To the friends I met across the pond

This post is going up the day before we leave, and honestly it doesn’t seem like it’s ending.
We just met. You don’t even know how many times I logged onto my laptop to just play around on google maps street view and get myself to the manor and around London. 
There have been so many times that I have felt truly grateful to have such great friends like you. 
People who care when I feel sad, and people who sometimes know me better than myself. People who make me laugh, and are there with open arms when one of us cries. We may have only met in January but it feels like I have known you my entire life. There’s no one else I would run up and down 5 flights of stairs for late at night. 
I have never smiled so much or laughed so hard. There’s no way words can even describe how much I love each of you. 

Travelling the world with you, has really been a pleasure, and something I will never, could never, forget. We conquered the tube the first weekend, navigated airports and train stations and countless cities. 
You mean the world to me. Leaving you really tears my heart in half. Even though, I know you’re going to be so happy to be home again. 

And I hope
That whatever roads we take, that we get to run into one another again, and that we never lose touch. 
Because I’ve never had best friends before. 
And these last four months have taught me what it’s like to finally have that. 
We have grown so much together. We’re literally the same people. I’m so glad I didn’t have to go through my entire life not knowing you.

I could never thank you each enough. I wrote all of you letters that you have to read on the plane ride home. I think a piece of my heart is going to be left behind in England, and left with all of you. They tell you making friends is the easy part, but they never tell you that it’s also the best part. It’s really about who you’re with that makes the adventure that much better.

Thanks for an amazing ride. Smiles, laughs and cries and long, late night talks. 

I love you all so much. And this isn’t goodbye. Because we’ll always have each other, Even if we’re more than a floor away from each other.

Until next time, 

see you soon, Kenzie
