Yes, exactly! Everyone craves a change from their everyday way of life.

When I go back to a clockwork country after a few months in a fun country, I’m walking around wide-eyed like a tourist again. I remember one time, after I’d backpacked around the Middle East for a year, I landed in Florence, Italy just in time for Christmas. The streets were strung with golden lights, music was in the air, and people were hurrying home with wrapped presents — it felt like a scene from a movie. I wanted to grab someone and shout, “This is amazing! Do you not see how incredible this is? You live in a paradise!”

This is another reason I love traveling — it makes even the familiar places feel exciting and new again.
