In my last post I wrote about my confusion on whether my husband and I should live in the city or in the countryside. It is now almost a year that we have been back in the UK and living in the city. As much as I would like to live in the country, I have come to terms now that I am more of a city girl compared to a country girl. I believe that I could live in the countryside, as I love nature and the animals that I might have when living in the country.
However living in the city should not be or actually is not bad at all.
I may not be close to country life, farms or farm animals the same way as when we were house sitting in Ross, but where I live is equally wonderful, as I live on the waterfront of Bristol Floating Harbour, where I can just walk out of my apartment, and there I am looking at boats as well as its wild life, and within 5 minutes walk I am in the middle of all city activities, where in Summer weekends there is always something happening; from a weekly local market to special events like Bristol Harbour Festival or Bristol Pride or Bristol Food Festival and other festivals that I could never imagine before.
Culture is also on our door step where I can go to the theater, either to watch a musical or a proper play where celebrities as big as Oscar winning actor Jeremy Irons performed at the Bristol Old Vic Theater.
And these are what I love most…. just on my door step… the local wildlife.
The beauty of all those things are it all happening in our ‘front door’; we don’t have to drive and park to be part of those activities; we just have to walk out of our flat door to see all of them….
The truth is I am overwhelmed with all the ‘city culture’ which is there one after another; besides if I write them all one by one my blog will become a news report instead of personal blog… or should I write this blog as a news report from Bristol?
