An April 2005 trip

Quote: My trip to the town that I will call home for four years while I go to the University there
I was in England in 2003, and it felt like coming home to see stores like Marks and Spencers, W.H. Smith, Monsoon, and others. I realized that, although I love where I was born and live, Europe still feels more like home than anywhere else.
Walking through the town, I found that I loved the feeling that you knew this is 2005, but if you looked at some of the shops, you might think that you are still in the 1800s. There is still a feeling that I can't quite shake of a sense of belonging and that once you are there, the world is just waiting for you to come and reach out to it. Somehow, being in the USA, doesn’t ever give me that feeling, giving more of a feeling that everything is so far away and so terribly foreign that I won't be able to ever reach it. I hope that this little village of a place will let me reach the world.
