What motivates people to travel?
The same as for this seagull, many people assume the best place in the world is one they live in. They know everyone and everything so why to go anywhere else? If it happens to be a touristic place, then even better. Others are coming to visit their home town falling in love with it, and supporting their argument that staying at home is the best choice.
The truth is that we all are connected in some way and deep inside each of us, there is a desire to learn about other people, their life, cultures, nature and customs. Today different TV programs or movie theaters are bringing all of that into our world.
