There's something about Sitka, Alaska that will always feel like home to me. It was my home for over a decade, but I haven't had the chance to travel back since 2008. I'm sure if I were to fly there today, I would get that same "home" feeling just by watching out the windows as the plane landed and seeing the O'Connell bridge or Mt. Edgecombe in the distance.
You should go there sometime. See what you feel.
