Fernweh

 

Fernweh (n.)

An ache for distant places.

A craving to travel.

There is no direct translation for this German word “fernweh”. It basically means the opposite of homesickness, a feeing that you have to leave your familiar surroundings and discover new places; the need for distance or the wish to experience something far away from home. The urge to escape from your everyday life by travelling.

Mexico. Japan. Mongolia. Whitby
