Do you feel you have travelled enough at this point in your life?

No, not at all. I have never traveled outside of the Americas and I refuse to be satisfied until I make it to Europe and Asia.

nah, I need more traveling in my life

SuperMouse's avatar

I am happy with the places I have been so far, but there are many, many more places I would like to see.

DominicX's avatar

I’ve been to 16 countries so far and I’ve been on every continent except South America, Antarctica, and Asia. I would like to visit South America, Asia, and maybe some more places in the U.S. But I think I’ve traveled quite a bit for only being 17.

Since I’m obsessed with taking photos, I plan on taking plenty more. When I went to Kenya in 9th grade, I hadn’t really developed pun not intended my love of taking photos so I didn’t take many; it was all my dad. Now I feel like I have to make up for that. :P

Too frequent travel can wear you down, but I don’t think there is a saturation point for travel in a lifetime. From the ancient ruins of Greece, Italy and Turkey to exotic beaches in the South Pacific…interesting people, customs and cuisine…how can one possibly see enough. Provided, of course, the travel is spread out to include adequate recovery time.

I haven’t been off the eastern coast of America, so no, I don’t.

No way, I want some world travel.

I second @whatthefluther! There is no such thing as too much travel. Judicious spacing out is sometimes good for resting. Travel makes home seem even more special.

No. I wish to travel, but we’ll wait until we’re done having children and our children can enjoy it. And I so cannot wait until we’re in our 40s and going off without the kids, to have fun together.

YARNLADY's avatar

No, I would love to travel. I want to buy an RV and travel all over the US and Canada.

DarkScribe's avatar

I have traveled enough to get me here, but that’s all.

I still have both places I have yet to see and places that I wish to return to.

Aethelwine's avatar

Not at all. I didn’t become a travel agent because I hate to travel. :)

It’s my dream to visit New Zealand and Bavaria. I’d also like to visit Canada and the 20 states of the U.S. that I have yet to see.

There’s no such thing as too much travel. Every time I travel I learn something new. If I could, I’d probably spend my life being a globetrotter.

Jack79's avatar

Travelled a lot, probably more than most people. But there’s still a couple of places I’d like to go to. It’s not as urgent as it used to be, especially since there’s nobody stopping me now, but I’m hoping to travel a little bit more in the future.

basp's avatar

I have travelled enough. I’m quite content to stay close to home these days.

jackfright's avatar

i’ve only been to 22 countries, and it’s definitely not enough.
i’d like to spend time in the middle east, mediterranean, northern asia, and south america.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Nope. Haven’t started with the totally non-English speaking countries yet.

I would love to travel more, but my husband is too ill to do so. It’s a pity because he always loved to travel. However, our last trip, to Chicago and then Minnesota by train, and then to New Mexico by car basically put him in the hospital. It was the last big trip we got to make.

I’ve only made it to 4 continents, 11 countries, and 48 of the 50 states of the US, so there is plenty more to see.

cookieman's avatar

No such thing.

We’ve been to London, Paris – spent a month in Italy; Quebec and Montreal; whole bunch of places in the US and spent three weeks in China – and I feel like we’re just scratching the surface.

We even took my daughter along to California, Las Vegas and Venice, Italy (all before she was five). She loves to travel.

I so envy Rick Steves.

cookieman's avatar

@Darwin: Im so sorry to hear that.

Velvetinenut's avatar

No. I’ve just returned from a trip to Grayson, Texas; Sarasota, Florida and San Francisco, California. I want to see more of the U.S of A.

Been to Bangkok, Sri Lanka, London, bit of Scotland, Shenzhen (China), Hong Kong, Brisbane and Victoria (Down Under). Will be going to Perth in September.

There’s still plenty more places to travel and visit on this earth.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Velvetinenut I’d love to visit Perth! Can you hide me in your luggage? :)

Velvetinenut's avatar

@jonsblond : Lol! I’ll have to get a larger luggage then! It’s going to be a one-week shopping / birthday bash trip with my gfs.

I’ve got plans to return to USA next year and visiting New Mexico. I love travelling!

Aethelwine's avatar

@Velvetinenut That sounds like a fun trip. Hope you have a wonderful time!

Darwin's avatar

@Velvetinenut – My daughter just got back from a week in the mountains in New Mexico. She had an absolute blast hiking all over. It is a beautiful state.

NewZen's avatar

Yes. I have.

noelasun's avatar

New Mexico is lovely!

Velvetinenut's avatar

I had a great time in Banbury, Perth. Went to Salvo and bought 26 pieces of clothing and one glass dish.

LOL! NM really does come highly recommeded, doesn’t it. : D

Well, I’m really tidying up my house and hoping to be able to put a guest room in by end of next year. If anyone is planning to visit Singapore in 2011, I might be able to put you up.
