THE DAY I MOVED AWAY

It was 2016, I was working as a receptionist in a hotel, I used to work 24 hours a week, only Saturdays and Sundays.

I had been in a relationship for 10 years, I was happy, I loved him.

I always wanted to live abroad, I had been thinking about that for so long, very long.

It all happened very fast, 3 weeks.

A friend of mine told me about this website, families around the world use it to find someone to live in their houses and look after their kids, I always liked kids.

I created a profile and had a look at some families in the UK. My first choice: London. I had been in London a few years ago for three weeks and I fell in love with the city. I had my profile on that website for a few months, some families contacted me but I never replied.

It was summer, every day looked the same as the previous one. I needed to do something with my life, I hated my job, I didn’t have many friends, I had to make a decision.

I told my family and my boyfriend about this website, they just though I was still dreaming about moving away. Things become serious when I started to talk with some families.

Long story short, I found a family. House in Southampton, two kids, one of them with cerebral palsy, father from Northern Ireland, mother from Spain. She was from the same city as me and the whole family were spending their summer holidays there.

We met, we had a coffee, we talked. She said she had two other interviews and that she would contact me.

3 weeks. I had 3 weeks to move to England. I left my job. I told my parents, they were not happy to see me going. I told my boyfriend, he said I should do it if that is what I wanted; we were fine, planning to visit him every time I could and moving back to Spain after a year. It didn’t last long.

3 months. Less than 3 months were enough. I felt guilty, I felt stupid. Almost 11 years together and I ruined everything because I moved away. I will never know the real reason, but he said it wasn’t that, he was not happy, he didn’t love me the same way he used to. That was the end.

I don’t have a number to count the months it took me to stop feeling guilty, to stop feeling stupid, to stop feeling. But it happened.

And moving to the UK was the best decision I’ve ever made. It made me change, it made me grow and it made me happy.

THE DAY I STARTED

This is not my first blog, I don’t know if this would be the last one of is there anyone there to read it. It all started in 2008 when I was 19 and I was about to start my photography studies back in Spain.

Ten years later so many things have changed, I still love photography and I still want to work on that field, but I’m just about to start a new academic year studying something complete different. I moved to the UK from Spain two years ago and I can’t be more happy with the decision that changed my life, but that is a story for another day.

I have so many ideas for this blog so we better start…
