I have never been to Europe and as far as I am concerned, no big deal.
I live in a fantastic neighborhood just one subway stop from Manhattan.
We have gotten to see lots of Broadway plays because there is a TKTS booth in Brooklyn now and we can see the best plays at 50% off.
I don't feel that I am missing out by not traveling. There is so much
diversity in this city that we don't need to travel to see people from other countries as they are our neighbors. A ten minute walk from my block brings me to a neighborhood with lots of Lebanese stores and restaurants. I think maybe there are more Lebanese in our section of Brooklyn than in Lebanon. (maybe). My husband works for an international company and has traveled to Mumbai, London, Switzerland. He was always eager to come back home.
So, not all of us feel cheated if we don't travel. It's very expensive and I'd rather travel around my own neighborhood which means walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, looking out my window to see what progress is being made on the new Freedom Tower, etc. etc.
