My homesickness has this tendency to hit me when I least expect it. I'm going back home to Oman in 2 weeks so I'm in the final stretch. I haven't seen any of my family since July, I live in the UK on my own - my extended family all live in Germany and my parents live abroad so it's just little old me here. I crave the sun and warmth after these miserable winter months. It's hard for me getting used to wet weather and the fact that the sun sets at 4:15 in the afternoon here. I grew up in Oman so it's always hard for me to be apart from it for a long time. I can't wait for that sense of relief when I step off the plane in 2 weeks.
