Flight is all booked....leave Bristol airport for Bordeaux at lunchtime on Thursday 27th September. Have been really lucky on two counts:
1) The conseiller pedagogique has told us all we can stay with him and he will help us sort out accommodation etc as we get settled in. He's also sent us some useful info about getting phones/internet etc, as well as some more info about our training 'stage', looks like we will have a day in Bordeaux and then 5 days in Perigueux itself so that sounds good.
2) I've been in touch with a lovely girl who lives about half an hour away and we're going to fly out together which should be a lot better I think.
So yeah organisation is getting there now, woo!
