Reisverslag First day
3 mei 2015
Today began early. I woke up at 6 in the morning. After taking a quick shower and eating some breakfast we left home to go to Schiphol. Both of my parents and my sister, Evi, went along to drop me of.
When I had checked in and dropped of my baggage, it was time to say goodbye. After a short hugging-session, I went to the gate. The waiting time was only half an hour. We departed around 10:40 The flight itself was without any problems. Around 11:50 the plane arrived at Birmingham airport.
My host, William, picked me up at the airport. Birmingham is an hour's drive away from Oxford. When we got to the house, Joy -William's wife- had some lunch ready for us.
After I had settled a bit, William took me to Oxford. He showed me the bus-route and how I am supposed to get to Blackwell's, where I'll be doing some work experience in the next weeks. After drinking some coffee, we went back to the car. Only to be surprised by some extremely heavy rain. We got to the car soaking wet.
At the house, having put on dry clothes, dinner was ready. It was a great meal. Joy is an excellent cook. Now, being tired from the long day, I am going to relax for a while. Tomorrow is another day. Hopefully it is a good one.

Klinkt goed, veel plezier en als je je verveelt kun je altijd nog in de trein naar Chester springen!
