2021 Week 4: Leaving Oxford

It has been a week of change: from a relatively settled state to a much more transient one. Eating imaginative combinations of the last of stocks in the pantry, blind drop-offs of possessions that exceed the luggage limits, and handing house keys over to new tenants. While I will miss Oxford, there’s an energising sense of adventure to hitting the road again, on a long journey to Auckland, New Zealand. While it is sad to be leaving so many good friends behind, in these video-call filled hours of the UK’s pandemic lockdown, there’s a very good chance that communication will be sustained into the future.
