Sandwiched by Britain's referendum vote to leave the EU and any formal implications actually being agreed upon, Before the Blue Passport collates a diaristic six month exploration of foreign landscape and social engagement as a British student within the Erasmus European exchange programme. I found my time in this environment underwritten by a sort of pre-Brexit anxiety and a heightened feeling of being an outsider; Britain's future involvement with this social initiative was, both at the time and arguably even more so now, in serious doubt.
