I was back in Perth with a serious case of post-holiday blues. I’d never experienced this kind of sadness coming back home. When I arrived in Perth, it was a rainy night and I sat on my own in the backseat, looking out the window into the city, with tears falling from my eyes, thinking about how much I so badly wanted to be back in Spain.

Europe gave us the definite answer that next year, we were going to be living there. In the meantime, I was going to make the most of my life in Perth.
