Even so, after all that time spent writing it would seem a shame to leave the blog hanging unfinished in such an awkward way, and so consider this a very brief goodbye that serves only to provide the blog with a tidier ending.
All in all the trip was in fact a life changing experience, though in a way that is not as cheesy or profound as the phrase might suggest. But one thing that I've learned over the last week is that the experience was an extremely personal one, and that it seems virtually impossible to try and share it with other people. My only aim now is to make sure that that experience wasn't for nothing - that I don't slip back into my life as it was before. Unfortunately this may prove to be a difficult task as, despite the fact that I feel like I have changed a lot, the world that I have come back to appears to not have, and it feels as though it would be all too easy to see the last six months as nothing but fond memories and photos, leaving those changes to disappear into thin air. Hopefully this won't prove to be the case.
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to anyone who read even a little of the blog. At last count it had 2251 hits which, despite the probable fact that half of those were my own, was far more than I had expected at the outset.
Well that's it, a final "adios" from the grey and rainy shithole that is England.
