It’s day 19 and I’m feeling homesick…

homesick, Sri Lanka

So far I have felt amazing on this trip, to be honest it’s felt like one big holiday!

I was origionally apprehensive about Dubai but I ended up falling in love with it’s exotic similarity. I was also nervous about my trip to Sri Lanka; a place that is not really established on the backpacker trail but I feel that throwing myself in to the deep end has done me the world of good.

I’m currently in Kandy, a mountainous region in the centr of Sri Lanka. The climate here is a little cooler and the architecture of the town is very colonial.

This has made me think about England. I feel homesick.

I actually feel a bit guilty about being homesick. I am having the time of my life and am blessed with different experiences everyday. I actually had one of the most exciting days of my life yesterday (I will tell you all about it really soon or check out my Facebook page for more info!).

I love travel but I’m feeling nostalgic about England.

Life is so much easier in England, i’ts very different here and very hectic. I miss my family, the time difference makes it really hard to skype and keep in touch. I’m also craving a proper sandwich. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!

So today I’m having a rest day. I’m not going to go sight seeing just chill at and near the hostel and think about my travels.



I have set myself 3 mini challenges. I actually completed one today- to eat rice and curry with my hands! (It’s surprisingly easy and it feels quite naughty!). The other 2 are; buy a fruit that I do not recognise and eat it and try meditation for an hour. I hope to try these later today.

How do my fellow travellers feel about homesickness? Do you have any tips on what to do if it hits me again?
