Epsom, Surrey is one of my favourite places to go in the United Kingdom. Not because there are horse races or lovely walks that often feature puppies, but because it’s where my grandparents live.
I have memories of playing cricket in the backyard, reading Harry Potter books on the window reading nook of my room, and flying kites on the Downs.
Travelling a lot is an absolute privilege, but there are places which always stand above the rest. Where we grow up and where we go on holiday often are those places. Not necessarily because of the area in itself, but because of the memories that they evoke.
