hello dear friends, today is a very tiring day for me. i just got back from visiting my hometown, its the place where i was born and raised and finished my elementary and secondary schooling, it's a dear small countrytown and farming is the main source of living. i traveled there at 6 AM and arrive at our old house at around 2 PM. the travel is quite tiring and slow because of traffic jam from the city where i am staying currently. i went there to visit my grandparents and to pay visit to our old house. i love that hometown of ours, there are less pollution and you can really unwind and relax, the breeze is cool and fresh that you would love to just lie on the grass and sleep in the middle of the field. :) i really love to stay there for long but i need to get back to where i am staying right now so i pack again at around 4 PM and traveled back home. i step my foot in front of our gate just this 9PM and finally had my dinner just few minutes ago. tomorrow will be another busy day for me since i need to get back to work again. do you visit your hometown too once in a while or still staying there? let's talk about your old town :)

My hometown is miles and miles away. It is actually on the island of Malta. I am now in Sydney Australia. When we were younger we used to visit, but these last eight years it is too much for us to go. I am nearly 78 and my wife is nearly 80.

it is not advisable for your age to keep traveling my friend.

I loved reading about your trip. Going home can be so relaxing even if you are only there for a few hours. I can be in my home town in about one and a half hours. I go quite often, perhaps twice a month to see my parents. Even all my friends have moved now, it is still pleasant to walk around our old haunts and remember happy times.

you said it right, coming back to our hometown brings back many happy childhood memory, i seldom go to my hometown since my parents are also living with me in the city.

I'm actually living in the town I grew up in a lot of years ago. I feels funny walking by streets where I used to live and schools I went to and graduated from after all these years.

I am glad that you had a delightful time going back to your home town and seeing your grandparents. It must have been interesting to see your old house and schools that you went to. It sounds like a pleasant place with some countryside around it. You must be quite tired. Well done for making such an early start and still having energy to write on My Lot after such a busy day. I was born in 1972 in a hospital about half an hour from where my family's home was. I have a sister five years older than me. We lived in a bungalow for three years then moved to a home my mum owned until 2005. When I was 19 I bought a tiny cottage and my sister bought a studio flat. I have more of a wish to visit the place I moved to when I was 19. I have lived away from home whilst studying and traveled to different places in the world. It is lovely to think back to the past.
