I can’t even begin to say how much I cannot look forward to leaving England. It is so similar, yet so different. I think it is the possibility of exploring a city, or another country – all within my fingertips; it is that which I will miss the most.
These past few weeks were very, very, very busy with studying. Catching up on the 3 months of coursework material I had only occasionally glanced at within my travels. Though I am glad for the day trip out to Oxford last week.
As I walked along the streets, within the numerous colleges – I was stunned. Awed and revelling in the beauty of this city. The architecture, the people, and most of all: the atmosphere of it all drew me in for the day; it still has not let me go since.
I hope I will be able to come back to England one day. Not as a student, nor as an employee of a company. But that of a wanderer that is not lost, but merely looking to exist in the many cities that litter this beautiful country, that which I currently call home.
If I were to become an inhabitant of this city, would I be content?
