Spending the holidays in your home country as an expat

I'm starting my second week of holidays in France and I don't think people realize what they are really like.
  1. How my American colleagues think I'm spending my holidays
    Dunno... Doing glamorous things probably
  2. How my family and friends think I'm spending my holidays
    Constantly going from one person to another and never staying long enough in one place
  3. How I think I'm spending my holidays
    An emotional roller coaster, too many nights on bad couches but hell if I'd like to change a thing!
