French Exchange Day 1: the journey down

At 9.30 today, 22 excited Tomlinscote students left Britain and headed for Lille in order to meet their French Exchange partners for the first time.

After a quiet journey to Folkestone, they all struck a pose for a group photo before getting on the Shuttle train through the Channel tunnel.

Once in France, nerves started to hit a little as they awaited the arrival of their partners but after an awkward moment and a kiss or two, everyone left for their new homes, seemingly more reassured.

Tomorrow will include an account of our first visit of Lille and one of its numerous markets.

A demain!
