Home

I´ve lived in California for almost 20 years, and I love where I live. But I miss three things:

Places 

Food




  And,most importantly,people!

It´s been great to play tourist a bit!


Questions: Do you live close to where you grew up? Or far away? If so, what, if anything, do you miss?


Be well,
Andrea

  1. I love pretty far from my parents and I definitely miss the family and friends I have there the most!

  2. Welcome home Andrea, great that you had such a good time.

    I live for about a 35 minute drive from where I grew up. What I miss about where I came from is the woods. We had plenty of those and none in the village where I live now.

  3. I love far from my family and only get to visit them about once a year. I wish I could get them here more!

  4. I've been living in different places my whole life... so i don't feel home to any city or I feel home to any city that I've lived. What I define as home is where my family is! :) I miss my people, not just my parents, but also close relatives and childhood friends.
    how was your trip/hike?

  5. I live pretty close! (from NC, raised in AL, live in GA) I will say Atlanta, GA, is VERY different from Enterprise, AL. I do miss the small town, knowing everybody, calling my doctors on their cell phones, etc. But I also love the convenience of a big city!

    These pictures are beautiful by the way - I'll be in CA for my first time on Tuesday!

  6. Well let me see here... I was born in Connecticut but at the age of 14 I went shipped off to boarding school in Colorado and stayed there for 2.5 years. I missed my parents so VERY much and wound up moving back for for the last two years of high school. Then I went back to Colorado for college and my parents moved to Wyoming (we we were pretty close)... and now I live in LA and my parents are still in Wyoming, so while we are both on the western part of the US.. I am still far enough away from them to be homesick every so often! I love my parents so very much!

  7. I actually live right down the street from where I grew up :) Nick grew up in a different suburb, but I easily convinced him that my suburb was better! So, its great, my parents are super close (nice for me!) and his mom and sisters aren't far either.

    I hope you are enjoying your trip, Andrea!

  8. For most of my life I've lived in San Diego and this is where my family is, but I've moved away several times and each time I did, there were things that I missed...when I was in Texas, I missed the hills and the ocean....when I was in Chicago, I missed the weather!....when I was in Virginia I missed the absence of mosquitoes! Of course, I always missed my family and friends, but enjoyed the adventure everywhere I went. Hope you're having a wonderful trip back home!!!

  9. Looks like you are having a great time Andrea. (and your Dad looks great! Hope he feels well!!) I live a ferry ride away from my parents. It's about 3 hours to get there. I wish I was closer and not at the mercy of the ferry schedule. However, our life is here right now, so we just figure it out. Stay safe over there!!!

  10. I live close to where I grew up but miss living in the South. I miss the weather (even the humidity), the food, the laid back approach.

  12. Welcome back! I love California! So pretty!
    I was born in Vegas and still live here. For me, having my family here makes the biggest reason why I love it as much as I do!

  13. According to Google Maps, I live 2600 miles from where I grew up in Tucson, AZ. My husband and I traveled there last October. It was the first time I had been back in 8 years, and the first trip there for hubby. We had a great time!

    I miss the Mexican food, the sunshine, the mountains, the outdoor pools and the monsoon thunderstorms in the middle of the summer. I don't really want to live in the desert again, but it is a lot of fun to visit.

  14. Somehow I feel that Southern California, where I live now is my home in spite of living almost half of my live in Sao Paulo (Brasil), maybe because all my family are here. But I sure miss the food and friends from Brasil :-)

  15. I grew up in Indiana and sometimes really miss things like the fields but most of all my family. Although I have to say that after 15 years CA feels very much like my home. I just realized I've lived here almost half my life.

  16. I have always lived in so cal. hardly ever traveled so it's total culture shock for me to even leave the zip code.

    I would get homesick fast i bet!

    glad you are enjoying your trip (are you still there???)

    :)
