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 13 2012: haha no I agree with your sentence and Marcel Proust quote is also one of my favourite, I disagreed with the clear-cut point of view of Greg. Talking about traveling, I would make a difference between less and more than a year. One would be considered as visiting, with a low probability of making new long term friends, as the other one gives you a chance of really receative a "home" environment. Which form of travel are you talking about?

      I speak about travel, as spending a considerable time in a place, backpacking, and interacting with people....no hotels, resturants or tourist "stuff":>)
