Sailing trip booked

Good morning!

Last November, as a birthday present, Luis gave me a sailing trip from Swanage in Dorset to the Isle of Wight. It is gonna be a 6-hour sailing trip and I am so excited. 

EXCEPT! I need to be the one driving there. Luis driving license has expired. I am so nervous. You can't believe. I am gonna drive in London. I am picking up the car in Euston and after that, I will be driving towards Swanage. It is 3h30... OMG. Why have I done this to myself? I have never driven on the right-hand side neither.

Once I picked up a car in the middle of Madrid. I was hysterically laughing because I was so nervous and that Avis was placed in the middle of Madrid busiest street. I was sure we were going to die. Maybe I would not feel so scared if I was used to driving. But the fact is that I got my drivings licence when I was 19. But then I moved to London when I was 20 and in London, nobody drives and I never wanted and probably could never afford to own and drive a car in here. 

But regardless it is definitely gonna be an adventure and I am very excited. We are gonna drive down to Swanage on the 13th and spend the night at a hotel and then sail the whole day on the 14th and then we (I) will drive home to London again. I am obviously gonna make a vlog about the whole experience and I am so happy to finally sail. I have never done it but it has been a dream of mine since I was a child. I always wanted to be a pirate. I have also read so much about sailing and different types of sailing boat. One of my biggest dreams it to sail from South Africa to Antarctica and up to South America with the boat 'Bark Europa'.  This trip will help me realise if I actually will like sailing or not.
