Anyway, as it was our last day today, we made a quick trip to the airport early to check in our luggage and then proceeded swiftly to Amsterdam. We enjoyed a canal boat tour of the city and then Thomas decided to repeat the tour but instead on foot…..not happy!!! Nah, it was good, although some people should close their curtains because you could see them through their windows standing in their underwear (although, come to think of it, there were a lot of red lights about?!!). Jokes aside, our trip to ESA has been a fantastic experience and we thank the guys at ESTEC immensely for the opportunity. Jerker and Adam are on their way back to Sweden whilst Thomas and Malcolm prepare to brave the snow of Scotland again!!!!
We shall let you all know the decision of the judging panel for Rexus as soon as we find out, wish us luck!!!!

Whilst there we made our presentation. Even in the absence of a morning coffee, we think that we did our best at the presentation as well as answering the questions from the selection board.
After the presentation we had a small ("wee") amount coffee to celebrate (8 x Espresso for Jerker) and then listened to all of the BEXUS proposals. When arriving back at the hotel we went down to the snowy beach shown in the pictures. Now begins the long wait until next Friday (10th) when the results from the selection board is posted. Wish us the best of luck!
