Fernweh is a German word, with no real English equivalent, which could be translated as “the sickness missing distant countries”.
Unlike the French term “mal du pays”, Fernweh defines an irrepressible call to distant places: it is such a desire to travel that it can potentially affect the morale, the autonomy and the very life of a person.
This piece therefore wants to express this dream, both strong and prevented, of going far away, of living something else, somewhere else – but never being able to do it.
