Hiraeth is a longing for one's homeland, but it's not mere homesickness. It's an expression of the bond one feels with one's home country when one is away from it.
As soon as I step over the border into Wales my hiraeth evaporates. I am home.

a longing for a home you can't return to, or one that was never yours. not necessarily a house, but a homely feeling such as love.
