"HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR DO YOU TRAVEL? Not nearly enough. Between full-time work, and a nearly-new mortgage, and the vagaries of bank-managers and stay-at-home boyfriends there are always compromises to be made. What is travel? How far do I have to go from my front door for it to count as travelling, does the purpose of the journey have a bearing, or the duration of the trip? Is a half-hour rail ride to the coast ‘travelling’ if I ..." Read review

"This is a subject very near and dear to my heart, and when I saw this challenge I couldn't resist. Thanks to Malu for inventing this one. By way of background for those who don't know me, I'm an Australian who's been living in London the last 3 years. We plan on staying another 2-3 years or so, before heading back home.

My knapsack on my back

AdvantagesA huge world to explore

DisadvantagesNot enough time off work, not enough money

From the moment I leave the house till the second I unlock the front door it's traveling. I love the whole experience even getting to the airport or station, checking in to my hotel and seeing if there are any complimentary bathroom goodies to swipe. Last year was ..." Read review

Trains, and Boats and Planes...

Advantages So Many Places,..

DisadvantagesSo Little Time

"HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR DO YOU TRAVEL? I would say on average 2-3 times a year, as a "holiday". I have always done a lot of short UK breaks and stuff and it would be impossible to count those. I find work is terribly inconvenient, it gets in the way of travel. For a long time though, I travelled overseas on business, which has its good and bad points. the good points being that it is possible to see some parts of the world at someone else's expense, ..."

The Not-So-Lonely Planet Guide

AdvantagesTravel broadens the mind......

Disadvantages........and the behind

"Q: How many times a year do you travel? A: There are no hard and fast amounts, but if 2003 was anything to go by, quite a lot really. We kicked off with New Year in New York, February half-term (Ruth’s a teacher) in Bilbao and San Sebastian, Easter in Morocco, June Half Term in North Norfolk, and our main summer holiday was in The Algarve, Autumn half term was spent in Dorset and Christmas in The Lake District. In between, I took advantage ..." Read review
