6 Ways to Avoid Becoming a Travel Bore

It’s been four months since I returned from my solo around-the-world adventure (not that I’m counting or anything) and it has taken my poor mother to yell at me “will you PLEASE just shut up about Africa” to realise that maybe…just MAYBE…I am starting to turn into one of those travel bores. I mean it’s difficult enough having to adjust to temporarily living under the same roof as your 30 year old daughter again, let alone someone who is a travel bore.

6 Ways to Avoid Becoming a Travel Bore

So what is a travel bore?

A travel bore is either one (or all) of the following:

1) Someone who endlessly bangs on about their travels or finds ways to drop it into everyday conversations, thus beginning to sound a lot like Michelle from American Pie. For example: “guys, guys…did you know…this one time in…?”

2) Someone who continuously tries to one-up people with their travel stories or drones on about how something is “so much better” in another country

3) Someone whose social media accounts are filled with nostalgic updates, memories and travel-related articles showing they simply cannot come to terms with the fact their travels are over

Does this sound familiar? I for one am guilty as charged for some of the above.

I mean…I am even starting to bore myself saying the same things over and over again. I’ve lost track of what stories I’ve already shared and with whom I’ve shared them with. I’m pretty sure my friends and family can tell my anecdotes better than  I can now.

Don’t think I haven’t noticed when your eyes glaze over and you think to yourselves “SO Nikki….do you have anything ELSE interesting going on in your life right now?”

“Erm….if by interesting you mean that weekend break I am planning to Barcelona soon, then yes of course!”

OK, OK so I may have just had the trip of a lifetime and admit I am guilty of wanting to share every tiny detail with you all…

…but dear beloved friends and family…I must apologise if I have become somewhat of a “travel bore”

I think I am now (partially) ready to accept that yes that happened, yes it was amazing, and yes I have many great memories that will stay with me for a lifetime. But it’s old news and now it’s time to focus on the present.

So how does one become a “travel bore” no more after a long-term trip? Fear not…I have the answers…

Six Ways to Avoid Becoming a Travel Bore

1) Take a vow of travel storytelling silence

Unless of course you are asked about said stories, then tell away! However, on those occasions where you’re having a normal conversation, remember not everyone wants to hear how your Thai takeaway isn’t a patch on the Pad Thai you sampled from the street vendors of Bangkok. Country name-dropping is irritating and remember not everyone is as interested in travel as you are. Yes, it may be frustrating that none of your nearest and dearest seem interested in your life-changing experiences anymore, but that brings me to my second point…

2) Start a travel blog!

This can be your outlet to talk about travel AS MUCH as you like. With a little dedication, you can build up a following of people who have an active interest in travel and (hopefully) enjoy hearing you tell endless tales of your adventures. If writing isn’t your thing, find another creative outlet like creating photo albums. However you decide to document your travels, it’s a great way to keep hold of those memories and make you feel less like they’re going to get lost in a deep dark abyss of your brain if you don’t immediately vocalise EVERY detail of EVERY amazing experience with whoever walks through the door.

3) Reminisce with your travel buddies

We live in a digital age, and it is now easier than ever to stay connected with the many friends that you made around the world. Save stories for when you next speak to them or reach out to them when a memory pops into your head. You’re much more likely to have your enthusiasm reciprocated if you share those special moments with people who were there experiencing it with you.

4) Be social media savvy

Just like no one likes to see continuous updates about what someone is having for dinner that night, no one likes a bragger posting daily selfies of them on a deserted island……from several weeks ago. Social media is a wonderful tool for keeping friends and family updated, however old news is boring news. Keep personal accounts fresh, and if you have a blog, save nostalgic updates for your accounts associated with that blog, like Instagram for example. If your friends and family are interested, they will be following you on there anyway and can check in and out when they please.

5) Accept travel is a personal journey

I’m sure anyone who has been away for a long period of time will say that travel has transformed their life in one way or another. It’s a personal journey and the only person who can truly know and understand what that journey meant to you…is you. All those life-changing moments or new-found morals don’t need to be forced onto others. They’ll probably end up begrudging you for it anyway. Those moments are for you and you alone to learn from and fit into your own life if you choose to do so.

