Icarus Lives!

Arriving at Exeter airport with just a bag on my back and a passport in my pocket I said a tearful goodbye to friends and family. Part of me wondered if this was the right decision to make but the other part of myself told me I need to do this! After checking in my bag and going through security I sat in the airport lounge trying to spend my last few pound coins as I realised I won’t need them for a while.
As soon as we boarded I started to get moths in my belly, like butterflies but worse! I don’t recall much of the flight as I fell asleep shortly after takeoff but the passenger beside me told me I wasn’t snoring which was a relief.
Coming into Amsterdam was wonderful as you could see all the wind farms on the coast and then the flatlands as we descended. Getting out of Schiphol airport was very confusing and couldn’t work the train ticket machine, luckily someone helped me out. After about 19 minutes on the train I arrived in Amsterdam to start my adventure.
