Travel is such an activity/concept for me and has been throughout my life - most recently coming into focus a bit more as I increasingly (yes, due to the fact that I'm in Texas) meet people who haven't left their city.
Side story: When I lived in Arkansas, working at the Heifer World Headquarters, the secretary I became friends with desperately wanted to leave the state but:
- She didn't know anyone who was interested in traveling with her
- She didn't know anyone outside of the state thus had noone to visit
- She didn't think she had enough money saved up
- She wasn't quite confident enough to go on a trip by herself
