Welcome to the UK and the home of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), the league currently comprises of ten teams based across the UK, in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
It’s 12am, 11/1/2016 and I’m primed and ready to watch my second game of the weekend. Since it’s a home game I’ve been sporting my home jersey, since you know… They haven’t lost when I’ve worn it on the day and hey, it’s a hockey thing, those who know will understand. The puck drops and play begins. Ovechkin makes a shot on goal within the first minute of play and I like everyone else around the world watching are hoping and praying it goes in. For the next goal off the stick of the Washington Capitals Captain will be the milestone goal.
I’ve always said I wanted to live in Germany, anyone who knows me knows I call it my spiritual home. When I flew to Berlin for my 21st birthday, watching out of the window as the buildings and roads came into view on landing I felt an overwhelming sense of I’m home, so much so I cried and that leaving, even then, was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.
I knew I wanted to return one day and one day soon if I had the chance. That happened this year for my 26th birthday, almost 5 years had passed and landing at Berlin Schonefeld, it felt just the same, as if I’d never left.
I have severely neglected this blog, it’s been almost a year since I last posted anything of any real substance here and for that I apologise. A lot has changed this year, although at the same time so much is just the same.
But I can finally say I’m going to see Tokio Hotel in concert. March 6th 2015, I will be heading to London’s Islington Assembly hall to see the boys for the first time live. I’m beyond excited for this!
