How to keep your home safe when you travel

•••
Spending over a third of the year traveling, I am often away from home for weeks and months at a time. I feel lucky that so far nothing bad has ever happened, but every once in a while I hear stories from friends and acquaintances about robberies and those stories are usually pretty scary. So far I have had to rely on my own optimism and trust that everythin[...]

Rediscovering Mexico: When a Mexican Expat moves back Home

•••
For the past 8 years, I have lived outside Mexico and travelled to different continents to see “the world out there”. From Europe to South America and the Caribbean, I have seen outstandingly beautiful places and eaten the most exquisite dishes. However, all this time spent abroad grew in me the wish to get to know my own country - a place I barely knew. I r[...]

How To Feel at Home Anywhere

•••
There comes a point in every traveler’s life where they have to deal with homesickness – for me, this time tends to be around the holiday season. I’m crazy about Christmas, I love the quality time I get to spend with my loved ones who all head home for the celebrations, I thoroughly enjoy Christmas markets, I live for baking – and eating! – Christmas cookies[...]

My Strong but Rocky Relationship with my Hometown

•••
After three rewarding and enlightening months of traveling around Europe, one backpack, waves of memories and great feelings, I wanted to end my nomadic lifestyle in order to be home for the holidays in December. I come from an island in the Indian Ocean, called Reunion Island. It is undoubtedly beautiful, sunny and laid back, with white sandy beaches tha[...]

The Pros and Cons of Feeling 'At Home'

•••
'Home' is a concept I think about a lot. It can mean such different things to different people, and it can mean different things to the same person throughout their lifetime. Some people are blessed with the unique ability to feel at home anywhere. These people should count themselves very fortunate, for this doesn't come quite so easily to the rest of us.  [...]

The Meaning of Home when you always Travel

•••
I come from a small town in the north east of France called Châlons-en-Champagne. I was born and raised there, in the Champagne region. Even though it is what I call HOME, I am sure that you have never heard of it - and that's OK. In a way it is funny for me to talk about HOME. If you would ask my friends and family, they would say I am never home. They a[...]

Why Brussels is the ONE for Me

•••
When I was a teen, I used to escape the Belgian suburbs by hopping on a train to Brussels. It was the city after all - the city by default. Nevertheless, I held a great deal of prejudice against Brussels, which I thought was definitely too humid and colorless. You see, I was born in Los Angeles but my family moved to my dad’s hometown in Belgium when I was s[...]

Of Life-Long Friendships and Long-Term Travel

•••
After seven amazing months abroad in Sydney, Australia, living the dream and finding the love of my life I had to return and go back home. I admit, 7 months is not really a very long time away - so everything should be the same when you come back home, right? And let me tell you what - it was. However, what was not the same anymore, was me! Moving [...]

15 Ways to Feel like a Traveller in your own Home

•••
We all know that feeling of post-travel blues. You return home, full of stories and adventures, and after the initial joy of reuniting with your family and friends, it all wears off, and you are once again dreaming of hitting the road, seeking new unknown places. I’ve been guilty of this feeling every time I have come back from a trip, but this time I decid[...]
