Actually, this (kind of) reflects an interesting phenomenon I've noticed over the years. I grew up on a small Island (the IOM), then spent four years in the UK and now live back on the Island. I travel WAY more when I'm on the Island than when I lived in the UK. The same goes for a lot of people here. I also have family on Lewis who are constantly travelling. My immediate group of friends covers all walks of life. Housewives/Husbands, a road worker, school maintenance, teachers, police, accountants, bankers, butcher. The list goes on. And I regularly speak to friends (i.e. real, physical people I grew up with and have known for 20+ years) from all over the UK and much further afield.
Conversely, friends and family from the UK, Europe, US and Australia seem to go on holiday once or twice a year and that's about it. Rarely do they travel within their own country (unless they have a favourite "spot" - in which case, they visit it over and over). They commute to work but, once there, rarely travel more than a mile from the office other than to go home again. They wear a path to the shops and back and have a small number of favourite bars\restaurants. They'll boast "We have X cinemas here" but always go to the same one. Their network of friends are either from work or their partner's work (so they all do what they do for a living) and it all seems a bit dull.
It does seem, to my limited experience, that the larger the place you live, and the more facilities and entertainment and opportunities it offers, the less you travel outside your "comfort zone".
I also suspect the experience of people on here will differ considerably - but we're (generally) well paid, well educated types so mass-generalisations often don't apply.
