Is home a sense of place or a feeling? I was born in Warsaw, Poland, but spent most of my life in the United States. I recently felt this longing toward returning to Poland, chasing ghosts, connecting to friends and family, the food, the lifestyle. Grateful to spend a few weeks this summer visiting the Motherland with my family. Mostly spent time in Warsaw and the lake in Rajgród. Both places have a strong connection with my childhood and my parents and grandparents. Here’s some highlights.
There’s a name for me, it’s called a third culture kid. I live in California, but I’m Polish. However when I return to Poland, I feel very American. I am realizing that home somewhere in between and inside myself.
