Two weeks back home in the UK. A return like that makes one realise the things missed. The weather, mostly. Tropical weather doesn't really agree with me. And seasons. It's easy to miss seasons in a country that doesn't seem to have them. It was nice to catch signs of spring - bare trees leaving and the blossoming return of flower. and variation in temperature. As cold as 4C, as warm as 16C. All in 2 weeks. Colder than the Philippines, for sure, but as much variation as a whole year.
