Manchmal habe ich das Gefühl, dass mich nichts hier hält. Weder Familie, weder Freunde oder ähnliches. Ich wünschte, ich könnte meine sieben Sachen packen und abhauen. Andere haben Heimweh, ich habe Fernweh.
“ fernweh : who am i that i ache for places i have never seen ? who yearns for destinations i have never known . that wanderlust plagues me and carries part of my spirit in it’s outstretched hand . she who dreams of places yet unseen , of moments not yet occurring , of feelings long since felt . she who feels homesickness for distant adventures . a far - sickness that gnaws on the core of who she is . she has a need to find the place , the time , the where that she is meant to be . fernweh is stamped upon her soul .
Das Fernweh = a more modern version of the old “Wanderlust”. Fern = far away, remote. Weh = longing. A distinct longing to travel, go away for a while, to see the world, to go places that are far away and different. The opposite of this is das Heimweh - homesickness, longing for home. .
