Sometimes business occurs when expected.  And sometimes it doesn't happen. All sorts of combinations too.  For a variety of reasons.

If you are doing any business on vacation, you ARE NOT ON VACATION, you're just working from somewhere else.

Vacation?  on trips I do get about as much as I can handle, sometimes it takes a hike to a better side of the mountain to get cell and data coverage.

While I'm away I try to just manage my current accounts & deals but if someone comes to me I'll have an initial conversation with them & then I'll help them out when I get back. Inevitably anytime we go away a plethora of business comes our way.

Will,

For us, it is not about cell reception.  It is about talking and making friends.  As we were checking out from our hotel in Burgundy, the owner asked us what we do.  When we told him, it turned into a business possibility for us.  A

A fair amount.  Overseas is great because you can do business while people are asleep and they do stuff while you're asleep.  Doesn't interrupt the vacation.
