It would be easy to conclude that I have little affection for the UK, and it’s true that, even if we weren’t moving to Australia, we probably still wouldn’t move back. But a few final trips home before we move to Canberra have helped me to see my home country in a marginally new light.
I’ve been in London this weekend, and my trip reminded me of the closeness of many of the things that connect me to the past. Things that will be a world away once we make our move to Canberra next month.
After 10 years in Denmark, our decision to move to Australia has some of its roots in wanting to feel closer to the place where we live – culturally, linguistically, socially and professionally. So the obvious question is: why not move back to the UK? After all, it still offers many of the things that are on our list of ‘things to look forward to’.
