The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try tomorrow."
Well today was that day. I landed in Paris, well Ryanair call it Paris but Beauvais is 2 hours away by bus. So here I was in Paris, on my first solo trip. I really did not know what to expect or what I was going to do for the next 3 months or even if it was going to be a 15 month trip or not. That was a lot of "or"'s but that just shows how little I knew at this stage.
All I knew was that I really wanted to go to Paris again. I love this city so much. After that, well, it was honestly up to the Gods to decide. If I passed my exams I would be going to do a Masters course in September.
So after a long stroll around the city, I decided to sample the culture by going to a traditional French café on the street for lunch, so naturally enough I ended up in an Indian restaurant on the street...as you do. There were the most fierce thunder storms that I had ever heard today but that still did not stop me from wearing my shorts and t-shirt. I was on holiday after all.
Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
