Went back to Canterbury this week to officially move out. Re-experiencing Kent with my family was the best send-off imaginable. Finally went to Whitstable, a lovely little coastal town to the north from Canterbury, but otherwise stayed in the cathedral city. We did so much there in just a few days. Went to evensong at the cathedral with the boys' choir (I'm not one bit religious but it was amazing!), ate pub lunches, tried Japanese curry (which was delicious, by the way), visited the Roman museum and saw actual Roman marble floors that were discovered by the bombings during the war and which the museum was built upon (SO COOL), ate at the best Italian restaurant Pinocchio's (this was my fourth time there...), and of course shopped a lot. Primark will be missed. And on top of this we cleaned out my room and packed all my stuff and ofc stopped at a billion pubs while taking walks through town.
I still have two assessments left to do so school isn't over, but I have now truly moved back to Sweden. It's weird but still feels good. I love Canterbury and I am so happy I got to know the city which now feels like my home, but I also had a hard time there all alone. So it's nice being home with family, but it's also sad not seeing the cathedral towers every day or walking the high street on the way to the Pound Store or checking what's new at Primark. Or just going to the bus station to go on a Kentish adventure. But never mind. I'll be back. My family already has Canterbury plans for the summer and the winter. So I won't be missing it for too long.
See you soon, Cbury.
