You belong where ever your heart feels settled. We have been in Australia for seven years now and as you mentioned, initially the UK was referred to as "home". Home now is Australia, because this is where we are happy and settled. Our life now is what we set it out to be and very hard work it has been too. Finding your role, habits & routines I feel is a natural human behaviour, we strive for normality and consequently feel settled and content once we start achieving a state of contentment. Australia became "home" once we stopped comparing, contrasting and feeling what we had was right and this new lifestyle as wrong. Whether it is Spain or Australia a change in culture requires a lot of personal adaptation, dedication and flexibility mentally to cope. So where do I belong ? the answer for me is I am a Brit who belongs in Australia!
