CLAIRE LORRAINE MURPHY

FROM: WEXFORD, IRELAND
AGE: 20 | ZODIAC: AQUARIUS
 
Hi, my name is Claire and I am from county Wexford. I am twenty one years old. My birthday is the 2nd of February and my star sign is Aquarius. I am currently packing up my life and preparing for a big move to Germany for my Erasmus year. I am so excited for this experience but it is becoming slightly more daunting as the 3rd of September, my departure date, draws nearer.
 
Anyone that knows me will understand why I have three boxes of lyons tea bags included in my luggage. The quality of my tea is one thing I won’t compromise!
 
I have lots to do over the next week. Between goodbyes and last minute purchases I am sure it will be an eventful one! I am going to miss my family a lot over the next year, especially my sister Ciara, but with skype we can keep in regular contact and I will be home at Christmas too! Rosie, unfortunately, has no grasp on technology or skype and so I won’t be seeing much of her.
 
Rosie, by the way, is my beloved dog who I am going to miss tremendously over the next few months!
 
The next time I will be in touch I will be in the airport which is a scary prospect but also a very exciting one! Until then !  

SEAN KENNEDY
FROM: DUBLIN, IRELAND
AGE: 20 | STAR SIGN: LEO
 
Having been to France before, I know they do tea a lot differently to us. I’m an avid Lyons tea drinker. As a result I packed 240 Lyons tea bags into my cases and brought them with me…that should keep me going for about a month.
 
I’m extremely nervous about the first few days as the rest of my friends going with me don’t arrive until later in the week so I’ll be all alone in a foreign city for a few days.Even still I can barely wait to get on the plane and get going.
 
Next time I talk to you I’ll be in the “Sunny-South-East” of France!
