I go nuts.
Spend/waste money on ebay on things I must have/don't need
read about what other people are doing - Pleasure/pain/jealousy
Don't work as hard as I should so it takes longer to save up
When it's really bad I get the photos out

If the weather is half decent I go camping once a week

Is there life between trips.............

When I come back from a trip, I update my website with stories and pictures, make a scrapbook with stories and pictures and start planning the next trip.
I also make short trips because I need to practice to stay in shape ;-)

In between I go to my job as an ICT specialist at a big bank because I need money for the next trip and some other minor things like childrens schoolbooks, mortage, food and other boring things like that.

I work and try not to spend the cash on e-bay stuff I don't need! Actually if you want a serious money pit that'll keep you away from places that'll frighten your older relatives, you can get a classic/old bike and spend the time trying to make it go
