When you relocate, and have to say goodbye to your family and friends, you really hope that you will at least receive some visitors. You look forward to the chance to show them the new country you are living in, and the different life you have built for yourself.
But how does it feel for you, the Expat, after their visit? You’re the one who stays behind when your best friend, or mum and dad leave, often returning to the place that you used to call ‘home’? Maybe you feel down? Alone? Isolated? Perhaps even abandoned? The homesickness that you thought you had overcome, returns again.
