Im a new place type of guy. I enjoy going back but there are so many places in the world I have never been. Plus growing up we went to the same place multiple times during the year. I enjoy my wanderlust. I also enjoy returning specially to good friends or family. The best is when I can get my friends or family to go visit some place new with us!

Alot of changes over the decades.

heh heh heh - at 5 or 10 yrs between visits you really see some changes. . I suspect if you lived there - it would be the slowly boiled frog phenomena.
Yep, thanks to Street View, now you can go back to old places any time, and the change is shocking. I see that some two-lane dirty roads on which I used to ride are now 4-lane highways. Maybe this is what they mean by you can't go home again.

I think you mean, "there is no there there."

Thomas Wolfe couldn't go home again because he wrote about it.
