This will be the last #HomeAwayFromHome post for a while. But they will come back again later in the year, so if you do want to take part, leave a comment or send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org, including a photo and short piece of writing about the place that makes you feel at home.
Thank you so much for everyone’s support on this amazing project. It turned out to be so interesting.
“This is a recent solo trip I took to Hvar, Croatia and couldn’t have felt more at home. It was like I was right back on my porch in New Hampshire overlooking the lake writing and drinking a beer. Perfection.”
“I’m currently doing my first season working abroad and have been placed on a small campsite in the Dordogne, France. Despite not knowing anyone, I felt completely comfortable with the area as well as the campsite itself. It feels like home because the majority of customers are British which is a great way to hear the stories from the UK plus, the other couriers are so welcoming and encourage me to explore the area. The nearest town is Sarlat-la-Canéda – a medieval town which hasn’t changed much since with little alley ways everywhere as well as the main square which is surrounded by cafes and bars. The town hold markets every Saturday which attracts many tourists including myself.” – Jess
“Ecuador opened my eyes to the beauty of nature and quickly became a home away from home.”
“Colors, culture, nature, sports, music, sea and fun: all in one extraordinary city, Barcelona! I felt home there just some hours after I landed. I was walking through the sunny streets in Tibidabo, which I knew only thanks to great Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s books, drinking a Boqueria’s juice, and I felt like i was finally in the right Place. What a cool experience <3”
“I feel at home in Seoul because of the diversity of things to do here. I can go hiking on the weekends, see stunning views and drink local liquor up there with the locals. I can visit Hongdae for shopping and browsing at the local art market where university students display their handmade jewelry, purses and paint clients’ portraits. I can visit ancient palaces and massive fortress walls and gates doted around the city. I can wonder through the central streets downtown and stumble on cultural performances, drumming, royal processions, ancient singing styles, dance and others which are mesmerising to watch.”
