You travel much more in the pages of a book than you do with your feet.
In other words, just because you can not talk about your personal experiences, you can still be an engaged person in the conversation by asking about their account and talking about the experiences of people you have read about.
Travel books from the 1930's are good. Also, old National Geographics are good.
I grew up traveling with my family (my parents are immigrants from Europe) and had a passion for it. As a teen, I wanted a girlfriend with whom I could share my love of travel. I ended up marrying a woman who was not well traveled and have since seen a large portion of the world with her! So, for me, I loved being able to introduce her to it. She is now my equal in travel.
I hate traveling, as I always seem to get sick, and feel horrible!! I like being home, and I ADORE the ones that love the close, intimacy, and being 'HOME'!! Just because someone travels a lot, and has gone places, doesn't mean they are a good 'fit' as a partner!!
No one cares, seriously. Especially here in the US. The minute you start listing places off peoples start to glaze over. It's a weird to judge people honestly. I find people that love to travel, have never traveled. It's like saying your a fan of skydiving having never been.
I really don't think it matters. Not a turn off or a deal breaker. I've been to like 14 countries so far so if a girl has never left her country it doesn't matter to me. If she can hold a conversation then it's okay.
For me it depends on the circumstances: if she traveled the world on daddy's money it wouldn't impress me much, if she had to make her own way so understandably didn't have money to travel I won't hold it against her.
