SUITCASE & STORIES is for life travelers, individuals who moved from their birth homes for life, love, study, work, play, adventure, and other reasons. It is a creative platform for life travelers to share their stories, to connect with each other through shared thoughts and experiences, and to build virtual and real communities of individuals going through the processes of uprooting, rooting and ultimately finding home. Whether you moved from one country to another, from one city to another, from one part of town to another; as long as you find yourself being uprooted from the familiar to the unknown, this platform is for you.
As physical and cultural boundaries continue to blur, the need to know and to understand each other become even more essential for every individual to live, work and play with each other in harmony. Through SUITCASE & STORIES, we hope to bridge the perceived differences with stories by contributors from all corners of the globe.
By creating this platform, we hope that in our own small way, we support you — the transplants, immigrants, refugees, migrants, expatriates, adventurers, or however you choose to call yourself — as we all travel this long, winding, uncertain road called LIFE on our way HOME.
These are OUR stories.
“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” – Maya Angelou
