Recently I had a conversation with my daughter-in-law, who was somewhat perplexed that while I have now flown over 1200 flights in my career, I do not enjoy the hassle of plane travel. I love to be either at point A or point B, but the inbetween is often time lost. Flying is romantic only for those that do have not flown frequently. Travel to the airport two hours early, clear security, waiting for the flight to depart, a long international flight covering multiple time zones, often a stop or two to change planes / carriers / claim your luggage, clear customs, recheck baggage, get through security (again), etc. There is no small stress placed on you physically, plus the added strain of being away from family.
So ... why? I do travel, but what is the motivation? To connect.
