    Traveller and nomad who slowly would like a bit more stability. But the thought of moving excites me, I get bored when I stay too many years in one place.

I have businesses based in NY, so I always end up coming back here regularly, but before that I never once thought about 'roots'.
    Yes about the suitcase thing! I am not very materialistic and hate having too many things since I feel they keep me bound to one place, so every time I move I give away a lot of books etc. I am also not sure about roots, one city I really love is Berlin in Germany but at the moment I am in London which I don't love that much but I have a lot of friends here so that is fine.

    As usual, I'll just read the thread title and comment . . .

    I'm a homebody that likes to change neighborhoods every two or three years. Essentially, I get bored with my surroundings and find entertainment, intrigue, etc., in finding and exploring new - relatively - environments.

    I see this as a reaction to living in the same town for close to thirty years.

    i'm a total nomad...or would like to be anyway. i would literally move every year or two if i could...knowing i could always move back to some place that i loved if i wanted to but you really can't absorb an environment as much by just visiting. i want the experience of living there...traveling around there to new spots...going to the nearby stores or markets. i love it...i need to be able to work anywhere so i can do that. i don't know how else my restless spirit will ever be satisfied.

    Oh, I lived in Berlin for a while and loved it. New York is still my favorite city, though. Every time I come back, it's like Christmas - everything changes so quickly here...

    Hmm, I have impulses to travel all over but I am definitely a homebody overall.

    Default I'm a travelling soul

    I guess it depends on how you see things. In many ways I see the whole world as my home, and I can't confine myself to just one room in the house. I'm very much a restless soul, always on the move(physically and especially mentally). I seriously can't stay in one place for too long.

    Yet having said that, I have no tolerance for rootlessness. Roots are very important to me, and paradoxically that seems to be behind the persistent inner drive to see the world that's been within me my entire life. The problem has always been how to find the appropriate means to statisfy that inner drive.

    I don't really grow roots, and as soon as the Amazon gets wireless internet access I'm moving there.

    I'm responsible for two kids, so since that became the case I haven't roamed around like I used to or would still by nature and choice.

    yeah... 'roots' is a foreign idea to me, or has been most of my life. when people say "where do you come from?" I look at them strangely as if to say "what the hell does THAT matter?"

    Places I've lived have had an impact on me, though not in proportion to the time I've spent in them. The place I spent the least time in (France) had the biggest impact, followed by the North of England - the south of England and Home Counties (area round London), where I spent nearly 10 years of my life... virtually no impact at all.

    Wherever I live though, I'm not at home very much. I go out a lot, deliberately to random places I've not been before. I take spontaneous vacations ALL the time. I'm just about to book one, as it happens...

    I'm a homebody, but only because I'm lazy. If I did move, I wouldn't miss anything about the old place.
