Ever wondered if you’re a travel addict? Find out here – how many of the 26 signs of being addicted to travel do you tick?

1. Nothing gets you more excited, let’s your heart beat faster, than traveling.

Who cares about Christmas or birthdays? Your next trip excites you so much more.


2. Haven’t traveled for a month? There’s this aching feeling in your heart.

Need. To. Book. Flight.

Cuba? Iceland? You just can’t decide.

Just quit your job and never come back.

It’s amazing how many friends you make while traveling.

6. You just don’t enjoy foreign cuisine at home anymore. It’s simply not the real deal.

You know how it’s supposed to taste and where it’s supposed to be eaten.

7. There’s this little treasure chest of things you collected on your trips and your favorite photographs.

A train ticket. A bracelet from your fling. Your travel journals.

Ever found it hard to answer the question “Where is home for you then?”?


10. You’re courageous.

11. Travel blogs and websites: You can read on and on and on.

And on…

I want to be a digital nomad!

They’re so pretty and colorful.

I want to stay forever!

You can only grow. You’ll always be moving forward.
