Wednesday Word: Fernweh

Fernweh - noun, German.

Today's word was suggested by archersangel and set me about trying to find the most fernweh image possible. Fernweh is a German word that means wanderlust or farsickness--the kind of opposite of homesickness. Fernweh can have you longing for places you have not yet been too. We all may be feeling a little fernweh these days--I would love a vacation personally.
