My husband is very fond of travelling. He plans for a trip atleast once in two months. He has done lots of travels. On the other side, I am not very fond of travlling. If I go to a tourist spot, I will be intersted in shopping than sight seeing. Are you a travel freak? Please share your experience.

I have seen that mostly women are fond of shopping compared to men. Men will always focus on sight seeing and taking picutres. There are also women who are very fond of taking pictures. I like to pose for pictures, but not to take pictures. Thanks for the response.

Well, yes I'm a "travel freak". I love travelling and would take pictures of everything i find interesting and new in the place. It is fun to explore different cultures and tradition, not to forget the differnt picturesque every city or country has. Although, I have never travelled outside India, i feel India in itself has a great deal of places that should be explored. And i love shopping too. You get to collect a variety of souvenirs that will always remind you of the places you have been :)

Thanks for the response. Yes, India is a mixture of various cultures and there exists a lot to see. If you go to any state of India, there will be something different and intersting to see which never exists in other states of India. There are differences of cultures, beliefs, and rituals in the same state too. I am also interested in taking pictures. Thanks for the response.

I love travelling and seeing places. I like visitng my friends and relatives also at least once in year. I cannot call this a freak. I love both shopping and sight seeing when you visit a tourist spot. I like to carry a memento from the place i have visited. My husband does not like to travel much. He prefers staying in the same place rather then seeing new places. But see the satire of it he is a bank employee and is posted on new transfers every three years so has to go out of the same place. This is also another reason how i got to see many places which i really enjoy. Happy mylotting.

My top interest is traveling so I would therefore say that I am a travel freak. When I was younger I did travel around different countries a lot. I do less traveling these days but traveling is something I often think out. I have been to 52 different countries in my life so far. I am fascinating my sightseeing like seeing attractive looking architecture and meeting the local culture. I think seeing the native wildlife is really special. My last trip was to South Africa in January of this year. There I saw penguins and went on a safari with my toddler son for a few hours. I went shopping for a costume doll for my collection of dolls from around the world. Your husband travel interest sounds similar to mine.
