Friends and Family

An important part of my sabbatical in the UK has been about spending time with friends and family. This has been a major factor in planning my route and has made the journey so special.

I have been privaledged to be part of some important life events including going to a friends hen do at Longleat, seeing my cousins new baby and visiting another cousins new house. It’s amazing how much is happening in people’s lives and how easy it is to miss things.Black Horse pub with a Black Horse

Sharing in the everyday adventures of life have also been great. Watching my friends children play football, helping move wood for the winter, collecting blackberries, visiting where a friend works and eating meals together. These are all memories  to treasure. I’ve sampled haggis in Scotland, homemade sticky chicken, sushi, roasts, vegan milkshake and an amazing Indian curry experience in at the Feast India in Leicester – the home of the British curry. The kindness and great hospitality I have been shown has really blown me away.

“Thank you” is not a big enough word.
