Arch recently asked the question, where do you go and feel that you are in an alien culture? i.e. where do you stick out like a sore thumb?! That got me thinking. Where do I feel most at home (apart from home of course)? I know for a lot of people on here that might be when they are out on the bike. However, for me my first love is judo. I've been a judo player for 27 years now . I feel most comfortable taking to the mat (otherwise known as the magic carpet). I know exactly what I am doing, I feel completely comfortable with all of the people who take part, I love the banter and the camaraderie. I know that I could go to any judo club in the world and within an hour I would have new friends. When I am doing judo my mind is fully focused on it and anything that has been troubling me, melts away. So where do you feel most at home (apart from home)? If you had choice what would you be doing, or where would you be?
