One thing I have learned to do over the years is take advantage of weddings to travel when I can. It’s a relatively easy excuse to get time off from your boss: “I don’t want to miss work, but one of my best friends is getting married.” On top of that, weddings are fun. It’s nice to see different parts of the world and it’s fun to see your friends get hitched, eat, drink, and be merry. And no one is ungrateful you traveled a long way to attend. New York to Sydney? Piece of cake.
