Daily Prompt: There’s No Place Like Home

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?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MOVING.

At times I feel that travel is a bit like entertaining a guest – you can do it for so long but then you need a break! In as much as I do love travelling, experience has shown me that I need a base to go back to. A base gives me comfort, familiarity, family and friends.

I couldn’t lead a nomadic life – I’d feel like a rolling stone!

Every time we come back from a trip, the words to this song sums it up for me. If you don’t know it, (and even if you do) click on the link and listen as Hugh Jackman, Olivia Newton-John, Keith Urban, Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman sing I Still Call Australia Home at the Sydney Opera House featuring Oprah

I Still Call Australia Home
Songwriters: Peter Woolnough Allen

I’ve been to cities that never close down
From New York to Rio and old London town
But no matter how far or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home

I’m always traveling, I love being free
And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea
But my heart lies waiting over the foam
I still call Australia home

All the sons and daughters spinning ’round the world
Away from their family and friends
But as the world gets older and colder
It’s good to know where your journey ends

And someday we’ll all be together once more
When all of the ships come back to the shore
I’ll realize something I’ve always known
I still call Australia home

But no matter how far or wide I roam
I still call Australia, I still call Australia, I still call Australia home
But no matter how far or wide I roam
I still call Australia, I still call Australia, I still call Australia home.

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
