The road is filled with hotels, apartments, trains, planes, and suitcases. Our lives are richer because of all our experiences; swimming off the coast of Colombia, hiking in Bali, and snowboarding in Japan are all once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but time away from home will inevitably cause you to be homesick at some point. Whenever we’re homesick there are some conveniences that we miss most. One question we get all the time is:
“What do you miss most while on the road?”
Before we left we thought we would miss an endless list of items; our cars, our clothes, our kitchen. It’s common to think you’ll need your lucky jeans, comfy pajamas, and 50″ plasma to stay “comfortable while on the road.” In reality, once you land in a foreign country, your expectations change drastically. The need for fancy clothes, comfort food, and other western “things” is eliminated. Almost completely – no one is immune to homesickness and there are a few things that the need and urge for while on the road only grows stronger.
