Viewing the UK through the eyes of a tourist
by Helen McClure - 5 years, 11 months ago
It’s strange to return to the UK after a year’s absence. This is our longest stretch without our feet in a rain puddle.
But this July, things are different. It’s a beautiful summer’s day and I’m sitting in a coffee shop in London. That’s right. I’ve chosen to sit inside. Despite living in one of the hottest places on the planet, where temperatures in Dubai are 48C, the UK is enjoying it’s own little heat wave and it’s actually too hot to sit in the sun. It’s fantastic.
Returning to the UK this time, with the distance of 12 months since our last visit, has meant that I’m able to view life almost as a tourist. I don’t want to feel like a stranger in my home country but it’s refreshing to see things from a different angle, viewing warts and all.
