    Good for you and well done in giving it a second go, as you say we are all different for some it is home (UK) for some it is not, I respect and see both points of view Great.....any chance of having a word with my wife lol one final question AliQ if I may ask, do you have any children?

    Scratching your homesickness itch

    Funny I am exactly the same (are you in Perth just curious), Probably going to get a bit of stick for this but, I only follow British news and politics and have never been able to find an interest in the Australian equivalents, even the adverts for Australian current affairs and news channels (which get more and more Americanised every day) leave me yawning, they are made out to sound like they have something really important to tell you, but when you get down to it they are extremely dull (sorry just my opinion)..... I am going home for the first time in 8 years! (did I tell you ) this December (on my own) I am really looking forward to it, hopefully, next time I go I can afford to take my children and wife

    Hi Bunbury 61, I hope you are well, I totally agree I used to love visiting London...but equally loved going home to the familiarity of north wales, I think that's what made it feel more like an adventure than anything....visiting the big smoke

    I used to love visiting London, my most favourite city on the planet, I am from a small Welsh town, and going to London was a big day out when I was younger, there is a special feeling in the city that I have never had elsewhere it is hard to put your finger on it.... love the place

    Scratching your homesickness itch

    I work in a busy emergency dept zack and I see what getting sick and being elderly means on a regular basis...... I would give words of advice on this, but then this would be futile as you know what you need to do and where you need to be...just don't leave it too long ..good luck ps I will be going home myself one day .....hopefully sooner rather than later ...take care

    Scratching your homesickness itch

    Just curious what you all do to help with those times when you get a little homesick (if at all) ........me I love watching escape to the country and have pretty much exhausted all Britain and British life documentaries from the brilliant BBC Coast programme through to Canal walks with Julia Bradbury lol , any suggestions on something else worth watching most welcomed

    Hi, Hellodearest love, I just thought I would write to say that you are not alone and there are many like us in this 'limbo' this forum is littered with 'us homesick types', I am the opposite way round to your situation in that my wife loves it here and I, unfortunately, do not and am homesick regularly. I hope you get to where you need to be and that the road is not too bumpy, (I love Scotland by the way ) anyhow just here to offer moral support you are not on your own Take care and good luck
  15. Hi Quoll thankyou , I am doing Cardiff and St Davids as well...I also love Pembrokeshire, I like the idea of a 'sanity hit', hopefully once I qualify I will have more funds and I can go home more often , I should have clarified I am doing the whole of the Welsh coastal route but by car haha I am not fit or brave enough to do it on foot in winter (although maybe stupid enough) hopefully I can start to get my spark back at Christmas time...best Christmas for a long time, tell your hubby to start taking welsh lesson he will be singing 'land of my fathers' before you know it
