Fifteen Stories to Home track the stages people often go through when living abroad. Starting with the high of leaving, the first cracks in that high, the disillusionment with life abroad, and then the appreciation of life there, that is deeper than the rush of travel, and everything else a person feels during the emotional cycle of living abroad and then coming back home.
Coming back home is not the same as never leaving. Experiencing life abroad is not just about reaching your destination. It is about the journey itself. It is about pushing your limits beyond your comfort zone. It is about learning. It is about finding yourself. Or as Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Much of it you will find in the Fifteen Stories to Home.
