“As someone who edits a travel site, my business trips are business trips, and my vacations are — business trips,”says Peter J. Frank, editor-in-chief of Concierge.com (Condé Nast Traveler Online).

In an article by Frank (as told to Chris Elliot) for the New York Times, on what I’d like to call the hidden truths of being a travel journalist, he talks about the “torture” he has to go through in his job.

A peak into the non-glamourous part of a travel journalist’s life at one of the industry’s leading portals, it’s a great story; but not to worry, its reality doesn’t bite.

P.S. For what it’s worth, Happy Valentines Day.
