I have done a variety of jobs from ones when you spend most of your time driving around the country meeting loads of people as a sales representative, to my present job when I travel to France about two or three times a year. This to me is ideal as it if fun and does not interfere with home life too much which travelling all the time does. regards robin.
I have to travel to work with oil companies in Norway (I’m in Norway as I write this), and with America (partculary Houston). As part of my work I have also worked with and visited Malaysia, Nigeria, Italy, India, Abu Dhabi and France.
There can be as much travel as you want when you are a researcher. You can go to conferences all over the world to present your work (I went to one in Australia last year), and you can also do a sort of exchange with other researchers where you go to their labs and do some work then they come back to your labs for a while.
