ReBlog: German Word “Fernweh”

Thank you, Germany, for somehow looking directly into my soul and coming up with a word for exactly this point in my life.  And probably the foreseeable future.  Language is awesome.

The word describes feeling “like you have to leave your familiar surroundings to discover new places,” and there’s no English translation.  I feel like it’s me in seven letters (yes, I had to double count just to make sure).

The original post for “fernweh” is here.
