OK let's see. I could say that it's the thought of cheap red wine, 15 hours of sun a day, more comfortable beach chairs, waitresses, knowledgable tour guides,
the rate of the euro against the dollar, the package deal, cheap flights and hotels, guaranteed tan, etc etc
but for me it's the wildlife and the mountains and the primitive culture.
The feel and the experiences. As soon as I land, there is this exciting feeling. It is much more then in your own country. The culture, ambiance, people, environment, food etc etc everything is different. Being from India as its a vast country the difference one feels withing the country as well. But in case of an abroad trip it is many folded.shopping and eating for those who want to experiment and indulge can be the main attractions
And the duty free shopping is a bonus for sure:-)
Reviewing my past experiences, mostly I was influenced by the necessity brought about by the requirements at work, e.g. training and seminars.
If it would be all up to me, the consideration would be getting to a place that fosters a contemplative way of living, e.g. a country where there’s plenty of quiet in the beach or the mountains, plenty of time to write!
For me it would be just the adventure. The not knowing for sure what awaits. The learning of the cultures, the people, the beautiful cities, countrysides and all the wonderful friends I would make.
Nothing, I haven't seen all of England yet, then there is Wales, Scotland, and the whole of Ireland to see, before I'm interested in seeing other countries.
I love traveling and going to Europe is probably my favorite. They have a rich history, plenty of gorgeous architecture, astounding castles, lovely gardens, wonderful food, etc. That's usually what I look for in a place. You can find entertainment anywhere. It just depends on what kind of entertainment you are looking for.
Just the desire to see as much of the world as possible. We are only here for a short period of time and I want to see as much of this wonderful planet as possible. Add in the fact that I love discovering new places, meeting new people, and seeing how peope live in other parts of the world and it adds up to a long list of places I want to visit.
De-stress is my reason for traveling.
We work hard and we need to relax while enjoying the time off the workload.
Like the saying goes: all work and no play makes Jack a sad person.
Fun and pleasure. A great way to spend time with family and escape the stress of everyday workweek!
Hi Suzie HQ,
for me it's simple, classic cars and bikes. You dull so and so I hear them say. Perhaps so, but chasing these vehicles takes me to amazing places, most of which are not in the tourist guides.
These places are the homes of real people of that particular country and offer genuine real life hospitality.
This is my adventure and I wouldn't change it for the world,
We get so caught up with being American sometimes that we forget that for most of us we are only 1st, 2nd, 3rd,......generation Amercicans. Being two different races and haveing a culturally diverse upbringing has made me want to travel abroad to see where these roots came from.
Actually I have not a single reason that influences me to travel abroad. There are many reasons that influence me to travel abroad. Different countries have different culture. I love my culture but I have a curiosity about others’. Many countries have great history behind their success. They have Different food habits. They have luxurious and eye catching sites and places to visit. Study purpose and relaxation may another reason for me to travel abroad.
It depends for a relaxing break its got to the 3 S's - Sun, Sand and Sea, but for a fun partying break its got be the 1 GCP - Girls, Cheap Alcohol and Partying.

What do you research when planning to travel abroad?

What age is old enough to travel abroad alone?Having traveled alone myself at times, when would you allow your son or daughter travel to a foreign country alone? Is it something you have done?

If so, where? And why? Permanently or just for a while?I would seriously consider living in New Zealand, if they let me in, potentially permanently.I would like to live in the US, Canada and Australia for a year a piece. In other words I would have no interest in a permanent visa, but I would like...

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are equally good quality articles. What am I doing wrong?!?!

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

This one's from an HP writer, Dusty or 50 Caliber, who's no longer with us. Thankfully, I saved his words to remember his kindness. This was on a hub I wrote in 2012.