6) Appreciate how lucky you are

Not everyone is in a position to travel or maybe it’s not their main priority in life at the moment. But there are a lot of people who would kill to have the chance and won’t appreciate having it continuously rubbed in their face. So instead of sulking over the fact you’re no longer hopping your way around the world and that no-one wants to hear about it any more, take a moment to appreciate how fortunate you are to have experienced the things you have experienced. You have stories to tell that wouldn’t be worth telling if you were doing it all the time anyway.

And if none of that works and you’re still labelled a travel bore…well sod it. Who needs friends that can’t be happy for your happiness anyway? By the way, did I mention…that one time in Africa???

    Haha, I LOVE THIS POST. I am totally guilty of this from time to time, because nothing excites me more than sharing travel stories. I always think them the most wildly interesting anecdotal gems to have ever existed, and I think my friends will empathize fully, but yeah. It ends up sounding like you’re rubbing it in people’s faces (and they get tired of hearing about your trip that happened in 2013….oops). I love the advice about starting a travel blog and keeping that mega story sharing within your group of equally excited travel buddies. Hopefully, that group can keep expanding.

    I make jokes about this with my expat friends all the time. It frequently happens where I start a story, and go wait – was that the time in Cambodia or Taipei? And my friend is like – dude, that was when we went to our friend’s wedding in America / no that was just in Korea / etc. I’ve long since realised, this is less endearing when you are with people who don’t spend all their time traveling. Cute post, I’ll definitely pin it!

I can’t help it that that 14 months was an incredibly important part of my life and now I’ve been bitten by the travel bug.

    I’m very conscious of this! While a good amount of my friends do travel, not all of them are as passionate about the effect that it can have on you. To them, it’s just something they do, then they move on. It was difficult to talk to them about the deep connection I have with traveling. So I started my blog and sought out new friends by going to conferences and joining groups!

    I think anyone who loves to travel can easily fall into this. I do want to share all the wonder of the world with everyone. I don’t get people who are happy not going anywhere. I actually had someone tell me that recently. I could only reply by saying “There are all different kind of people in this world and you happen to be happy where you are. That’s OK.” But honestly I don’t get it.

He’s discovered travel late in life, so it’s so cute to hear him talk with joy about all the places I’ve dragged him to. However, I think some people start to glaze over after hearing him name-drop about some exotic place for the umpteenth time. Moderation is the key!

    You can be a total travel bore WHILE traveling as well. When meeting other travelers you do tend to run through the same questions over and over again, so a friend and I started to develop new conversation starters. Personal favorites, “Where would you live if you had to settle down for a year?” and “Robots — good or bad?”

    Haha I guess we’re all guilty of being a travel bore every once in a while, but that’s what happens when you’re passionate about something, right? 🙂 Great read hon, made me laugh once again 🙂

    I am quite possibly guilty of some, if not all of this. Perhaps I shall proclaim a moratorium on telling stories from my last adventure for a while, especially considering it is only 4 ish months until my next one.. with a small visit to Germany before that to heed some of your advice, to visit one of my travel buddies from last years adventures.

    I actually started a travel blog so that I could natter on about my travels without boring people anymore! My sister gets so mad at me – I don’t care, SHE MUST GO AND SEE THE WORLD (okay I definitely am a travel bore… maybe I should read this post again…).

    Omg! I love this post! You are sooooo right. We are addicted to travels in so many ways that we simply forget that others may not be as interested. I can’t wait to meet more people who love traveling as much as k do so we can all “go wild”! Lol

    Very good article, I think No. 5 and 6 are recommended ! I suppose you have to judge who will be interested, most people of course won’t be but some will. I know a few people who are always keen to ask and so I can bore on without fear of retribution, whilst others I wouldn’t even dream of mentioning the dreaded ‘T’ word ha ha !! Funnily enough among our travel circle we say that you become a ‘when I’, thus: ‘When I was in…..’zzzzz Happy travels for us at least !!
