Hiraeth (pronounced [hiraɪ̯θ]) is a Welsh word which means ‘nostalgia’, or, more commonly, ‘homesickness’. Many Welsh people claim ‘hiraeth‘ is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely “missing something” or “missing home.”
I ran across this word in one of my sojourns through the dictionary. Yes, I thumb, actually scroll, through a dictionary from time to time. It kinda describes how I feel about our Navy, the ships homeported in Asian ports, and the ports we called in. Just some of the things that come to mind.
