Good evening/Goedenavond everyone! This is Alex writing for you my first blog post before I head off to the wonderful world of Buitenzorg, the Netherlands. I am really looking forward to exploring my new surroundings and meeting all the groups of scouts and guides visiting the camp over the next 5 weeks. It’s going to be a summer to remember!

I have spent most of my time  brushing up on my Dutch- which will hopefully come in good use in the next 5 weeks- and packing half my house into a single hold-all. Tomorrow, at midnight, I will be heading to the airport for my flight to Amsterdam, where my adventure will begin…Wish me luck!
