Blog 2: London

So, Ive been in London for the past 4 months and I’ve had seriously mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, it’s great for work – there’s a constant stream of people who are up for having a massage and in general they have more disposable income than those up North which means they can partake more regularly. However, everything I know and love is back up in Manchester and in my opinion life is a lot easier back there, both financially and in terms of how people are when it comes to the way they treat you.

There have definitely been memorable times down here though. Highlights include the trip to California that I was able to go on and two visits to Amsterdam which were amazing. The day to day life isn’t all that bad down here either as I’ve been going to the gym every day and eating much better than when I was living at home in Manchester – which has helped me to get an even better physique than before!

Who knows where I’ll end up once my rent expires in July. Going back home just before my birthday seems like it would be stressful but also means that I would be able to spend it with my friends and family rather than just being alone. Northerners have a certain charm that just isn’t found in other places and I’ve been missing it greatly – maybe its time to go back home…
