    Both! I like to take a nice exotic vacation from time to time. But the rest of the time, I like to keep it simple, and for me, that means stay close to home. I would love to just sit and read in between fixing up my house. I’d like to do that one day a week but right now, I’m lucky if I get a couple days a year like that.

    I always liked the idea of taking like a year off work and driving all around the USA, checking out all the cool stuff most Americans never get to see. It would be awesome to do that with my kids when they are older. What are the chances? Maybe a few weeks each summer with a tent in the trunk? Probably just dreaming. Unless we sell the business or something . . . .

    I am 55 years old and I have been/done both.

    For me there is absolutely no better feeling than coming home after an extended time away.

    I love going on vacations, and would love to take a page out of SKL’s book and go “exotic” someday. My go-to ‘mental escape’ has always been Bora Bora, though I’ve never been anywhere tropical, except Florida.

    I have, however, done exactly what you want to do with your kids, SKL, in miniature. My dad was a teacher, so he had every summer off, and my mom was a SAHM. We used to pack up the car for several weeks every summer – tent, sleeping bags, coolers of food (it taught me early how to pack LIGHT) – and head for a section of the country. By the time I was 16, I’d been through the contiguous U.S., and seen many of those weird and wonderful things that people don’t even know about anymore… like Wall Drug, and Route 66. It really sparked an interest in the history of this country that wasn’t covered in my classes at school. I wouldn’t trade those times for anything.

    But I’ve gotta say… as much as I love vacations, I love just hanging out at home, and taking little park-jaunts.

    I like going on vacation, but I like being at home too.

    I really like traveling but of late I have been mainly a homebody except for short local trips. I miss traveling. The animals with 2 sick needing lots of care and medicine, it just seem easier if I stay home. That’s OK little trips for now is OK.

    both. I get the urge to travel a couple of times a year. I discovered for me there is a rhythm when I travel….if it’s a several day trip, then 5 hrs on the road is about perfect…then stop somewhere and savor. That’s why in the back of my mind, I would love to take an extended trip (thinking 2 to 3 weeks) and meet some of the people I’ve met in the blog-o-sphere. @ the same time, I LOVE being home, in my own bed, etc. the older I get, the more I appreciate the simple pleasures of life, and don’t need constant “adventure” . fun question.

    I love to travel, and one thing I’ve noticed is that after returning home after traveling, I appreciate home more. So I guess you could say that I love both.

    I do like traveling. I like going news places and seeing new things. There’s no place like home though!!!! I am a homebody, more than a traveler though.

    I’m really a homebody too. The older I get, the more the thought of traveling makes me want to just stay home.

    I’m both… I love traveling and I love spending time at home.

    I traveled outside of the U.S. quite extensively BK (before kids), and admit to the occasional feeling of wanderlust to this day. But whenever I was far away from home, I always felt a bit of longing for “my real life”. These days, I consider myself lucky to camp in remote locations of my beautiful state. Still, someplace warm sounds really nice 🙂
