When meeting new people, I dread the question “where are you from”. If only I had a simple answer! Do they mean where was I born? Where did I grow up? Where have I travelled from most recently?
But “where is home”? Well, that is actually a really easy question to answer. Considering my slightly nomadic life and up bringing, it would be very easy for me to be confused as to where ‘home’ is. Whilst I have a Canadian passport and actively support Ireland in rugby matches, own a flat in London and am just about to move from Kenya to Jordan, I know where ‘home’ is.
To me, home is where you feel safe, where you long to go and never want to leave, where you can completely relax and rest. It’s full of memories.
And for me it this little corner of Scotland.
