What's your reason for traveling?

I have just begun my mother's application for a US visa. She has been to many countries already but has never set foot in America, which I find quite odd because she has many friends and kin there. My mom's main reason for traveling is always for her own enjoyment, and not to see friends or relatives. This time she has decided that she'll be making that trip to the US because she wants to see her older sister and a few close friends. And I'm happy that I've finally made her realize that if we can afford to travel (not just for work or leisure), then we might as well make good use of that privilege by strengthening ties and relationships with those who are important to us. I do like to travel with my family because I want my kids to have good memories. I also want to travel and see friends and relatives whom I haven't seen in years. I think that would make my trip a lot meaningful as well. What's your usual reason for traveling? Image: djedj/mylot

The reason why I like traveling is because I want to spend quality time with my family. Though we are together every single day, it's different the you are traveling to different places. The memories you make will always be cherished.

@almostoveryou Considering I can't remember back more than about 6 weeks, I've already managed to travel pretty extensively. I've been to Canada, I've been to Alabama and I've even visited Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Traveling is something I don't mind spending on. I love to travel within my country and outside to other countries. I have travelled quite a lot ...we normally go for holidays at least twice a year . I feel that other than experiencing the culture and beauty of a place , it also broadens your outlook about people , their customs , traditions , food habits and so on
