So, in the past year or so, I've gone to Europe, to Montreal, to D.C. For someone who normally hates travel, that's a fair bit of travel -- and I enjoyed most of it.

So I've been reconsidering my aversion. And I have a hypothesis: I think that most of my aversion to travel is aversion to airplanes.

When we traveled by car, train, or bus, I did basically fine. I found nine or ten hours on a bus perfectly acceptable, even though two hours on a plane is horrible. I hate planes, I hate airports, I hate airport security.

Buses aren't fantastically comfortable, but they're fine. Driving is tiring, but fine. Trains are wonderful. Flying sucks.

Lis may yet succeed in getting me to go on more trips. . . .
