Officerjames 24,

Keep calm, think positive and give it your best shot. It will be mind over matter.
I remember how nervous I was ! It is perfectly normal.
"Bonne chance."
I’m glad to hear it’s normal, my
heart was racing when i booked the tickets

Hello,
Where are you flying into and where is the hotel? End of December or beginning of January 2022? Well hope you have all the ducks lined up from your end and put yourself in the best position possible to get accepted.

There's a police officer in NZ who was a member of the GCP for a number of years. You may want to look him up.

Taikato, is the name of the police officer, If I haven't spelt his name wrong.
thank you, I’m going to need a lot of luck
No you're not. I would recommend a crash course on my playlist, : job offer legionnaire.
Also you have a check list of what to take with you. Have you checked out the plugs?
Do you know how to get from the air port to your hotel? Do NOT take a taxi. You will have 3 days to reconnoiter how to get to F de Nogent from you hotel. Do NOT turn up in a taxi.

I stand corrected on the taxi from the airport. Make sure that you confirm you reservation with the hotel and let them know what time you flight arrives. Have the hotel written down on a piece of paper in your folder (which you will will find under Job offer: the one that got away.)
F@ck, I'm as excited about this as you are.

my travel agent has secured it for me. The hotel has a shuttle to and from the airport. I’m really excited and nervous, It will be my first time out of New Zealand. also would 0700 be a good time to knock on the gates?
thank you for your time joseph

I'd make it around 10 o'clock, it gives you enough time to have a big breakfast and then do some loosening up exercises. Don't forgot that the January 01 202 2, everyone will have a hang over, give them a little time to get over it.
BTW, I did a video, which gives the history of Vauban's Forts around Paris, you might like to check it out, at least you'll know why it is there.
I repeat, do NOT get a taxi to the fort. Go on the metro, you have got 3 days in which to find the place.
