Lost my love for travel

Itís slowly come to dawn on me over the past weeks/months that I have absolutely no interest in traveling anymore.
I have a big birthday coming up in the next few weeks and our plan was to go to California next year as a birthday trip.
As time has gone on I have begun to dread the thought of going abroad more and more.
Itís so weird as pre Covid I always had a holiday booked or planned. I just donít know what has flicked that switch in me.
Am I even allowed to post on here anymore?🙈😂

I was kind of feeling that way too,I've lost count on how many holidays we've had cancelled and the more it happened the less bothered I was.We are off to Orlando in less that 4 weeks and if this one wasn't happening,I reckon we would just give up and holiday in The Highlands all the time.It's a strange feeling as we lived for our holidays.

It might (hopefully?) just be that you are out of practice? I was in Paris last week, beforehand I kept saying to DH that I didnít want to go. I always have some pre travel anxiety, but usually just some nerves the day before / on the day of travel whereas last week, I was saying that I didnít know why I booked it and would be happy not going away again ever.

I am glad I did the short trip before we have a longer trip and longer flight coming up in January. I will probably have my usual pre flight nerves but I think I feel otherwise I will be ok about January now. So maybe plan a mini trip somewhere and see how you feel?

I feel the same. Iím not that bothered about going away anymore and I too lived for my holidays. I feel a bit of a fraud coming on here really because I cannot ever see me going to Florida again !
Maybe when the trip reports start coming in weíll get our mojo back !

The pre flight testing is killing the love of travel for me - the uncertainty of not knowing until 2 days before I board a flight that I can actually go does kill the excitement and general build up.

Although we are going in a few weeks this is to basically use up the flights and accommodation cancelled due to COVID.

Not really sure I am in any rush to book anywhere ready for next year just yet.

Itís all the extra worry, not about catching covid but the ďwill we get to go rollercoasterĒ, having to test for a holiday really takes out any excitement as literally until you take the Tests you have no idea if you will go or not.

Same for us, we had to test for a cruise last year I kept saying donít get excited until we step foot into that ship !

That's exactly how we feel.

We've had three cancelled but I suppose we just shrugged our shoulders and thought the same as millions of others.

We're being tested tomorrow for Tuesday's flights but the suitcases aren't even out of the loft yet. In a normal year they'd have been lying open on the spare bed for a week now.

Mary Poppins - you're still fine posting here. We haven't been to a WDW park since 2010 but still regularly post on the Disney Information Bulletin Board.

I have always felt exactly the same Claudette. Hope you enjoyed Paris.
I have been excited about holidays then the couple of days before the anxiety has kicked in and Iíve not wanted to go but once there I have loved it.
It just feels odd now, like it tells me with dread. My passport runs out next year but I donít think I will bother renewing it.
Iíve planted the seed with DH that he should have a trip away with DS once he finishes his exams in the summer.
Thanks for all the replies, itís helpful to know I am not the only one having a wobble.

The testing is the worst especially when youíve got kids but honestly once thatís out of the way youíll have the best time! My anxiety was through the roof in July as we did the Disney cruise & we all had to test but it was fine!
So glad weíve only day 2 tests to do once we get home now, if it had of been testing before coming back to uk Iíd probably not travel either!

Iím feeling like that also. We went to Japan in 2019 and couldnít wait to go back. Two cancelled trips later I seem to have given up. I just have no enthusiasm. We have nothing planned for next year and donít even talk about it anymore.

I did vaguely think of a couple of city breaks in europe but I just canít be bothered with all the faff.
