Traditional travel boredom- is this common with age?

I only get bored when I have to go to the same places over and over again for business trips. Or visiting relatives - now THAT can be boring!

But for trips that I choose on my own, I never go to the same place twice...no matter how much I loved it. Maybe I will revisit them sometime in the future, but I want to see as many new places as possible. I'll never get bored of that!

We are 60yrs old and never tire of travel! It is still our passion. We also never go to the same place twice. Our problem now is that we still have so much of the world to see but would also like to again see those sights of 20-30 yrs ago.

Dr Phil says that people who are bored are usually boring people. Don't flame me, he said it. I just turned 48, my husband 52 and we are always open for adventures. I think if you are out of shape, then it's hard to have energy to do a variety of things. For instance,in S Africa, we climbed up 2 mountains- how stunning the views! Hiking/walking through an area is the way to get a feel for it. We search out fun people to meet on trips- we get more ideas for places to see that way. Traveling is tedious at airports, etc. but if you can't roll with it, you should stay home. Use the internet to talk to people who've been there, not just a brochure or an agency. I agree with one post- doing the same places, same time, etc year after year would kill me.
