Moving Away

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

Imagine spending your whole life in a small town, and you get the news that you’re visiting the place you’ve always dreamed about. The kind of place which you always hear about on the News or in movies and you’ve always wanted to see the iconic landmarks and experience the luxury of living there.
