Abbey Road and the Beatles. The two names are synonymous with one another. Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to go to Abbey Road and see where they made the record called, aptly, Abbey Road. I also wanted to see what I call ‘The Beatles’ Crossing’.
Being an expat is fun and it will not be easy to go back to my home country in a few months.
You see, being an expat is dangerous. At first, it is scary and all you want to do is go home, but soon enough you get over that homesickness and start enjoying your time overseas.
This weekend I did something incredibly touristy. I decided to do a London City Walk, which took us all around Southwark and showed some rather interesting landmarks on the way. A lot of the things the guide showed us, I never knew!
I love finding little treasures when I travel. Some of my favourite things are very unique to certain countries and some I have found at little markets. It’s funny how these little things remind me of holidays or weekend breaks.
Wow, the last few weeks have flown by. It feels like yesterday that my mum and dad flew in. I can’t believe it is their last day here tomorrow as we fly out in the evening to go back to NZ. I am going home for about a month as my sister is getting married.
On Tuesday we were shown around Cambridge by one of my brother’s friends.
We spent quite some time at the Fitzwilliam before moving on and walking around Universities. The Universities are so grand in Cambridge, it kind of makes me want to go back to Uni here now.
My parents have come to visit me for Christmas and since some of my mum’s family came from Hockwold before they moved to NZ, we decided to spend Christmas in Hockwold.
