    Leaving home

    April 11, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    This morning we arrived at Gatwick Airport at 6am. We stayed at my parents a few days before and went bowling and did fun stuff with them and Mia, but I was a bit ill from being so stressed with moving out the flat so couldn't do as much as we wanted. We met Fabien's parents and Giselle at the airport and had breakfast with them then said our goodbyes.

    Our rucksacks weighed about 6-7kg each at this point. I didn't get a chance to get a photo of the contents of my bag but Fabien got one of his. Here's a picture of Fabien at the gate with everything he owns for the next 6 months.

    We flew with Thomas Cook direct from Gatwick to Goa for £170 each. A last minute booking because it was such a bargain.
