part of the 30 Days of Indie Travel Project

if we’re talking buildings and physical locations, sure, i’ve made temporary homes in hotels, 10-bed hostel rooms, and on people’s couches, but i define my real home as anywhere that meets all of the following conditions:

  • surrounded by good friends and/or family
  • homemade food
  • can do laundry for free or cheap
  • somewhere i can work so i can fund my next trip

so while recently this has meant The Place My Mortgage Payments Go Toward, it most definitely doesn’t have to be.

spiritual homes, though? i have too many of those to count. every time i make a deep connection to a certain place, whether it be a person, place or thing, a little mental home gets built in my psyche. 

it can be something as simple as a parisian community vegetable garden i stumbled upon at dusk…


…or sitting watching angkor wat at dawn…

…or watching my favorite german band playing their final farewell concert…


…wherever my heart gets full, there is my home.
