30 Days Blogging – Day 12: If I could move anywhere…

The ‘official’ title of the twelfth topic of the 30 Days Blogging Challenge is “Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.”. I’ve very much decided to go with the “move” options because for years I have been harbouring desires to one day move to a different country.
