Sardinia – the place I call home

I suppose, I should let you in on my little secret. It’s only been a secret since last Wednesday and since then I’ve slept, a lot, not even realizing this secret.

So here it is …

After six months away from the best island in the world, I have returned to the place my soul calls home. I have returned to nature, mountains, pecorino, local honey and Cannonau! I have returned to the only place where peace envelopes me.

I have returned to Sardinia! EJA!

How do you feel returning home after months away?

  1. Welcome home Jennifer. I feel the same way about Rome. This summer we’ll go back to the States for a wedding and to be with friends and though I look forward to this, I know
    I’ll feel the pull to return. Italy has us on a short leash.

    I left Canada at age 23. 40 years, many travels, several homes, several countries later – it’s still the place I get homesick for.

  3. Know how that feels! Several months, sometimes years, but over twenty years, this place, this island, has consistently drawn me back and though I’m packed and ready to go ‘home’ settle down, still I’m here, having a difficult time letting go! 🙂

    That’s how I felt when I came to live in Montriond!!!

    Yay! I’ve missed your Sardinian posts! And it is far more likely that we might bump into each other some day!

  10. Having been here for two weeks I can see why you would have missed it. It’s a very special place! Welcome back.

  11. I miss a lot of the home comforts while away. Right now I am missing my husband who had to go back. We know next year is our last in China and he is trying to get things sorted back home so we have jobs and a place to call home when we return.

    So glad you are back in the place that makes you happiest.

    Congratulations! My soul agrees with you so! When we went to Anela, where my father was born and raised, as I got out of the car the first day there, I told my husband that I felt as if my soul came home! I love it! So happy you are back! May God Bless!
