road warriors

Having a work meeting at a café in Old Town. It's a good idea to get out of the office and be inspired - if you have an office to get out of. In a city like Stockholm there are many professionals that don't have an office. They move around cafés and restaurants and in public places. These so called road warriors have everything they need in their laptop computer and the cell phone makes them always available.

Love this post. Yes, that's how it is and you've illustrated it so beautifully in this cafe scene.

My professional goal in life, I'd really, really love to have a job like that! Minus the "always available" bit of course.

Jacob said...

Fascinating! And a great photo. I'd like to know what these two are "working" on...

I knew Gamla Stan without the road warriors especially a French restaurant "la Ronde".

I wish I could work that way!

I'd never heard of road warriors. How interesting!

Interesting story and nice photo.
I can't be a road warrior: age limits and I hate cellphones, mine included.

Paz said...

Nice photo. I like the idea of meeting in the cafes, etc...

Yes, what are they doing? I think it's some kind of 'creative work'.

Myself I'm not sure this would suit me. On the one hand: freedom and probably more efficient work done. On the other hand: I would miss my colleagues at the office. Could I do both?

@Vogon Poet: I like that: "I hate cellphones, mine included".

Good of you to stop by!
