Today’s post is about a little thing that’s been bugging me for a while….am I born to live in the city, or am I really a country boy at heart?
This weekend I went away to the Cotswold’s and after initially thinking I would get bored, I completely fell in love with it. Swimming in the lake, kayaking, relaxing on the decking, being outside. It bought back all the reasons why I love having Sicilian origins and why I still love visiting Sicily. It’s a completely different pace of life where it’s about enjoying where you are right now and not worrying too much about tomorrow.
Not to mention exploring and enjoying great food, great company and much less rigidity about time keeping or being somewhere on time.
There’s always been a mini war that goes on inside me since I first explored Sicily. The ability to grow and pick your own fruits, to get by with whatever you have in the house, just appeals to me so much. I loved watching Jimmy’s Farm and River Cottage and the desire has always been there to escape the city and live in the countryside.
The Cotswold’s experience has now bought that dream back to the forefront of my mind and I’m wondering, am I a country boy in a city boy life?
So my question to you today is have you ever had a similar experience? Where you’ve been somewhere, fallen in love with it and it’s made you want to make the move? Tell me your story and help me decide if it’s something I should do!!
Ciao for now x
