Because they are subconsciously afraid to see how other countries and people really are, and thus how their country really is.
They are afraid of giving up the idea that the US is the best and the only developed place on earth, and like to maintain all the clichés and funny opinions they have on other countries/people.
Thinking they're the superior humans only works as long as they haven't seen the truth.

its so important to travel..opens the mind..helps you see through lots of spiiiin
Matthew 16>18
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it..
Peter was crucified..on Vatican Hill

"Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai. ~Leo Tolstoy


You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy."
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?

..Immanuel ,The Christ (Sermon Of The Mount)


“WHAT YOU DO TO OTHERS YOU DO TO YOURSELF FOR THAT IS THE LAW..AND THE PROFIT"

Preach the Gospel at all times..and when necessary use words..

They do, just not to Germany. Go to Mexico, you'll meet nothing but Americans. They can take a trip and get all their dental done at the same time. It's a beautiful thing.

Re: Why do Americans not travel ?
I traveled a lot and i love it. Infact, when I'm away from home I'm a lot happier.

Besides the states, I've traveled to Australia, England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. It was part of a Student Ambassador Program to promote peace through understanding of dif cultures.

Money is no excuse, I devoted one year per trip to saving money and fundraising to cover the expenses plus a little extra.

So not all Americans are lazy and don't travel ;)

Well put, but this can and should be applied to any citizens of any country - not just the U.S.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able, and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

Re: Why do Americans not travel ?
Travel to any 'emerging' or poor nation and you'll realise that alot of problems people have are purely 'first world' ones; i.e fairly trivial.

I've travelled quite a bit (I'm a Brit living in BC right now) it's always good to go home but meeting people from different cultures really sharpens ones perspective and makes you realise how much we all have in common, it's a beautiful thing.

you should try travelling to places with a different language and culture than your own! It's much more interesting. Why do you need to promote peace with the UK and Australia, when they are already allies and are basically in the same category as the Americans? (culturally, I mean)

I totally agree with you!

I've been to Ireland, France, Holland, Spain, Belgium,Yugoslavia (the former), Italy, Switzerland,Sicilly, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Thailand, Cambodia, Turkey, Maccau, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia, Austrailia, Peru, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Sirra Leone, California, Washington State and Finally Canada (B.C).

I had the best times in the non English speaking countries by far...

Re: Why do Americans not travel ?
Travel is good, opens the mind and spirit, but it's not necessary to do that. In fact, it's a fairly privileged thing to do and can develop into kind of a colonialist mentality exploiting a favorable exchange rate. Truth be told, some of the wisest I've known never left the farm, remain close to the earth, simple with an unbribed soul.

Because in the "American Dream" world that they live in, the USA is the best country in the world, and they care not for anyone else.

Sort of like how a lot of em have big cars. Trying so hard to buy in.

Imagine if half of them woke up?!

I agree! I've always wanted to go to Costa Rica, India, and Greece. I'm pretty young so I'd say so far my traveling has been pretty good X) Right now I'm back in college so my studies have been taking up my time/expenses but i really wana continue seeing the world.

also, just because our governments are allies, doesn't mean their people like us. In fact, a lot of the English looked down on us American kids because our money is worth less and because we seceeded from the brits.

In australia, i stayed with this really nice family but they orginally had very poor views of us. when we got off the bus they literally asked me, "where are the americans?" they didn't realize how diverse we are. this is their exact words: "We were expecting blond cheerleading bimbos" I laughed because thats just aussi humor. during the 3 days i stayed with them, we shared so much about each others' culture and country that our previous opinions completely changed. that aussi family now bases their views on americans because of me and the other ambassadors and what i taught them. they taught me a lot too.

Re: Why do Americans not travel ?
Sadly, I think a lack of vacation time plays a big factor. Allot of Americans are lucky to get 2 to 3 weeks vaction in a year. How many vacation days does the average European individual get?
