I think every person has his own way of traveling. If I'll be given the chance to travel to Rome, I wouldn't waste my time visiting museums and places I don't like. I would go to places that that is interesting for me and watch birds and take photos of great scenic views there.

All the better for people such as yourselves with no interest in art to go on your own adventures, rather than crowding the museums and pretending to be interested.

I have often wondered about our desire to photograph landmarks rather than people. It's now incredibly hard to take an original shot of, say, the Eiffel Tower as it has been photographed so many times by so many people. Given that, isn't it better to purchase a postcard of the monument and save the time you would have taken garnering photos to go and relish the culture of a place?

I also love this idea of the mini-journey to your neighbours or to your Grandmother's home town. It fits with a current Zeitgeist. Adventurer Alastair Humphreys has talked about this with his microadventures (http://www.alastairhumphreys.com/adventures/year-microadventure/) and I have written about it too (http://www.rob-houghton.com/2012/04/08/microadventures/).
