Travel more often stirs excitement, curiosity and, sometimes, even jealousy. But alas, for some of us, frequent travelers, the word travel is also synonym of separation - be it for a few days or a few months.
I stumbled upon this statue at King's Cross station in London - which is on the international departures floor - and immediately thought of the loved ones I leave behind every time I zip my suitcase and lock the door. Surely I'm not the only one in that situation?
It made me wonder if all these plane tickets, postcard-like photos and passport stamps were worth the loneliness of being a solo traveler, the guilt that pangs every time I see something I know my other half would love as well. In the end, I think it is worth it - after all, the world is such a big place, and we only have one life to live, right?
But that doesn't mean it gets easier to say goodbye, especially when I see a statue that portrays precisely how I feel.
If you're a solo traveler who sometimes long for company, this statue is a must-see.
Or even if you're happy being on your own, the single fact that the statue is 2-floors high is a good enough reason to go!http://www.networkrail.co.u...
