There are so many people across the globe that have no other option but to migrate to another country. Though some people only migrate because of work and education opportunities, some are forced to do so because of more serious problems such as war and discrimination. But no matter what the reason for immigration may be, one truth about migrating is that there are still some things that the immigrants would miss from their countries. Here are some of these things that would make the immigrants feel like going back home:
1. Family and friends
They say, “No man is an island”. People who stay in a community, especially when it’s for a long period of time, tend to be associated and attached to other individuals aside from their families. They build friendships and most of the time healthy relationships that are hard to give up when migrating. This therefore makes the immigrant miss not only his family, but even those people who have been part of his life.
It is a great experience to see cultures of different countries when travelling, but this is hard when you are an immigrant and you need to adapt to an environment that is much different from where you lived before. There are certain cultures that an immigrant may find inadequate to what he believes which would make him miss his way of living before.
Different countries have different cuisines or specific set of cooking traditions and practices, often associated with a specific culture. It is primarily influenced by the ingredients that are available locally or through trade while some religious food laws can also exercise a strong influence on cuisine. This would then be difficult for people moving from a different continent to adjust on their eating traditions. For example, it would be hard for Asians to appreciate British food as the two cuisines are very different from each other.
It may not always be easy to adjust in moving from one place to another. Good thing there are now a number of ways to enjoy migrating to another country and still not miss so much of what we have left. Modern technology has now enabled us to call and visit family and friends much faster or have our favorite food delivered right on our doorway. Even if you’re in the US, you can now find a British food deliverer to your area. Thanks to the modern technology as we start a new life in a new welcoming community.
