I'm a confirmed introverted homebody, but I also really enjoy traveling. I'm fairly comfort seeking by nature so I consider it a valuable form of "strategic discomfort" that forcibly expands my boundaries in beneficial ways. I find I need to make myself plan a trip or two a year to keep myself from sinking too far into routine ruts.

I could see myself getting my fill of travel at some point, though. I got a late start (didn't leave western North America or travel for business until my 30's) so while I've traveled a decent amount over the last 8 years it likely won't go on at this rate indefinitely.

I think I may be more tolerant of the annoyances of travel than most, though. Flying doesn't bother me much (although flights over 8 hours can do it). I have a passive mode I slip into when things are arranged and all I need to do is be a leaf being swept downstream, and that's why you keep your kindle stocked up.
