So with my flight home and my return to reality drawing ever closer I thought I would reflect on some things I miss about England rather than dwelling too much on how my big adventure is finally over.....  So here's what I miss!

  •  My family (especially my little sister Sophie) and all my friends
  •  My comfortable bed ( the mattresses in Sri Lanka don't have springs and have given me an awful back!)
  •  Sleeping all snuggled up in a duvet
  •  Clothes that are actually clean rather than the half arsed attempts made when you hand it into the guesthouses
  •  Salt and Vinegar crisps, I haven't been able to find any since South Africa and the green Walkers in Asia are seaweed instead of salt and vinegar, what where they thinking?!
  •  Fish and chips from a proper English chippie
  •  My wardrobe and all my clothes
  •  My music and DVD collection
  •  The relatively efficient transport system which has a proper timetable rather than turn up and hope
  •  Cooking my own food
  •  Cereal especially the mini weetabix with chocolate chips and Kellogs Crunchy Nut
  •  A good shower, not like the dribbly cold things in Sri Lanka 
  •  The gym, running and kayaking
  •  Being cold rather than hot and sweaty all the time
  •  Watching my bank account get fatter rather than constantly chopping my daily budget as my money dwindles
  •  Spending more than 4 nights in the same place
  •  Pubs and house parties
