My Travel Story

Ever since I was a child I have dreamed of England. British history was the only time anyone could get me to actually pay attention in history class. I've always been enchanted about where we originated as a country and the British culture. I've been to England before and from the very first time I went I completely fell in love with it. It was then that I knew for sure that I wanted to live there. I've researched exactly what I would need to do to immigrate, how my Nursing degree will transfer, which practicing license exams I need to take, how much it will cost to live there, etc. Everything is in motion to make the move, 2-3 years from now. Until then I'm here. I didn't realize the total grasp England had on my heart until I came home. Ever since I've been home I've been incredibly depressed. I found myself, reconnected with my soul while I was in England and I never wanted to leave. If you know anything about the South, you know it doesn't snow much here, especially around Christmas. I never ask for anything during Christmas, there's not much I've ever wanted. The only thing I want this year is to go back to England during this time. I've spoke with the friends and family I have there and I know I have somewhere to stay. The only thing I'm missing right now is the funds to get there. I've been working hard to save money, work extra, sell things I no longer need, but I know I'm still going to come up short. Since I'm in college money is always tight and my schedule is even tighter. Christmas is the only time I will have break long enough to go until next summer. So this Christmas I'm asking if you can give anything to help get me to England I will forever be grateful.
