Ode to Great Britain

While visiting friends and family in the lovely country of France recently, I was left sad and melancholic. The images flying past the window of my train seemed flat and grey.

My eyes were searching for lush rolling hills covered in stone walls. My heart was aching for country lanes hugged by untidy shrubs. My spirit was yearning for charming villages, rugged coasts and herds of sheep. I was craving scenery that would sooth my nerves and comfort my soul.

I was longing for Great Britain. I was longing for home.

Having lived in many countries, I am often asked why I always come back to Great Britain and why I am so sure I want to settle there. The answer is quite simple:

My soul belongs to this fascinating and striking land.

My heart beats for its arresting sceneries. My blood calls for its country lanes, wild seas and picturesque villages. My soul sings for its rugged cliffs, quaint pubs and bountiful hills. My eyes sparkle for its verdant fields, breathtaking architecture and paradise beaches.

No other land compares. No other soil suffices. No other realm soothes my restless soul.
