Absolutely am thrilled that you presented this very relevant topic and questions. I have actually studied this extensively.
Do you think the need to travel is inborn or just curiosity?
It is both. Like the chicken and the egg, which came first?
We are all born curious, look at any two year old. It is in our nature to want to see and explore. What happens is that some of us have tamed our curiosity for a whole lot of reasons I won’t get in to.
Do some nationalities travel more than others?
Some cultures, conditions and environments are more open to this curiosity, therefore more adventurous or as some may say willing to take more risks because they simply have to know (go). They want to know and have new experiences, see things first hand, make new discoveries, feel, touch, taste, smell…
What age were you when you applied for your first passport?
My environment was a very closed, tight fisted one. There were so many things that were deemed unacceptable and “was not allowed” or shouldn’t do.
I was that rebel. The black sheep, the fruitloop in the cheerios. I managed to escape incrementally over the years. It was challenging but so glad I did.
I got my first passport at 42 in 1997.
I am just getting started.
