Looking forward to getting back to good old Pompey

Nostalgia in the attic

RICK JACKSON: Lofty ambitions dashed by memories

Have your say

There are just a few weeks to go until our big adventure (travelling the world for a TV programme on vegetarian food) is over.

How do I feel? A little weird, I guess. On the one hand I am super-excited at seeing my family and friends in Pompey again.

No matter where you go in the world, no matter how fabulous, it’s not home.

On the other hand, this trip has been incredible and absolutely the ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity I’d hoped it would be.

Matt and I have had a blast, although he’ll say he’ll be glad that the constant ‘ah, my babies would love it here’ comments will be over.

I don’t have any babies myself, but my sister does (next best thing – for now) and they really would have had a fantastic time.
