The world is mostly safe
I have never been mugged. And this is not for lack of trying! From Prague, Budapest to Bejing, I have walked alone at night in “dangerous” cities such as these and have not so much as been glared at.

I’m currently at my friend’s place outside of Budapest, Hungary.  It’s the seventh time I’ve visited, and I know her family and friends so well I feel like I’m part of their lives. But familiar faces are not a prerequisite for feeling fulfilled or content! The key to overcoming feelings of longing and even nostalgia is finding the things that bring you joy in life in your new surroundings, and getting over the fact that the faces and street plans are different.
