The change of scenery and how people are different from place to place - Joburg seems wonderfully friendly compared to Bloemfontein, for instance.

New sites, new cultures, new people, new things to appreciate, and new things to learn about. I love learning, so it's like reading a new book.
Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be...

Being with family, being in an environment different from where I live, visiting cultural sights. I love traveling by car rather than by plane, if it is a possibility.

The company, mostly my husband and the kids. He makes it a point every holiday to awaken our old rust bucket for a trip around our country. I pack sandwiches, sausages and my camera. How I love those trips.

I think seeing different cultures is a good reason to travel!

Everything! I love being able to see different beautiful sights that I haven't seen before. I love being able to try different foods that I've never sampled and meet different peoples. I love being able to look at different cultures and ways of life. I love just getting away from MY life for a while!

I agree that the best part about traveling is escaping your own life for some time.
