Is it possible to be homesick for a place where you spent only two months?

My heart aches for England. It has haunted my dreams and followed me in the books I've been reading and songs I have heard (a few days ago the song "London Calling" came on while I was going to work). I have been watching BBC TV shows/miniseries. My brain has been thinking of all the things I would like to see if I ever get to go back. I miss ancient buildings. I miss . . . it's hard to describe what I miss. All I know is that I would go back at any opportunity.

Because it has been on my mind, here is my list:

In London
Hatchard's bookshop, est. 1797
Kensington Palace
Doctor Who Experience (yes, I am an unashamed fangirl)
Hampstead Heath
St. Paul's Cathedral
Great Ormond Street Hospital

Outside London
Chawton House/Cottage
Lake District

There's more, including things I've already see and places I've already been to that I would like to see again, but these are specifics. I would love to just be able to walk along the Thames at night again. Hopefully I'll be able to go back again (and again and again)!


  1. Yes it is. I want to go back SO MUCH!!! I always tell Erik that he has to pick a plane that is based in England so that we can live there.. Hopefully it works! And if we DO get to move over there, you will have to come visit! After all, you would have a place to stay!
