Downside of Travel

Besides the all-known fact that travel plunders your bank account, it actually has one downside.
I know. I was shocked too, when I realized it.

Note: I'm not talking about the regular 5 days - 3 weeks holiday, really.
Travelling, however, is all inclusive. It doesn't matter whether you travel across the globe, or just across the country.

People.
You meet people. You make friends.
You leave to travel. You create a distance.
You arrive somewhere. You meet new people.
You make friends. You leave to travel.
You create a distance.

It's a vicious cycle. Of course, it's lovely to make new friends.
The more, the merrier.
But I've been feeling a little too much like joining all those I've befriended onto this empty island and just maybe settle there.
How egoistical is that?

I don't actually need to be around most of my friends 24/7.
First of all, it wouldn't be healthy.
Second of all, they'd drive me nuts, I'd drive them crazy.
Third of all, they need/have their own lives. I sometimes tend to forget that tiny detail.
I just wish I could keep in touch more.
More frequently, more often, more talking. If that makes sense.

Apart from that, travelling rulez. With a Z.
