well, been a while since i was here, but i recently have come up with a question which has in turn brought me back.

see, let’s start off with an example. Joe lives at point A. lived in point A all of his life and one day decides to get into his car and take a trip to point B. he has never been to point B. he travels to B and it seems like the trip takes a long time. after he arrives, he spends a few hours there or whatever and heads back home. the trip back to A does not seem to take as long though. it’s the exact same distance and time, but the trip just seems shorter. im sure all of you know what im talking about. so here is where my question comes in. let’s say that later on, Joe decides to move to point B (or C or D, actually i dont think this matters much) as in to live there. he settles in and now lives his new life at point B and decides to take a trip back to his original home, point A. which trip would seem like it would take longer, the trip to A or the trip back to his home at B. let us say that he has lived in point B for several years or so before taking a trip back out to A.

possibly, just so we know that there are no flaws, let’s in fact change B to C, a completely new location that he has never been to. obviously, the first few trips to C would be like he was traveling from A and would thus seem shorter than the trips back to A, but what about after that? after he gets settled in, which trip would seem like it would take longer?

this has been really bugging me for a while, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
