July already – this means it is just 16 days until I wave goodbye to the UK and head for Belgium, my home for the summer!

I want to start by saying a huge thank you to three of my colleagues from Venture Abroad, Alice, Pav and Ken, who this time last week were in De Kluis readying our site for the arrival of our first group of the summer – saves me a job and for that I am extremely grateful! The good news is that they weren’t met with wind and rain as many of us were experiencing here in the UK, in fact, Ken even came back with a little bit of a sun tan!

The next time you hear from me I will be settling in to ‘life on camp’ and welcoming our first arrivals into De Kluis – I can’t wait!

Watch this space for more updates from me and some of our group leaders who will appear as guest bloggers throughout the summer.

Bon Voyage…or should I say Goede reis!
