If you read this blog regularly, you will know that food is a connector to home … but what other ways are useful to remind you of – and keep you connected to – your life before your big move? Living abroad has a unique set of emotions when creating a space of your own.
It is encouraging to have something familiar around you, so I thought I would ask, what do you have, or need, to feel connected to home? Even if you do not live abroad, there will be things that you have around you that make you feel settled – what are those items?
I find that food is a great connector for me, taste brings back so many memories plus it is so deeply ingrained in our experiences of family and home. I also like to have objects around my home that reflect where I came from, and personal items from my life on display (see how I made the inspiration board pictured above, here).
What would be your top three things to bring with you if/when you move abroad? Is there anything you did not bring with you that you really wish you had?
