Do you miss home?

Most people who live outside of their home country get this question on a regular basis. “Do you miss home?” “What do you miss the most from Norway?” All very normal questions. The thing is that now I have lived outside of Norway for so long that while I still feel very Norwegian, I don’t necessarily miss Norway, the country, that much. Of course I miss my friends and my family, and there are customs and attitudes that I appreciate and miss, but as far as places, I don’t miss it that much. I miss Washington, DC, much more, which is natural because I lived there recently and for many years. I sort of actively avoid going down memory lane too much, because I do love it and I do miss it – the gorgeous fall and spring, the heat, my friends, my bike, my beautiful neighborhood of Dupont Circle… We had a good run! And I am sure I will be back at some point.
