Most of my life has been spent traveling around every 1-4 years. I quite enjoy traveling around the world and seeing different cultures and landscapes... Is this affinity shared by any other INTP's on this board?

Sounds like the exact opposite of the INTP:s i've encountered

I've been to 30 countries, I love the world and feel at peace when interaction between people is known to be temporary, allows us to be our full-selves with small sporadic groups.

Now I'm landlocked and looking for a way out :x

I'm pretty content just to traverse through the wildlife around me, but I go slowly insane when not surrounded by or in close proximity to nature. I have the desire to travel but I think I'd be content with just finding a desirable landscape to live in.

Yes, I have always been attracted to travel and spent most of my twenties exploring new countries, or saving to.

I love the world and feel at peace when interaction between people is known to be temporary, allows us to be our full-selves with small sporadic groups.
I'm the same. The irony is that some of the people I have felt closest to in my life are people who I have met quite fleetingly. Generally I don't like Facebook, but it is great for keeping in touch with people you meet on the road.

I have mostly travelled by myself, meeting people as I go. I travelled around South East Asia with an ENTP friend but we were on quite different wavelengths about the trip and got on each other's nerves a fair bit. We differed greatly on how much social interaction we needed with other people.

Having said that, when backpacking by myself I have found that if I go a week or so without meeting someone I have a rapport with, I end up re-routing the trip to stay at a guesthouse where I think I will be likely to meet other people. This can feel quite tedious and inauthentic after a while. It ends up being a pendulum dynamic of wanting to socialise and then wanting to be a lone wolf again.

I would like to have another go at travelling with a companion if I can find the right person. It would allow me to enjoy going to more isolated places. I also think I have tended to overlook getting to know locals in favour of meeting other travellers. In the future I want to put more effort into learning the language and culture before I go.

On the whole I have visited some incredible places and met some great people. My travelling history is definitely a big part of who I am. It has informed my world view in a myriad of ways.

My travels have influenced my understanding of political ideology. When I was at high school I was very confident in my leftist views, but later when I travelled through former Soviet-bloc countries I was quite coy about getting into a political debate with someone who grew up under that regime.

I am interested in Scandanavian-style socialism and I am sure my world view will change if I ever make it up there. If I get the impression that it is a good system I will probably become an advocate for it, but the opposite scenario could also occur. I guess that is quite an arrogant attitude (like being an inspector of ideology) but it is how I function. I think this is one of the reasons an INTP will like to travel - it is an opportunity to assess different ideas in their manifest form.

I like to explore, when I am in new place I feel fascinated. In my mind I very often be in many various places, always in nature (forests, mounaints, lakes, etc.). I don't like exploring cultures, because they are no important for me, as people generally. I have desire to be close with nature.
I prefer walking, and walking very, very slow, then I can think very clearly and sometimes feel beauty.
