And so it begins...

And so I depart. It's currently Saturday 11th September - 22:28 (GMT)
At 04:30 Monday 13th September, I will awake and I will leave my house for the very last time for the next 10 months.

My train leaves Gloucester train station at 05:19, where I must travel to London (Only changing once). At Paddington station. I will then have to get the tube and will arrive at Kings Cross at 07:46.

At 08:27 I will board the Eurostar train, and I will OFFICIALLY begin my travels.

It's only just sinking in how real this is becoming. Today I have said my goodbyes to family and friends and all I can say now is; I have never felt like this before in my entire life. As well as bricking it at the thought of being alone, I feel an overwhelming sense of excitement as this is going to be a year of my life I will never forget.

So followers, friends or anyone who's stumbled upon this, at 15:17 on Monday the 13th September, I will have arrived in Strasbourg; Tired, nervous and carrying my life in a suitcase.

And so will begin the most incredible 10 months of my life.
