If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it? Do you need a home base? What makes a place “home” to you?
The only way that I would ever opt for a nomadic life is if I had tons of money. See the thing I hate most about traveling, especially in India, is trains. I hate the trains we have and I can never get enough sleep while in them and I hate having to go to the toilet in them. I just do. Also I do not like waiting for hours at bus stops and train stations, that is jut terrible. Ideally I would live the nomadic life only if I had easy access to comfortable travel. Planes, trains, cars, buses, mini-vans, ships – whichever means of travel I have to take, it had better be comfortable.
But I need a home base for safety, security & a center. I think most people do need that. When all the travel for the time being is done, you need to come back to a place that is safe, familiar, comfortable and relaxing. Call that home. It can also be a few places instead of just one place but again, you would need a load of cash for creating a few homes around the globe. But I would need that place or places to come back to. Where you can put your feet up, relax in your jammies and shut the door on the craziness of the outside world.
That’s what makes “home” for me. It’s where your stuff is and where you can be yourself.
