I have left pieces of myself in many different places all over the world and I'm sure I will continue doing so as I have many places still to check off my bucket list. The UK will always be one of the few places that truly feels like home. It has been over four years since my last visit, way to long. The longing for this amazing country has always been there and it finally became so strong that I promised myself regardless of whatever happened this year I was making the trip.
The moment I spot the fog drenched landscape around Gatwick airport and the lady at the customs booth welcomes me to this beautiful country, I know once again that I have made it home. The feeling that washes over me is indescribable. Giddy with excitement I can't wait to show Jason where I grew up, family and friends that I have longed to hug, and of course eat endless amounts of fish and chips.
We have three and a half weeks to explore and I intend to make the most of each and every moment. We chose to arrive with nothing planned other then the people we would be catching up with. Of course I have a long list of places that I would love to see but I prefer to just go with the flow and see where it takes me. I have always travelled this way and I find it is what suits me best.
Do you plan out your travels before you leave or do you like to explore day to day?
