When I set out for my trip around the world, I was searching for new experiences, filled with authentic local flare, far, far away from what I called “home.” But as the holidays set in, the vagabond in me felt something strange, something horrifying, and something that isn’t in my vagabonding blood. I felt…homesick. Where do you spend the holidays when the world is your home and how do you spend Christmas away from home?
Holidays are a time to spend with family, sitting around a table and chatting about life. Yes, that even includes time with crazy Uncle Lou. Even constant change gluttons can miss the holiday time.
Long-term travel isn’t just a survival of the fittest, but a survival to adapt. So how do you adapt to a holiday season without your family?
