21.05.14 – The colourful houses in Notting Hill, London

At the beginning of last month I returned to my family home in rainy Wales. It’d been the longest I’d ever been away from my immediate family, without visiting. I can’t deny that the significant distance between here and Vancouver factored into my return. But now I’m restless. Being in a place I’m so familiar with, has taken away my curiosity. When I visit new places, I want to walk about everywhere (which is in constant battle with my natural nature of “couch potato”). I’d like to regain that feeling of wonder for my environment, so I’ve decided that starting next month – I will try and get out of the house and explore. I also hope it will rekindle my interest for sharing the daily grind on here, as I’ve been terribly inattentive for a while.
