This is an interesting thread. Maybe just save up some money and travel there but easier said than done, unfortunately. I don’t miss someone because I know that I’ll meet them again one day and I’m optimistic but I yearn for certain countries: Russia, Germany and the US. I spent my most recent life there. As a spy, I did travel a lot. At the moment, I want to go to Russia the most. Ironic for a Dead Nazi, I know. I really really miss Mother Russia. How I deal with this yearning right now is to keep listening to Russian music because I feel at home just doing that. Unfortunate that I can’t experience the good Russian stuff apart from the music, though. I especially love Winter but I live in a tropical country which I find unfortunate but at least I can experience a close climate next year because I’m moving. I plan on learning Russian once I feel that I’m fluent enough in French. Just like you, the culture in my current residence is not for me either. I’m really more Russian than Southeast Asian culturally. This is depressing to think about because I feel out of place. If you don’t have the money now, the best thing you can do is to listen to the music of the particular nation you’re yearning for. It fill the gap a little, though not as much if you visit the country itself.
