In these uncertain times, where our travel is limited, where we question our sense of home, and with the curtain closing on our relationship with Europe, we invite you to take a journey.

With themes of identity, border crossing and migration at its heart, in this audio piece from Two Destination Language you will discover where hope meets reality, you’ll look towards the future and back at what we have just left.

Discover the story of a young woman's first travel to the UK, following her steps from Sofia airport in Bulgaria. In gently questioning what home is, the piece reflects on all things that make our home – family, friends, the environment and our possessions – the physical things which support, reinforce and bind our identity.
