I’ve long wondered whether you don’t really like to travel as much as you say you do.
Travel is one of those aspirations that everyone seems to say that they wish they could do more.

I wonder because the people I talk to don’t seem to have a strong sense of what they would do if they were traveling. If travel is what you’d like to do more than anything else, then don’t stare blankly at me when I ask you where you wish you could go.
(And don’t just say Hawaii. Which island? What would you do there? What time of year? Why?)
No, I think people don’t travel more because, well, they don’t want to. But it’s an easy thing to say that you wish you could do.
