I’m getting to be a pro at taking trains; something I never thought I’d be doing much of. The other day I took one into Cambridge to check out a job that I really want, and was able to see some beautiful sights along the way.There are wild poppies that grow in the fields and alongside the roads but I wasn’t able to get a good photo from the train. I’ve never seen poppies growing wild in Canada; they are really beautiful.
As I was nervously following my printed directions I suddenly recognized where I was as I passed the Regal nightclub that I had gone to with my sweetie on my first trip to England and the Nando’s where we’d had lunch on the very first day I came to England a year and a half ago. I couldn’t help but feel a little sentimental thinking back to that day, reminiscing on how far we’ve come and wondering if I had any inkling then that I would be moving to this strange, beautiful, exciting new country in the not-so-distant future.
There’s also a chain store here called “Thing Me Bobs” that my dad wanted me to take a photo of and send to him, as he thought it was hilarious. I remember seeing a Thing Me Bobs on my first trip to England a year and a half ago and thinking how very British it was :). It’s become my go-to shop!
What countries have you visited? What sights were the most memorable?
