Should we travel to find our happiness?

Should we travel to find our happiness? We are often forced to leave loved ones to go to find our happiness, we believe that it still exists in the 'Out There'. From my personal experience, I do not think this is always the case. What do you think?

    Dec 11 2012: Hello Nouamane,
    I agree with you that happiness is not "out there". The first place we need to "travel" to experience happiness, is in our "self". External situations and people can certainly contribute to our happiness, and ultimately, we recognize it in ourselves....or not....it's a choice.

    There is a nice little, easy read book:
    "HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE" - Barry Neil Kaufman

    It's a good "starter" for those who believe happiness is NOT a choice:>)
