In this unusual memoir and travelogue, a longtime employee of 3M climbs up the corporate ladder and starts traveling the world-for free. Author Randall L. Erickson, PhD, recalls his adventures of traveling throughout the world. His looks back on being named an honorary member of the House of Lords, meeting the pope one Easter Sunday in Rome, and touring the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
Those stories are just the beginning; he also shares the hilarious tales of how he pretended to be a male prostitute in Madrid and how he was saved from a Chinese prison because he smoked cigarettes. He also provides practical guidance, such as how to find a western toilet in Japan, how to dry your underwear when your luggage doesn't arrive, and tips on experimenting with new foods. Erickson had such a variety of experiences while traveling on business that his wife dubbed him "the Forrest Gump of 3M." After hearing about his adventures, there's no doubt that you'll agree with her; get some practical advice for having fun while abroad in Traveling Business Class.
