Travel - I Hate It

I understand that but everywhere looks better on TV in my experience, so many places disappoint.

I think the other side of it is, is that I just don't have the money for holidays anymore. I rarely have anything left at the end of the month to save up for them so I just don't bother making plans anymore.

My younger brother is such hermit. He is 28 years of age and hasn’t even left the province of Munster, nevermind the country.

Nope!! Barely left the county of Kerry.

I think he just has no interest in travelling, whereas myself and two sisters have travelled the globe respectively. He could have easily gone to Australia as he worked in construction, and has bar experience also. He is unemployed at the moment, but could easily get a job, if he got off his lazy ass and put his mind to it.

Reminds me of the case where there was an ancient skeleton found somewhere in England, and DNA testing proved that a man currently living in the same village as his parents, was in fact her direct line descendant!

So maybe your brother has that mentality of being such a home bird it is too much bother to travel to the next county.

A quick google search to verify my facts: nope, I got it slightly wrong.

DNA links cave man to British teacher

History teacher has roots in Stone Age

Los Angeles Times

London -- After he was killed by a blow to the face about 9,000 years ago, the 23-year-old hunter was laid to rest in a limestone cave in what is now southwest England.
Now, say scientists astonishingly bridging 90 centuries and 300 generations, they have found a direct descendant of the Stone Age man.
He lives half a mile from the burial site and teaches history. "I've been in the cave a few times, but I never realized it was home," 42-year-old Adrian Targett told the Los Angeles Times on Saturday, still good-naturedly coming to terms with astonishment -- and an unexpected instant of fame.
What started as part of a local television special about archaeology is ending as the second nudge at the frontiers of science by British researchers in as many weeks.
"I'm overwhelmed. I couldn't believe it," Targett said of learning that DNA tests had identified him as a direct descendant (on his mother's side) to Britain's oldest complete skeleton, found in the cave near Cheddar village. The atmosphere in the cave in the cheese-famous Somerset region of Britain helped preserve the skeleton, which was discovered by workers digging a drain in 1903.
"I'm a history teacher. But I teach modern history, so Cheddar Man's a bit out of my period. I have to admit that I knew next to nothing about him," said Targett, who is now learning in a hurry after finding himself on front pages in Britain newspapers Saturday.
His ancestor, now on display at the Natural History Museum in London, drew the attention of TV producers preparing a documentary on archaeology in Somerset.

what I get out of travel is the art and culture. I have traveled to many places and just love the whole vibe in Italy and the way of life over there.

I like holidays but couldn't care less where I spent them. I would rather spend it in bed.

I'm kind of the same Penny. I wouldn't feel comfortable on a long holiday at the moment, with bills waiting when I come back.
I do get plenty of one or 2 day breaks away in Ireland though !
