My second home in England I went by chance. After a bad experience at work I needed a break, first I visited my friend in Tangier, and one week after I decided to go to England.
First I phoned a friend from Uni (Sandra) but I was not in mood for being a nanny, childs are great for their mothers LOL, So I decided to phone a friend from Bilbao from my childhood, Nuria, and she said, come no prob.... I booked the flight and 3 days after the conversation I arrived to Leicester.
I went for a month with an open ticket, but in two weeks I got a job with British Gas and I decided to stay all summer.
Then I decided to stay until Christmas to get the Advance certificate, and in September I got the chance to enrol university, so I stayed a year.
After a year I decided to do the Hons of the degree.... so finally I stayed two years.
I still consider England my second home. England gave me chance that my own country did not give to me ...
And I meet great people over there ... Some I had been in touch through the years, some of them I have re-meet here on facebook, others you loose contact through life...
