Ten years ago I moved to Spain with my parents. Ever since then I have only gone back to the UK twice! The last time I visited it was Christmas 2006 and I was 12. That's a really long time to go without seeing my family. But...that's all about to change this year.
In my New Year's Resolution post I talked about wanting to get out of my comfort zone and push the all the boundaries. So a few weeks ago I decided to book a flight and head back to my home country for a small vacation. The scary thing is, I'm going all on my own.
Now you'd think a 20 year old travelling alone is a common thing. It is, as there are many people my age who explore amazing places on their gap year or whenever. Me, I'm a little nervous.
I've been to places like New York and Madrid, and even though I wasn't with my parents I was still with a group of friends from college.
The thing that scares me most is flying. I don't mind when the plane is up in the air. It's the take off that I hate and start to panic. Another thing that worries me is the culture difference.
I've lived in Spain since I was 10 and I live in a very sleepy village. During that time I've gotten used to a slower way of life, and the way people are. When I go back to England its not going to be the same.
One of the reasons I'm doing this is to prove to myself that I can do lots of different things on my own.
Although I love my parents dearly, I'm at an age where I want more independence. Having independence or more of it opens up new opportunities as well as giving more experience in life.
I'm really looking forward to my trip in May. I can't wait to see family and I'm looking forward to going back to my hometown and letting all the memories floe back. I hope to spend a day in London and see the famous sites again.
I also hope to buy lots of beauty products and clothes so that I can write reviews and my thoughts on those products. As I know this blog is lacking in beauty and fashion reviews. I of course will write a post on what I got up to and will upload some photos of where I went.
