Things You Miss the Most When You Travel

It might be silly to think  that there might be things we can miss when we travel. After all, traveling is meant to be a for of an escape sometimes. But being on the road constantly will also have you miss lots of things back home.

 

What are the things you miss the most when you travel?.

1. Family

Whether it is the family you were born in, or the family you chose to have. Eventually, you do miss them and possibly abuse the whats-app feature on your phone and create a group for everything and everyone with the title  ‘FAMILY something…’  and keep them up to date on every move or so that you make, sending images and videos and even voice notes when you are walking in the pouring rain in Europe! Home, is a person, not just a place. One moment after another.

2. Decent Internet

Regardless whether you are on an adventure, traveling and camping in the Bolivian jungle or in a 5 star hotel in NYC, you still miss the decent internetMaking sure you don’t run out of data (God Forbid) and even then, when you do run out of internet data, it could be the most complicated mission to re-connect.

3. Healthy Food

It could go both ways, but not for long. You could miss your crepe aux chocolat with strawberries and bananas every morning served to you in bed, but you will crave for the healthy meals you make at home.

4. Familiar Space

A place where you were always used to find your inner peace. It could be the Shala you practice yoga in or that couch at your home. The energy around that room.

4. Friends

The person you met a year ago, who inspired you, who changed you. The person you laughed with 5 months ago and nearly wet yourself from laughter. The person you had lunch with and talked about how each one of you can grow. The person who just listened to your problems. The person you met 20 years ago in university and ever since haven’t stop being friends with and the person you accidentally bump into in the airport in London on your way back home or the person you met during your last trip to Vietnam. These people are those who you miss the most and sometimes, because you are always worlds apart, you can lose touch with. But still, those are the people that linger in your mind during take off & landing or on a bus, even when you had an adventure of a lifetime and wish they were there.
