My time in Bolivia was a game of communication dominoes. One text message from a new PMI friend in Arequipa, Peru, to his PMI contact in Bolivia and a few days later I was dining with the La Paz PM community and discussing how they use current events to demonstrate project management techniques.
In PM terms, vacations are more predictive, and long-term travel is adaptive. One has a clearly defined scope and strict deadline (return ticket). The latter has a budget which you have to maximize in order to deliver an experience that satisfies the broad scope in the time allotted.
