Should you travel all the time?

Everyone wants to travel and see what the world has to offer, but is it such a good idea to be travelling all the time and uprooting your life frequently? Having been a world traveller and as someone who travels frequently, there is actually a sense of wanting to belong somewhere at some point in your life.

When you are moving one place to another over and over again, it is a bit difficult and emotionally draining to be honest. You always have to learn new things and get used to new customs that are different from yours.

Sooner or later you start wondering what your life is meant to be, and whether you will find a place to belong somewhere. We make travel out to be something so glorious and amazing. Though it allows you to see many amazing aspects of life that you would not be able to experience if you stayed home, it does take a bit of an emotional toll moving one place to another.

Friends are temporary and you realize that most of your friends are scattered all over the world. Makes you wonder whether they are actually friends or just people you happen to cross paths out of necessity.

True friendship should be about meeting people and making the willing choice to stay friends. The same can be said about romantic relationships. When you are a traveller, most of your love life is centered around passion and the thrill of getting to know someone knew, but it takes time for a true deep emotional bond and trust to develop.

Is it a good idea to jump from one relationship to another just based on infatuation and pure physical attraction? I am not sure if that is the way to go about things.

Sooner or later, I am coming to the conclusion that you do need a place where you can feel at home and stay for most of your life. Having to change your home and having move often is tiring and can be quite heartbreaking.

When you say goodbye to people too often, you in some way become numb to the feeling and less emotionally attached to people, because you have trained yourself to think that they come and go.

There are the goods, but there are also the bads, so I suppose we can’t idolize one thing over the other.
