Can we ever go back home? That is the question which Dinka Souzek considers in this wonderful essay about returning to our native country after having lived abroad.
For those who have never lived in another country, it may seem like a strange question to ask. Yet, for those of us who have lived in other countries, it is simply part of our reality (good and bad).

What do you think? Can we ever go back to that which we had before? Why do you think things change so much for us when we live abroad? Do we miss out on things back home and therefore feel strange coming home? Or are we the ones who have changed to such a great degree that home feels different now – not as comforting and familiar?
Please take a moment to let us know what you think!
