You seem to express my own experiences and feelings so accurately! I too thought I would do all kinds of traveling once I retired. I imagined I would take off for weeks at a time, once I had the time. Now it seems I am completely content traveling just once a year and then only for a week or so. I too love my home comforts. And I miss my cats if I am away too long!
