"When you live abroad, you realize that, no matter where you are, youwill always be an ex-pat. There will always be a part of you that is far awayfrom its home and is lying dormant until it can breathe and live in full colorback in the country where it belongs. To live in a new place is a beautiful,thrilling thing, and it can show you that you can be whoever you want — on your own terms. It can give you the gift of freedom, of new beginnings, of curiosityand excitement. But to start over, to get on that plane, doesn’t come without aprice. You cannot be in two places at once, and from now on, you will alwayslay awake on certain nights and think of all the things you’re missing out onback home."
