Stranger in a Strange Land | Note From Lapland

Stranger in a Strange Land | Note From Lapland | Expat Life | Scoop.it
“How can I go home when it’s not my home anymore?

It’s a strange land.

I don’t want to visit a strange land, I live in one of those. I just want to go home.”

I absolutely get that. I understand those sentiments so well. My last trip back to England was just a mere five weeks ago and I had one overwhelming feeling. It struck me to the core so much that it really took me by surprise. It didn’t feel like home. I wasn’t home! The thing is though, neither is Spain anymore homely to me. I feel like I am trapped in some kind of vortex of un-belonging. A stranger in my home country, a tourist in my adopted country.
