Daily Prompt: A Tale of Two Cities

If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?

London and Tuscany, fo’sure. I’ve never been to Florence but – and this will sound exceptionally stupid – I have played enough Assassin’s Creed on the PlayStation for me to fall head over heels for central Italy. In terms of London, it’s where I study, and although most of the people I’ve met are leeches sucking the compassion out of my daily life,  the place itself is beautiful and I am in love.

I was discussing our respective Universities with a friend last night. We both felt that where we ended up studying, were the places we were meant to be. It’s such a good feeling of contentment to know you’re in the right place. Somewhere you’re comfortable residing in and you won’t tire of easily. A kind of place that, if you’re away from, will serenade you with its ordinary streets and people. Where upon your every return, you feel welcomed and a restlessness within you disappears. Even when faced with mounting piles of lab reports and tutorial coursework, to know you’re in the right place is a relief among stresses.
