Gah!! That’s really the only word to describe homesickness. It’s not that I want to go home, but all I really wanted was to have a fat veggie burger, a cream tea, and cuddle my dog, then get back to life here in China.

Homesickness is such an inconvenience, because if I were to give in to the way I was feeling and went back home I know for sure I would be bored within the first 1 hour and want to jet off somewhere else again.

The comforts of home really linger in the mind, when you don’t have them. The feeling went away once I had a nap, of course just like a child I was having an inward tantrum wanting to go home, but once I slept and ate something I was back to normal.

I still miss home, and being able to see my friends, family, and dogs everyday, but I decided to come here and god dammit I will follow it through!

A group of us are planning our trip for the October break, which at the moment sounds in.cred.ible! I’m so excited for it, fingers crossed everything goes to plan! I will keep you posted on whats’a happnin’

Here’s to home comforts and new adventures.

    I had quite a bout of homesickness today myself. I’ve been living Asia for 8 years now. The longer I’m here the more often I get it, oddly enough. You’re right to see it through and you’d be bored if you went home. Totally agree! Good luck.

      Oh wow, where in Asia are you living? And thank you for the advise 😀 I will do my best to see it through. Once I go home I will definitely appreciate home comforts so much more :p

        I live in Taiwan. I lived in Malaysia as well for a while. You’ll always miss things (mainly people I think) from home, but ultimately you know you’re doing what you’re doing for a reason!! I would get homesick for Taiwan if I went back to the states for too long especially the first few years!
