Morriña means homesickness in Spanish which actually comes from the Galician language. I always hear Galician emigrants talking about Morriña, their ties to their stunning, mystical homeland, culture and particularly the ocean runs deep in their veins. I learned this beautiful word from one of my best friends that I studied fashion design with here in Madrid, she would often show up for class sad saying she needed to see the sea, I loved her passion for her homeland. I related perfectly to her homesickness as I have suffered from it from the age of 11 when I left our family property in Outback Queensland to go to boarding school. All these years later, even after selling our family property, I still get stung with homesickness for those infinite Outback horizons, it shows that my once inland sea homeland runs in my veins too.
