I like traveling, but I do agree with him — It’s just vegas. Once you’ve seen it, you’ve seen it. I used to live in California and Vegas was a place I’d visit now and again, it’s really nothing special. Pretty lights — Ooh.

However, the shows are amazing. When he was deployed in Vegas last he saw Ka, and said it blew his mind.

I was jealous I was stuck here in Oklahoma.

Wow, I could not agree less with your SO.  It’s a big world out there and there is so much to experience.  I think that seeing differnet parts of the world (both cities and natural places, both inside and outside your own country) are important life experiences.  

It’s difficult to be open minded if you haven’t been outside your own backyard.

@cbgg:  totally agree. I can’t imagine not seeing different places, people, cultures, etc

I wonder if he will feel that way if you take a chopper to the Grand Canyon one day.

Do you go to museums or shows at home? Visit places with historical significance? Maybe he would be more excited about travel if he was learning something?

I can see everything I want to see thanks to the internet- vacation without leaving the comfort of my home! 🙂 travelling is expensive and a hassle, honestly I’d rather stay home

Some people don’t like to travel

Personally… I don’t get it


There is TONS in the world to see and do… it would be boring for me to sit still in one place too long

Mr TTR & I are retired… we travel a lot.

We typically have plans for an outing… weekend getaway… or upcoming vacation on our Calendars at all times

We literally LIVE to travel

LOVE how no two places are the same

(McDonalds seriously… good God, I never go Mickey Dees in my day-to-day life… let alone on the road)

So many wonderful great things to see… Geography – History – Culture – Architecture – Music, Dance, the Arts…

Never mind FOOD & Bevvy options that can be spectacular.

Your SO is missing out on soooo much

Vegas might be “just Vegas” to some people… I get that… especially if they’ve been there before.

(Altho not for me… Vegas IS VEGAS… cause it is like no other place on earth !!)

In my 50+ years I’ve crisscrossed most of Canada (9 of 10 Provinces) and the USA (30+ of 50 States)

PLUS been fortunate to see several Caribbean Islands as well.  And I can honestly say… NO TWO PLACES are the same… not even remotely.

Which is WHY I love to travel.  Discover new things… see intresting places.  Meet wonderful people.

My life would be a lot more bland if it didn’t include travel.

@Leatherandlace:  Look around you and take advantage of something near you. Even if you don’t live in an area with museums or music venues or theaters, find something that gets you out of the house (apple picking, walk around a park, walk dogs at the shelter, anything). 

I pull crazy hours at certain times of year and on those days when I am not working, I get the heck out of the house. I would try to get out of your rut.

I like seeing things, but I hate traveling. I hate how unconvinent it is, I hate not being able to do anything but sit in a plane, car or train, and if I could just stay at home and see all the things then I would. I wish you could like bring the Grand Canyon or the Great Pyramids or whatever to you instead of going to them.

I’ve never been one for wonderlust at all.

Love to travel and it was important to me that my future husband love travelling to. And he does! We like all sorts – we’ve cycled across Vietnam, bus and trained through Europe and the States, relaxed in SE Asia. Next up is a Malaysian honeymoon then trekking in Peru and Patagonia. Not everyone likes travel though and while I can’t personally understand that whatever floats your boat! if your happy to holiday with friends and other family (and it won’t breed resentment) then that’s great. Maybe he’ll change his mind once he has left Canada and end up with the travel bug!

Yep my FH doesnt like going on holidays that much either we went to Europe last year only because it was something i really wanted to do we had a great time but no way he would have suggested it. He is happy to stay local and go fishing. I have gone away with my parents, and sister because he isnt interested in going.Haven’t discussed where we will go for a honeymoon yet, there was mention of Lord Howe Island (a very popular island for Fishing) so I think I will suggest that for a bucks week not the honeymoon.

Yes, this is me exactly. I’m sure all those things are great but I totally hate travelling. I enjoy the comfort of my own home. I also think there are better things I could spend my money on.
