Why do people travel?

it is always a useless, pointless idea to travel in my opinion and also do not understand why people like it so much. Why do people enjoy seeing some old shapeless rocks. What is the point in going to a museum and looking at old paintings? Should it rekindle some long dead emotions or fire me up?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I live on the East Coast in New Jersey and have only traveled up-and-down the East Coast, but recently got to go to Iceland and you're a fuckin fool if you think there's no point in traveling. You need to get out from under your rock.

        Something like that haha. It was AMAZEBALLZ!!! A dream of mine since the early 90s. I SAW THE NORTHERN FRIKKIN LIGHTS!!!! AHHHH!!! I went with my daughter and that was super special. Our first trip together. She'll be 19 in 2 days and this was a gift for her graduation and exemplary performance throughout high school. We went on a Game of Thrones tour and saw so much cool stuff. We explored Reykjavik and it was spectacular. Oh and edit...the first morning I woke up to a double rainbow over the Atlantic, the next morning the sky was so clear I could see frikkin GREENLAND!!! OMG!!!
        The hot dogs are SO GOOD. I got some sweet volcanic rocks from some of the places we went. Oh, so much greatness!!! Ooh, the blue lagoon was epic too. Beautiful. It was snowing at sunrise when when we went out there. Just epic.
        I've always wanted to see NZ too! Maybe next on the trip list!
        How the heck you been, lady!!

        • Holy shit! That sounds life changing & so amazing!!! I can't believe you got the chance to see the northern fucking lights. & you must've felt so at peace & amazing your first morning, seeing such a beautiful start to the day...must've felt like the best dream ever!

          & so many congrats on your little hatchling taking flight. I'm so happy for you guys. You deserve it & hopefully your travel high lasts for ages.

          Traveling across the planet is retardedly expensive...never would have gotten the chance to go if I didn't move nearby, but if you ever get the chance you HAVE to go. It exceeded my expectations ×1000 in almost every way. Once you leave the city, everywhere you go is like walking into a postcard & getting fucked in the eyesockets by the baby jebus himself. It doesn't feel real seeing something so beautiful. All of the really popular nature spots were way overcrowded, but if you drive 1 k down the road, you can find a lesser know, completely empty nature trail with no one there & holy fuck is it pristine & awe inducing. The only thing we missed out on was hanging out in Christchurch proper- the afternoon we planned on bumming around the city was when the Christchurch mass shooting happened. Anyways, I went back a few months later, but I was by myself, so I did get to see the city & I held a lemur(!!!), but i was there to submit my marriage Visa, so it wasn't super fun.

          I've been really, really good. Straya is...holy fuck level amazing & we finally, finally submitted the big marriage Visa, so we're just waiting on that to get approved.

          How've you been, chirpyderp? Sounds like you're doing pretty good, which makes me smile.

      • Definitely a high interest destination. I'm thinking about popping over there myself for a quick one week trip.

          • Oh, and I went for 5 days, 4 nights and only had about $750 USD which translates to about 70,000 krona. I made it work though. A T-shirt is like 7000 krona...but it's a beautiful country
            I stayed at Fasshotel Reykjavik on the 14th floor with an ocean view. Gorgeous .
            BUS STOP #12, HOLLA!!!!!

  • I don't usually travel for tourism reasons. My family is scattered all over the world and my mum has lots of friends overseas, so I travel for birthdays or holidays with friends and family.

    I think tourism is popular because it breaks the monotony of day to day life and introduces new stimulus.

  • Some of us just like seeing new things and exploring other places. I've only been to roatan, mexico and canada, but I'm trying to get to ireland for 2 weeks next year. I want to see the castles and fields and pubs.

  • Broadens horizons, and you may learn new things after meeting new people.

  • I don't get it either. It appeals to some people for some reason but not me.

  • Well, why do people do anything? Because it interests them. It's not just about rocks and paintings, it's about seeing distant lands & landmarks, and experiencing different cultures. I don't travel much myself, but I can surely understand and appreciate people who do.

  • I hate traveling, I've only left my birth place (USA TN) 3 times (Ohio, Kentucky & South Carolina) only once by choice & I was not impressed.
