I know everyone on this site has a passion about travelling the globe

but is there any place like home?

can you compare the best place you've ever been with home?

I really like America. I'm just deaply dismayed and dissapointed with it's current leadership, and all those who voted them in.

For some reason I found Brussels a lot like home. I think it was just the circumstances, though. It was a short stopover after two weeks in the South of Spain in October, which was warm and bright and very laid back. Brussels was chilly and grey and everyone was dressed in dark colours (my favorite) and looking for somewhere to warm their hands and have a beer. It was WAY more like home in October.

Well, it might be because I lived in England for a while but I always feel at home there.

I felt really at home in Boston and Rio (strange but true!!)

I also feel really at home in a couple of cities other than home, Edinburgh (maybe cos we have close friends and I was born there) and Manchester (which I have fallen in love with :) )

yeah i don't know if you;ll ever find somewhere that feels exactly like home but i reckon there are places i could live for extended periods of time. I'm from Sydney, Australia and the lifestyle here is pretty relaxed compared with other places but i reckon it is possible to be able to live elsewhere. You can always make it your new and better home!

I used to spend summers in Achill Island. Its my favourite place in the world, but im not from there.

Some places can feel like home but as soon as you imagine that you might stay forever, cabin fever and itchy feet set in....time to go.

Home for me is where my folks and best friends are, always will be. If they all moved together to a new place, it would be my new home. Its not about location.

well said weejoe.

if your loved ones are with you then it doesn't matter where you are now does it?

Home will always be home I guess. There are some places that I've visited that I'm tempted to say 'oh I wish i could live there'. The reality though would, more often than not, be very different than the initial romantic idea.

The place that has reminded me most of home would have to be New Zealand. The people have a very European/British sensability and humour that (even though you're on the other side of the world) really reminds you of home.

Whereas culturally and socially Australia seems to be influenced more and more by America, New Zealand still seems far more European. Hell, they even find Monty Python funny, which kind of proves my point.
