Revisit someplace you've already been or go somewhere new?

Jump to last reply

Something I've been thinking about a lot lately, and wondering how others deal with it - how do you decide whether to revisit someplace you've already been vs. visiting someplace new? There are so many places in this world to see, and time and money are always a factor, so it makes sense in a way to visit somewhere new every time. Yet, I know many people love to return to places they've visited in the past. In light of that, do you tend to visit new destinations on your trips or revisit places you've already been and enjoyed?

I've been struggling with this lately because I've been wanting to revisit London and Paris, but (in my mind) it feels crazy for me to do so when I still haven't visited many other places on my travel wish list. Sure, I'm relatively young (32) so it's not as if I won't have other opportunities in the future to travel to new places. But, the same could be said about revisiting places - why revisit places now when I will hopefully have plenty of other opportunities in the future to see them again?

Anyways, just curious to hear people's thoughts as to what makes you decide to revisit a place versus going somewhere new.
