Mezei in the UK

at the airport :)

Here we are! All in England!! They came, they saw, they loved it!! They’ll be back :)!

Chris and his parents were here last month to breathe in the air I breathe. We had a great time together and it was very nice to see them go through the same first reactions that I had when I first set foot on English land :P. We had soooooo many friends helping us from accommodation,  home cooked english meals to rides up and down Kent. Thank you Suzzete, Michael, Tony, Jen, Dave and Cyra, Esther and Ken, Trish and Les and everyone at church who made them feel like home!

This visit also was so good for me because it broke down in half the 6 months being away from home. Now Christmas, when I go back to Romania, seems very close.

My mission for the visit: to get them to taste England and think of  it as a possible future home. I think I kind of succeeded in doing that :).

P.S. Mezei is their surname.

A few pictures from the thousand that we took:

It was great to spend some time with Chris and show him around. It all makes sense for him when I tell him about my day, now that he has seen all these places.

Christ Church Uni

Leeds Castle  – yep, I take everyone there!

Canterbury Cathedral

Whitstable

London!

Canterbury – fish and chips! They loved it!

22. Nice and round number. I don’t feel like 22, or I don’t want to. My face doesn’t say I’m 22… I feel strange as usual when it comes to my birthday. I’m not the kind of person who likes to be celebrated, or to be in the center of the attention. I’ve always been bad at this. And I don’t remember a birthday that I felt comfortable enough to really enjoy what was happening around me. I’m not saying that I’m not happy with the ones I love around but I think it would be much nicer to treat me as usual. Birthdays are emotional enough for me as they are… So here I am again, a year older, feeling like I want to cry my heart out…and I have no idea why! One thing certainly helped this year: trying to put the others in the spotlight. Like my parents who are the real stars for me being here, and I let them know that. And of course God who has my life into His palm and sent me on earth for a good reason. They should be the ones to be celebrated.

P. S. Thanks to Cristina and Georgiana who brought a little of my family today.

I tried not to act like a 22 year old. The red bow was the perfect disguise.  And then came the bubbles 😀
