I can not even imagine life without travel. It is the thing that keeps me going and allows me to make it through the boring sameness of my job, for it is the job that pays for the travel. Without the thought that my next trip is only around the corner I think I would go crazy. I come alive when it is time to travel. I love it all, the planning, the airplane ride, the arrival, the hustle bustle of the airports and customs/immigration, the smells and sounds of the place I have arrived in. I love just walking the streets of the cities I visit, dropping into local pubs for a drink, browsing in the neighborhood shops, sitting at a sidewalk cafe watching the people. It doesn't matter if it is Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, or anywhere, I love it. I like the comment above, home is simply a stop over before the next departure. I consider the world and all the hotels in it my real home.

ohya, you could not have said it better! I hate my boring job too but it pays the bills and it's a means to get $ to travel. Planning is really a great part of travel-just thinking of where to go and what hotel to stay at, etc.

I'm just like the rest of you. And I just found this forum yesterday. I've been online for hours. Now I know I have to have a home computer.

Passion For Travel
Posts: n/a
Like doc, I am limited right now so live vicariously through your travel tales. I love the anticipation and planning and believe it is good therapy! However, for me there is a fine line between the therapy of spending time on this site and being in denial or avoiding something I should be tending to. I'm glad someone else gets such a thrill out of dreaming about faraway places. I tried to share it with my husband and he told me point blank he is not interested and it bores him hearing about it. Oh, well, my passion isn't necessarily everyone else's passion. I once asked him what he would like to see if we went to Europe. I meant like landmarks, art, cathedrals, etc. He replied, "I'd like to see some of my people." meaning possible distant relatives who have the same last name. There are some folks who have the same last name who have a B&B in Ireland. I think we have different goals.
