Top signs you're travel addict

The travel bug hit me in my teens and hasn't really left since then. I'm can probably not be called globetrotter crossing the world over and over again, but I enjoy new experiences, cultures and people. If I had a the times and means I'm sure I would do it a lot more.

Nomadic Matt has come up with a great list with the top signs you're a travel addict. Many signs that are true even to me The Globetrotter Light.
You start all your stories with "When I was in…"
You only TIVO the travelchannel.
You read guidebooks for fun.
You plan trips you will nevertake.
You always ask “where people are from?” even when you know.
Youwere flip flops in the shower.
You take toilet paper everywhere you go outof habit.
You have more than one currency in your wallet just in case.
You keep a packed suitcase handy.
Your Ipod only has songs related to traveling.
You run multiple travel websites.
You don’t have paintings on the wall, you have maps.
If you haven’t been anywhere in a few months, youget the shakes.
You spend two hours each day reading travel blogs and travelwebsites.
When you thinking of prices, you value things in terms how many
days in your next destination it costs. "That T.V. is 10 days in Paris! Let’s get this one- it’s only 5 days!"
You pretend you are a travel writer.
Some people voted for Barack Obama, you voted for Anthony Bourdain.
When people ask you about your hobbies, all your answers contain the word "travel." Some people cry when the leave home. You cry when you have to go back.
