Bonjour!

In addition to training and preparation, Roosa was able to explore some sights.

It has been almost two weeks since I got on an airplane towards a city called Évreux located in Northern France, 100 km from Paris. Indeed, I’ve loved every day so far!

From the first day I arrived here, I’ve never felt more welcome. (Roosa Laakkonen)

From the first day I arrived here, I’ve never felt more welcome. All of my teammates, coaches and club members made sure I was doing fine and got everything I need. We may not share the same language, but there’s always someone helping to translate. Alternatively, you can smile and pretend you understood everything. Did I do so? Oops! Luckily an American teammate and I are starting our French lessons soon so we can have a goal on speaking fluent French in spring. 😉

However, fall always means a start of something new, a new season with a new team. (Roosa Laakkonen)

We had our first practice tournament this past weekend in Clamart, Paris. It was a successful one since we won all of our three games and also saw the Eiffel tower! Our playing wasn’t always pretty, but luckily there’s still time left to prepare ourselves for the first official match on the 22nd of September. I can’t wait for that!

We still have hot summer weather in Évreux and have to enjoy it before fall and coldness comes. However, fall always means a start of something new, a new season with a new team. This fall I’m excited for what’s happening. Bring it on season 2018/2019!

 

Au revoir!
