Home Sweet Home

I was so thrilled when I found that the volunteer house I was going to stay in has a cozy living room like this – plush pillows and carpets on the floor, typical of how Arabic people like to furnish their homes. This is how I want my home to be. I think it’s so much more comfortable, and when you invite people to sit with you – this is the way to really sit. Maybe my friends in the Western reality will think it’s ridiculous and awkward, but I think the opposite! I love sitting with people like this, you feel closer to people and you feel less awkward, because you’re both sitting in the same place and in the same way – you can put useless formalities aside and talk as friends, and not mere acquaintances.

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others.
