You're happily settled in to your routine abroad. Suddenly, as the tip tap of your shoes echoes through the historic center of a picturesque Italian town, a scent or sound sneaks up behind you and brings back vivid memories of home in an unexpected nostalgic instant... and depending on your hormone levels, it might even make you cry!
Yes, you shake your head in disbelief. Since you are quite happy and the funny thing was that before you left, you couldn't get enough of the country you were moving to!
Aaah, that's the way it works sometimes! But at least I was happy to know that I can still watch my favorite shows online!
Of course, in the end, you will still be sitting in centuries old apartment building while a cute guy stares at you from the window a few feet in front and Italian sirens merge with passing Italian conversations on the street below. But if you close the blinds and put on earphones you might be able to transport your self for a few hours to your other far away "home".
Now, if I could only cure my burrito food cravings in Rome, that would be great!
