Too much of something is truly bad. Even travel -- which is often beneficial and pleasant -- could be bad in extreme frequencies. Once-amazing sights in Spain now look similar to the Vatican or even the Aztec ruins in Mexico. When travelers feel the "sparkle" and beauty of their go-to travel destinations have gone, it is just one of the five signs of travel burnout.

According to the travel blog LL World Tour writer Lisa, she knew she was traveling too much when even the Great Pyramids of Egypt looked "meh" -- or rather plain -- to her. She said long-term travel inevitably brings about travel burnout and it shows even when one feels lazy to pack and unpack their bags.

She writes to keep travel burnout at bay, one must travel slower -- which indicates traveling faster is a symptom of travel burnout. Lisa writes that maybe one "feels homesick and want to speed up your travels to get "home" immediately. Traveling slower also has benefits, such as being able to relax and enjoy the view of everything.

According to Buzzfeed, a sign indeed of too much travel is when unpacking is equal to "moving clothes from one suitcase to another. Another thing Buzzfeed pointed out is if travelers own plenty of hotel items and "miniature things," they may be travelling too much. While having hotel complementary items and souvenirs are great, they are indicators that travelers may need to rest from their journeys a bit.

The lack of memorable experiences is another symptom. According to Lisa from LL World Tour, to create better memories in locations, experiences are needed. Immersing one's self in volunteer work or in any class, activity or anything that helps individuals "connect with travelers and locals" could help resolve this burnout. However, social interaction and extended memorable experiences are just "band-aid" solutions to travel burnout.

Lastly, staying in luxury hotels is one way to feel isolated during travels -- a sure way to feel travel burnout set in during long-term journeys. The best solution; go for an Airbnb or neighborhood-style transient residence where one would fee how to live like a local -- which better introduces the location and makes it feel like a home.
