Frequent travelers: repeat trips or new destinations?

Jump to last reply

As I'm getting older, I'm thinking about limited future trips. There are places I haven't visited, such as Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia--or places I haven't visited since the 60's, when the tourism infrastructure was shaky and there wasn't much in the way of amenities, such as Turkey, the former Yugoslavia, etc.

Then there are places I've visited more than once, or even frequently. Spain, Germany, the U.K., Austria, Switzerland. I've found lately that I want to go back to them rather than branching out to new destinations. I especially like going to places where I speak the language, such as the U.K., Spain, and Germany.

I know that some people love Paris and return to it frequently. (My nephew in Seattle bought his house from an older couple who wanted to move to New York so that it would be easier to fly to Paris.)

How about the rest of you frequent travelers? Do you choose a new destination for each trip or do you return to your favorite places repeatedly.

P.S. I think my next trip will be to the Alps an/or Dolomites. But that won't be for more than a year, when I hope the exchequer will be refilled or at least not as pitiable as it is this year.
