I have to empathise with the OP. I'm an Australian national of asian descent who's moved about through the Asia-pacific area for the past few years of my life, ending up here in the UK for uni. I really have no sense of home, wherever I go back to seems to be just as cold and uninviting as anywhere else. The exception is that I actually like it here (so far) - unfortunately you guys are so tied up with immigration that it's going to take me a decade to get any semblance of citizenship/residence .
So if employment falls through here, and the graduate work visa expires, I'm at a loss where I should be.

you should go travelling and see where your routes are and were you like and feel at home, you will probably need to spend quite a while in one place to see if you can live there but you should know after a few weeks whether you definately like or dislike a place..

I can't believe all the horrible replies the OP got. Don't listen to them.
I do get what you feel, Im not in exactly the same situation but I don't feel like I belong here either, yet I don't belong where either of my parents are from.
Since I was about 11 I thought how I really want to live in a different country when I can but the same thing would just happen.
I think you just have to try and make your surroundings home, try and fit yourself in and find things you like and stuff.
I hope you find somewhere you like
