The backdrop on my phone is of London where Big Ben is. That’s not the only thing that’s making me feel really nostalgic about England. A girl in my Italian class did a presentation and showed pictures of England from her art study abroad. My leftover pounds and bills are sitting by my bedroom door. My “Mind the Gap” tee shirt. My red phonebooth keychain. Seeing pictures on Flickr (like the one above). And just memories of wandering down the short streets and absorbing everything I could while I was there…
I miss everything about that wonderful country… the food, the people, the history, the hustle and bustle of London, and the quaint country feel of Stratford-Upon-Avon, and of course the small college town of Cambridge.
I wonder what Christmas is like there. It seems so glamorized in movies like Love, Actually and the Holiday. But from what I’ve already seen of the country, it seems like those movies stick pretty true to how it is. How wonderful would it be to spend a winter in England? House swap, anybody?
I intent if not insist on going back someday. At this point, I would not mind living there. It is expensive but I loved it so much it’d be worth it.
