July 15th. The time has come for me to say goodbye, firstly to Belfast and secondly to living in the UK in general.
Feels both like it was yesterday and like it was in another life, when as a naive 19-years-old I arrived at the Plymouth railway station and began my UK adventure...And now, 8 years later I am ready to close this chapter to start the next adventure in Dutch-speaking lands...
I am going to keep this post positive and, instead of compiling a list of things I am definitely not gonna miss or I struggled with, I will compile one of those I will miss instead
Of course I am also gonna miss all friends and people I have met on my journey, however technology is so advanced nowadays that I am sure we will keep in touch and we can visit each other so I won't get too sentimental!
And just to leave you all with a great quote from an even better book:
'What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies'.
