hard the last two weeks, I decided to get my first ever set of AirPods! I’ve always liked the fit of apple headphones and now I like these with no wires!!!!
We are about to land and we’ll have some time to clear customs, baggage and coffee!!!! Then, it’s off to the train to London.
Ok, so travel or really time off is a benefit of being a Locum CRNA but it’s about using the leverage of your travels as well. If using a credit card are you taking the benefits from that? If at a hotel, did you add your rewards number to the reservation? The only rewards I’ve found I can’t get are the car rental rewards as the reservations with Avis was at a higher cost for adding the rewards.
We also have two free nights in the Best Western because I had some nights that a hospital put me up at the BW. So, we are paying food, fun, & 8 of 10 days in an AirBNB.
This isn’t to brag about vacation, but it is to tell you that you can take more vacation, plan, and have some rewards that make it more affordable!
