Return trip: why we go back for seconds | Lonely Planet

I’ve always been a one-time-travel kind of girl.  As much as I can help it, I don’t visit a city twice within my lifetime – or within 10 years, if I must.  Repeat trips are limited to business travel.  But there are times when things actually seem lovelier the second time around.  Sydney, Boston, Hong Kong, New York – I was pleasantly surprised in each of these cities when I had to take a second look.  So perhaps there IS some value in visiting more than once.

See what Leif Pettersen of Lonely Planet has to say.

Why do people go to the same restaurant more than once, sometimes ordering the exact same meal? Why have I seen Pulp Fiction 47 times? And why do we go to the same destinations more than once, even annually in some cases, when there are nearly a lifetime’s worth of new places to visit?

    We also tend to be one time travelers – there are just so many new places we’re always dying to see!
