Fernweh: a desire to travel, a longing for far-off places

To me there is no better word to describe my wanderlust. May be related to having always lived on an island—Cuba, Puerto Rico and now Manhattan—that gives me a longing to break out of an insular world. Or maybe a gypsy was my real father. I’m not sure. Whatever the reason, I don’t want a cure.

Come, share my fernweh.
