Have you ever cried while travelling? I've been crying nonstop for the last week.

Have you ever cried while travelling? I've been crying nonstop for the last week. I eat about 500 calories a day and only go outside for Ubereats. Sometimes I have an intense tension headache and other times it's clear.

    No but when I was young and innocent I was one of those "luv 2 travel" smoothbrains

    When I got older and jaded I realized it was just empty escapism coupled with inane virtue signaling, a shoddy attempt at capturing the cachet of "le grand tour" by the yuropean upper class, generations ago

    When this first hit me, I was in southeast asia and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I couldn't go outside for a couple of days, I just sat in my room in darkness drinking shitty beer

    I have traveled MUCH less since then, and all of my travel has a specific activity in mind that cannot be done anywhere else, so needless to say there's not much of that. I spend the extra money on my other hobbies

      Travel is much more impactful before age 25. I don't think it's empty escapism before then. It helps you experience different kinds of beauty and see things from different perspectives. I don't think reading would've given me the same experience.

        Yeah I think I was 27 or 28 when that happened

        something similar happened with anime, I used to get totally immersed and now it does nothing for me

        but there's always other stuff to occupy your lizard brain before you turn to rotten meat and entropy takes its prize

        Also, we millennials didn't come of age continually being bombarded by intense digital imagery. So heading out there and finding your way in a new place was very stimulating. Now, it usually feels like a disappointment when you compare all that beautiful drone footage of coastlines and sunsets to the mundane reality of traffic and commerce at street level under the midday glare.
        Do selfie-takers at beautiful spots really feel any impact beyond "nice, that pic should make my friends jealous". A feeling of superiority for being privileged enough to expend all that money and time on scenic selfies.
        Those who are keen social observers, however, will find their beliefs strongly impacted by travel. You judge your surroundings, yes, but you also try to understand why things are the way they are. Certain landscapes can make it clear that human impact improves nature instead of degrading it.

        It's not age so much as your ability to be wowed. Does simple beauty evoke neural activity, or does it elicit no response at all? Some people at 65 can be captivated for an hour by simple things like the light of sunset on a placid river, the variations of fall foliage along a trail, or a lovingly prepared meal at a local restaurant. Others at 16 are too phone-addicted and overstimulated to give their surroundings more than the occasional bored glance, and "I'm hungry, where's my burger?"

          I think you get what you put in to travel. If you're travelling for empty escapism you're gonna eventually feel it. If you're travelling for an actual reason it's going to feel much richer.

          what's "an actual reason" other than self-justifying circular logic?

          I was roped into SEA shitholes and wasted a whole summer at one. After that I said for now on I'm only doing history travel in civilized nations but mostly I stick to my own comfy culture

          history travel is where you go looking for it, there's plenty to find even in SEA shitholes, but most of it is ruins or historic sites. manila used to be instagram-tier colonial architecture everywhere until it was obliterated in ww2

          It’s hard to say where I am. I’m definitely not wowed by my state much, except for the sunsets maybe, but I’ve also lived here (Florida) my whole life. I’m tired of how flat, hot, and humid everything is. I think I could really do with some traveling but I always feel either too broke or too busy to get something together. One day the grind will be worth it but frick I already feel old enough as it is because of the way I’m chasing my dream.

    I think traveling needs a purpose, you should have a specific reason for going some place, a hobby, interest, job related, etc. This is why people feel hollow after they go somewhere just to check off a place on a list they have. I realized this, now I will only travel if I have a specific reason to go somewhere.
