This is really meant as a question. I want to write a post about my own experiences but I would love to hear your stories first. So how do your family and friends feel about your traveling? What about partners and significant others? Are they supportive, neutral or openly hostile to the idea? Does this affect your ability or willingness to go? Have you ever not gone on a trip because of this? I REALLY want to hear from you. I want to mention my observations but am not able to give my answer the time and attention it deserves at the moment. I will update in a few hours. The TLDR version is it is one huge gray area for me. But the subject has been on my mind a lot lately and I would be so grateful to find out everyone else’s take on the matter. So please comment.
