Adéu for now

Well my two years have come to an end and I have decided to return to Bristol. People keep asking me why. And I don't completely understand why myself. I love living in Spain. I feel very 'at home' here and yet I will always be a foreigner. But I love conquering all the obstacles presented by being a foreigner. I love it when I realize I have moved up a level in the language, or when I have assimilated a local custom and adopted it as my own. But I have unfinished business in Bristol. I have ghosts to exorcise, dragons to slay. Then I will return stronger and in peace to start the next chapter.
In the mean time follow me on Ant's in Bristol.


  1. Good luck!

    I think that once you've been here a few more years, you start to feel more 'from' here. I'm from Devon but I've been here since I was 21, nearly 10 years ago. It's really only in the last couple of years that I've started to feel like this is my country too... quite a long process.

    Anyway, again: good luck!

  2. Thanks Tom. What do you do for a living?
