Over the last few months I have had an overwhelming feeling of wanting to move away. Somewhere close to the sea, countryside and open space.

I feel hemmed in closer to London. I love walking but have felt unable to go far during this pandemic.

Although this move is not something I would have thought of doing before, the thought of it makes me feel happy during difficult times.

I do have a job I love with a great company but since the virus I am not sure that is enough.

I know the restrictions on life now will be the same everywhere and there are lots of things to consider.

Really just wondering if anyone else has felt the same?

It's my Nightmare to have to live in London. I am so glad to live out in the countryside where the garden, views of open country, hills, trees, fields, wildlife, able to be outside, but also to talk to neighbours, family and friends on the internet and sometimes over the gate.

Life has not been so bad. I do miss the freedom to go for a day in the city, or wander round the shops etc., but I would rather be here and well for a while yet! Life is still good, and one day in the not so distant future it may get better again.

Think many of us are feeling hemmed in with future travel plans hard to make.
