Where is home?

“When I am at home, I’m always thinking of going abroad”

“To me, the green Uppsala buses mean home”

“The most important things in my home are all my electronics”

When you are moving every 4 months, what is home? When you are away from your culture, what is home? When the people you mingle with are all expatriates, what is home? Or in other words: When you are a Euroculturer, what is home?

We wanted to know and set out on a tour in three homes of Euroculturers. We saw how they lived, what home means to them and what their dream homes would be.

Come along and meet Radostina, George and Jorick in their homes!

What is home to you? Is it nicer to be at home or somewhere else? Were you ever close to homelessness when moving to a new Euroculture city? Who can feel at home in Europe?

We’d love to hear about your views on home, check out the commentary field here and on Facebook!

Helen was part of the Euroculturer Cohort 2011-2013 and studied Euroculture in the University of Göttingen (DE) and Uppsala University (SW) where she was sufficiently “swedified” to today serve as the Country Manager of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Germany. Her interests are film, literature, the Eurovision Song Contest (and not ashamed to admit it), and everything printed – even TV magazines. She’s also fascinated with communication, marketing and commercials. And of course, her interests include the Swedish Royal Family.
