How do you deal with relatives and friends who are jealous of your traveling?

Jump to last reply

One sad part (or difficult I should say) with travel is dealing with relatives or others who are jealous or nasty because we travel. My mother-in-law just **hates** that we travel and complains about it endlessly. She goes on and on about how we waste our money and how we should have had children to spend money on instead of wasting it on "something stupid" like trips.
She insists my husband call her every 3 days when we are on foreign trips and every night when we travel in the USA. She complains that we don't get her nice enough presents on our trip. She asks me over and over "what is wrong with your life that you want to escape it all the time"? It doesn't matter what I say, it never gets through to her. She also insists my husband take her on weekend trips without me at least twice a year (which he does) but even on those she's full of complaints about how he doesn't show her things that are as interesting as the things he and I see on our trips. I also have trouble with my 3 best friends with our trips.....one never mentions them and shows no interest in them no matter where we go so instead I listen to her talk about her crafts and we go to movies with no mention of our month in Sweden at all. Another friend seems to feel he must top any trip we take....so if we get back from 2 weeks in Bali then a month later he leaves for 3 weeks in Burma with a flood of postcards coming my way. This has happened every year for the past 8 years now. I wish I knew people I could talk to about travel like people on this board talk to each other. I listen to my friend above talk at great length about his trips but he has never asked me one thing about our trips.
