Quoting Gelli

I think ANYTHING in excess is not a good thing. Let that be drinking, recreational drugs, studying, traveling, working etc etc.

Have to agree, whether we like to admit it or not, that probably true, even for travel

I love to fly, and never want to board a plane thinking "Oh, god, not another bloody flight." I agree, even an excess in travel, sad to say, isn't a good thing.

Gelli, for someone like you who travels so much for work - do you ever find yourself bored/fed up/disgusted with travelling?

There is no bad and good

Its all maybe

If something is good for someone it will be bad for another one

So spread an only positive vibe

The way I look at it, if it no longer brings you joy then perhaps you have over done it. The reason most people take things to excess is because the joy they get from something goes down so they think if they increase the thing that once gave them joy they can get to that same level of happiness again. The irony is the opposite happens and you become more desensitised. So if travel no longer makes you happy it is probably time to stop.

I'm a fan of moderation but I doubt I would apply that to travel. If I had the means to quit working and just travel constantly, I probably would. It's just too much fun to see new places and eat different foods.

Too much tasty food turns into not so tasty food and the stomach starts aching)) too much of my favorite snowboarding makes me tired like a fading horse... too much of music/books makes them annoying in my eyes and ears. All in all, too much good turns into bad... yes, I fully agree that too much of anything is a bad thing... "too much" means that the person has no resources to cope with the volume and it's not good not to be able to cope )

I think moderation is key for just about anything. Sure, more money is always nice, but if you're preoccupied with always having more, you're really not enjoying what you have. As far as travel is concerned, the right length of a trip for me is when I really look forward to getting back home. Kind of makes everything new again, even if it's just your regular old life. Then after settling in again for a bit, it's fantastic to go another adventure. My two cents anyway.

I was thinking while in the Michael jackson thread and I came to the thought that "is too much of anything a bad thing?". Obviously if you drink too much you pay the price. Those that dont have too much money always want more or to win the lottery. Can you travel too much, from this thread you would think not.

for me, I don't think there would be such thing as traveling too much, but I guess it depends on the person, everyone's different
