A career as a humanitarian worker can bring many things – hard work, wonderful adventures, personal growth, and heartbreak at the scope of suffering in this world. For many, it also means a lot of time spent on the road. Sometimes this travel is international – while your friends back home are collecting furniture and other trappings of “normal life,” you end up collecting stamps in your passport. Sometimes it’s domestic – long days and weeks away from home overseeing disaster relief efforts, running workshops, and implementing aid projects in remote areas of your own country. For humanitarian workers, traveling can be exhilarating and enriching. However, frequent travel can also be stressful.
