I found that after 3 and a half years living outside the UK, I never felt 100% 'at home' again. There was a huge sense of relief to be back on familiar territory but you see things with an outsider's perspective and realise that you've missed out on lots of national events and news stories.
God I totally understand this. We travelled round the world for only 10 months ( 6 months in Aus) and yet after nearly 3 years back 'home' I always feel like I am an outsider viewing life in Britain but dont really feel part of it anymore. One of my Australian friends when I told them we got the visa said Welcome Home and thats really how I see it. Cant wait to get back!!!
