20 Ways to Overcome Homesickness When Traveling
Set Up Skype Dates
Make Skype dates with your friends and family back home. Sometimes it’s helpful to just set up routine ones (like every other week or something). Just be sure to touch base.
Go Out Often
Get your blood pumping and keep moving when the sadness creeps in. Distraction is a great way to forget about homesickness blues!
Find New Communities
For me, new communities often sprung up around church, wherever I was going. But other fun places to connect might be: The local ballroom dance club, a gamer’s guild, pubs, pools, LARP gatherings… You get the idea. Find likeminded people and get bonding!
