On Wednesday, we went to the Adriatic Sea on the northern coast of Italy. I was surprised by how nice the public beach was. It was so much nicer than the public beaches we are used to back at home. There were rows of umbrella chairs, public restrooms and lounge areas. When we arrived, the heat was overbearing, but the water was the perfect temperature!
Shortly after arriving, our team decided to rent canoes and paddle boats. We did everything one could think of with two canoes and a paddle boat - racing, jumping from boat to boat, and more. It was so much fun bonding with the whole team in the ocean.
After our wonderful trip to the beach, we went to a local pizzeria for pre-game. We enjoyed pizza and pasta. Following our meal we departed to our game to play the Udine club team. We played hard and pulled out a win!
It's been a great trip so far and we're looking forward to a great season!
