1. I miss getting up early in the morning and driving 2 miles an hour (on a highway designated for 65 miles an hour) to get to work.

2. Getting home from work, checking the mail and seeing a stack of Bills that equal just over what my paycheck is worth. You just don't get that feeling on vacation.

3. Running into ex-girlfriends while out with your current girlfriend.

4. Microwave dinners, I always get stuck eating "Real Food" on vacation.

5. Getting to make my own bed every morning

6. Telemarketers. I think they should have Telemarketers that ring Hotel rooms to help me feel at home while I am away.

I know there are more, but these are things that always make me sad to leave when I travel away from home.

I definitely miss my family and friends but food-wise? I miss Tim Horton's! They (and not Starbucks!) have the best in coffee: French vanilla cappuccinos, Iced Cappuccinos, yummy and cheap lunches, good croissants (although not the real french, buttery kind, they are still amazing), and many goodies. Other than that, I can say I don't miss much!

Hmmmm coffee from Timmy Ho's, now that's the stuff! Mmmmmmm That is actually one of the main things I miss when I'm away (other than the obligatory friends and family part of the answer). I miss my bed too. It's comfy and you never know what you're gonna get at a hostel I also miss music. It never fails, no matter what CDs I bring with me, I always want to listen to something that's in my CD player at home. I should probably update my technology and get an iPod or something, but until that happens, I shall continue with my travelling tradition ;) So I guess looking back, I don't miss much!

Good question and not so easy to answer! Well I can tell you it isn't the weather. Definitely my cats (all 3 and I know - how sad is that!) and yes, my bed which has to be absolutely and without doubt the best on the planet. And I guess after all's said and done. I'm always glad to be back because altho I love being away, I just miss my home!

I usually really enjoy myself so much that I don't really miss anything, including food (or maybe I haven't travelled long enough so far?) I'm curious to try local food where I am travelling altho' I'm not a big eater. Maybe I only miss cheap prices while travelling in places where prices are higher and so considered expensive to me. It is kinda silly when I converted prices into my currency and feel that my exhausting working weeks, months, years are so nothing there... :(

It's interesting that some of you miss privacy while travelling, because for me it is the opposite - I have and really enjoy my privacy while travelling.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this already, but I have had some of my australian friends force me to try vegimite (not sure about the spelling). I think it might be the same thing, I looked on the website (sad but true), and it looked about the same. They eat it on crackers with butter. Maybe that will help. To me, as an American, it tasted like a creamy version of a bullion cube. I know this is old, please forgive.

I usually get food cravings--like craving McD's when I don't eat there even when I'm home! But, other than that--I don't usually miss much. Travelling is about the excitement of a new place and getting to try new things!

NOTE: usually by the time it's time to come home, I'm ready--the only exception was in Israel, where I wanted to say forever. And very VERY glad to get back to all the materialistic crap
