5 Signs That You Travel Too Much

You know you travel too much when:

1. You get excited over power outlets, ogling them as a precious commodity in bars, restaurants or public transport. You chose your seating plan based on their proximity before plugging in all your accessories.

2. You ask for the WIFI password before looking at a menu.

3. You develop selective hearing and no longer hear or respond to the following phrases:

– “Tuk Tuk Sir?”
– “Taxi?”
– “Suit Sir?”
– “Where you go?”
– “Hello… Hello” – shouted randomly for the only purpose of getting – your attention.
– “Where you from?” – when used randomly as a way to trap you in to a conversation which leads to selling something.
– “(insert attraction name here) is closed today” – usually because of a fictional holiday such as ‘Buddha Day’ where they will instead offer to take you to a shop where they get commission.

4. You have far too many wrist bands to the point you can no longer see your wrists through the many colour threads.


5. You develop very creative ways to avoid laundry. These may including; swimming in shorts, underwear etc (it’s like a washing machine… It involves water right?), you buy a cheap t-shirt at a market instead of washing one, you develop the “I only wore it for half a day really” mentality, and if this gets extreme you just don’t wear a shirt (mainly for guys).

  1. You know you have been travelling for awhile when you shower with your clothes on to do your laundry… saves time and mess! 🙂 And I have had very selective hearing since I began to travel. That is so so so true! And my daughter has enough wrist bands to start up a store of her own. Loved this post 🙂

  2. Those sounds like good problems to have. I would love to travel more! In years past, most of my travel was done via roadtripping, which allowed for a lot of on the go sightseeing. Good times because we got to see several American landmarks. Great post!

    1. So true! I always do that… Even for a while after I get home! It’s worse in the middle of the night when it’s dark and you think “where the hell am I again?”
