Way north. As in hemisphere.
This is my first trip to Europe in over half my life. I don't know how so much time has passed, before I find myself flying back to the part of the world that I called home for 18 months in my early 20s. I was my best self there. As you often are, living somewhere without a past. An Antipodean abroad can never be too loud, out there or too much fun.
I don't expect to run into my former self but with a bit of luck the change of scene will help me slip into another gear and bring that part of me a little closer.
Though, hopefully, a tad quieter this time.
