Homesickness

I was wondering if anyone here who's already made the move, has any stories, advice or experiences to share on homesickness? I'll be leaving in two months and know I'll also miss home no matter how much I like it in Australia - but I kind of want to stay ahead of any severe brooding if I can .

Anyone care to share?

SKYPE. Get beyond first 5 months and you'll be fine.

Skype will definitely help. Unfortunately, when traveling a lot homesickness can be inevitable. The best thing to do is to be in close contact with your friends from home.

Cheers,

Conrad

I've been living away from France for the past 6 years and it gets hard at times.

The best thing you can do is try and keep in touch as much as you like. Unfortunately, you will see some people won't be as adamant as you may be to keep in touch but that's the reality of things.

However, you'll be surprised by other people you may not feel as close to as others: they're the ones who are going to brighten your days

Overall, it's hard yes, but what you have to think of is the reason you left home, and it usually makes you forget about all the downsides of the move!

You'll also find you'll enjoy the time spent with your family a lot more: all the "issues" you may have had in the past will disappear and will be replaced by happiness and good times!

I left Poland in 2004 and have been in Australia for 8 years. During that time I felt home sick only one - when in 2010 I visited Poland. Whilst in Poland I missed... Australia and my Australian home.

Homesickness? No, thank you.

Not at all. I stay in touch with family and friends. But I made my own friends here and there is so much to see and to do!
I probably was getting homesick only during my first couple of months here. Now not even a bit.

6 weeks in, the first 2 weeks were hell. It gets better, but I can't say I am anywhere near getting over it.

Every morning I wake up with one thought on my mind, which airline is best to book my ticket home.

It depends on what home means to you, before I made the move if I had the chance to read this post I would probably laugh it off but the reality is a whole different story.

Try to make regular communication with your loved ones at home and try to compromise things for the first two months then you will be fine.
Keep in mind that nothing is bad in this World.
