My preferred travel style does not involve counting travel time in weeks, but in months or years. Your paragraph on "Integrating the Travel Vibe Into Your Lifestyle" rang very true to me. Making long term travel a long term comitment does require keeping this idea central to most decisions in your life: choice of studies, of line of work, of spouse, of socialisation habits. It requires more creativity (visa, employment and citizenship issues are not always as easily solved as finding a babysitter) but this adds to the level of commitment you need... and to how rewardingt the experience becomes.
Your last paragraph made me laugh - to me the dichotomy makes no sense. I am both a traveler and a homebody! I actually dislike being away from my partner, my dog, my garden and my kitchen for more than a couple of days. But over the last 6 years, "home" has been 7 different places on 3 different continents.
