oooh miss so many things, just a few:

-good cafe creme and goats cheese salads
-pints - a schooner is just an odd size for a beer
-spanish time i.e. siesta

but most of all hearing accents and other languages around me all the time - its the thing that makes it most real to me that i'm exploring and seeing new places and learning new things.

Quoting cookieyum

and for the life of me i cannot find a hot man who isn't attached, gay or arrogant.

So true!!!!

Also I've been thinking about Green Papaya Salad. The best was from the lovely lady at Papaya cafe on Phi Phi. I miss it that place

If I could buy Green Papaya here I'd make it myself!:)

Oh mon dieu!

I'm not even at home now, but now I think of all the things I miss, too!

And I'm getting hungry. Isn't it fascinating that we can remember tastes of different foods for that long?

My list:
'Insomnia' coffee in Dublin
Swiss Chocolate
'Innocent' smoothies
Fast Food from 'Nude' (the salads were great!! And the orange-rasberry juice)
Bar in Athens (the one were they had only drinks and deserts)
White Chocolate Ice cream from 'Perché no!', Florence

New Zealand: L&P soft drink, the kiwi accent and the cheap sushi.

Thailand, Vietnam & Laos: The food!!! All of it. Mmmm.

South America: Cheese on a stick on the beach in Brasil. The Bolivian market ladies. Heat and total relaxation. The Andes. Speaking Spanish.

I miss the discovering of new places, the breathtaking views,the weather, the ocean and seegulls, nature (too many houses here!!), the exitement of travelling, the simplicity of this way of living, the absence of too much stress (I need a little bit though)..... but above all this, I miss the FREEDOM! The not being stuck on a desk having a typical 9 to 5 job, living in this big aquarium filled with only grey fishes, to return each day to the same house, having the same daily, weekly routines....
Grz,

My feelings toward travelling are rather ambivalent; I am glad being at home, but if I could, I'd leave again tomorrow.

Things most missed: Argentine mate and wine. Who could bring me some mate leaves from Buenos Aires?

What is it that you miss about the mate? The taste (which is, according to me, nasty) or the social thing of hanging around a bunch of Argentines sharing a cup? Because you won't get that at home even if you get hold of the tea. I'm sorry to say.

It's the taste, actually. I started drinking it as a coffee substitute (I used to drink WAY to much coffee). The social thing is good, too, but as you say, irreplaceable.
