It's even trickled down into actual work. New grads from college somehow think management consulting's traveling every week is a fancy perk. What?
Having only a suitcase of possessions is very freeing, and I’m saving tremendous amounts of money.
For me, it is a fancy perk.
And even within that, some people can enjoy travel up to a certain point. Might be fun to travel for work once a month, but not for 3 out of 4 weeks. I traveling for my first job where I was gone 60-80% of the time and it was fun, but after a year it got old.
This is possibly a thing that is not very possible, and very cumbersome with long term travel. Especially if you would like to practice multiple instruments.
Not everyone can afford traveling (I agree that's not as much true in the U.S.). And staying in fancy hotels is cool.
Once you have a family that changes quickly (I don't have children), but for 20 somethings it must be a real perk.
Edit: sibling comments says it wears out after 4-6 months.
Personally, flying and airports are just miserable. Traveling is nice but too much of a hassle to do more than once a year.
Middle of fucking nowhere? Oh joy.
Hot? Cold? Dangerous? Yeah, nah. Not so much.
I haven’t been anywhere exceptionally dangerous since I was younger.
