I've been taking a break from visiting corporate headquarters and instead have been cycling to ski resorts, spa towns, castles and fortifications in France, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. Such fun was had that I'll be doing more of the same in 2010. Is there a connection between ski resorts and the corporate world? Many resorts and their hotels are venues for hosting company seminars, retreats for senior management, as well as staging employee "bonding" outings. Companies, via corporate incentive programs, also reward employees with trips to ski resorts for reaching sales targets.

This year I've been doing a blog about some of my travels and you can read it by clicking this link:

I'm also hot on the trail of French military engineer Marquis de Vauban.
