London, you pulled me back in with your stuffy commutes, great coffee shops, good work and a fast paced lifestyle.
I left you once and I’m leaving you again.
For now — we just can’t be together. It’s not you. Don’t ever think it’s you. Sure, nowhere is without it’s flaws but your bustling ambience shone over all of that.
Truly, it’s not you. It’s me.
I need to see more, do more, be more. One day, who knows? Maybe we’ll see each other again. Maybe we’ll have what we had before or maybe we’ll just be friends. Of course I’ll miss you. I’ll definitely think about you often and all the great times we’ve had. We’ll always have Belsize. Remember that? We were perfect together but right now I need to spread my wings.
I have something else to tell you.
You’re not going to like this but I have to be honest with you. You deserve to know.
I’m… I’m seeing other countries.
Not at the same time, never at the same time. I’m not like that — but after you there will be Thailand. Sure she’s beautiful, but I doubt she’ll have your personality.
And, well… There’s more. It’s not just Thailand. There will be Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. A lot of the USA.
I know how this sounds. Please remember how much you mean to me. You were my first and no one can take that away from us.
I love you. I’ll miss you.
