Do you feel homesick when you travel? Some people feel homesick if they spend just one night in a different place. But other people say they never get homesick. Read Kat’s quotation and then let us know which type of person you are.

“Hey, friends. Kat here. So, even though Nicaragua has been great and all, I can’t help but feel homesick. When you’re homesick, this means that you really miss home because you’ve been away for a period of time. I’m just a little homesick. I miss my family, and my home, my room! But luckily, I’ll be leaving soon, even though I’ve really enjoyed it here. Has there been a time that you’ve felt homesick before? Let me know in the comments below.”

2 months ago I got homesick. I’ve suffered so much from homesick and culture shock because I left my home and came to US with husband and I couldn’t used to the lifestyle here!. I’m sorry for my poor heart this was first time away from home and family

Last year I had a lot of traveling. I felt lonely when I stay alone in night. I miss my family, my room and my soft blanket. That’s just a few days, seem like a short time but I recognized about homesick effect to me.

I travel a lot. Wether I feel homesick depends on where I am. Somtimes I feel homesick after one single night.  


But if I`m in Florida  I feel like I could stay for ever.

Yeah, definitely. I have had the same feeling. I had been living in Beijing, China before I came to Vancouver, Canada 1 year ago. I got an excellent job in Vancouver and that’s why I decided to take on the new life in Vancouver. So far although everything seems good, the high quality air, the natural beautifies and the friendly people, I still feel homesick every now and then. I miss my dear friends, my family memebers and the delicious food in China. I think I will be going back to my hometown in a few months.
