We believe Jack Nicholson said it best: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” To avoid a similar fate, IgoUgo 9-to-5ers combine work and play for an ingenious, budget-friendly solution—traveling for “work” on the company dime.

AgedTo Perfection’s subjugation to work-oriented activities in sunny San Jose had her “slaving away” through her trip. Yet she managed to find the silver lining in all those meetings with trips to the historical Dolce Hayes Mansion and the Viaggio Ristorante Mediterraneo.

Southern belle vampirefan and longtime member Jeffrey both found their inner child during working hours: the former befriended Anaheim’s famed mouse, while the latter journeyed to Mickey’s Florida abode. But, alas, these kids-at-heart had to satisfy their grown-up sides too.

We smell a conspiracy amongst notso62 and JayBroek, because really, what sane company sends employees to Europe’s capital of debauchery, Amsterdam? On his behalf, JayBroek did claim to spend the time “pining for home and the Blonde.” Geneva’s a city that sounds more like a destination for business, but girlfromals turned the potentially “stuffy behind-the-scenes business trip to the U.N.” into 10 days of tasting and spending (and, oh yeah, working too).
