Hello from Zagreb!!
We arrived here on Monday early in the afternoon and after settling into the rooms we went out for a quick lunch in town. That evening, we got on the official ice and were able to get a feel for the atmosphere and lay out our programs. After the successful practice we went back to the hotel and slept. We were tired, but couldn’t wait for the next day!
Yesterday we woke up and went downtown to the center of Zagreb. We went to a beautiful church and a fun farmers market where we got to immerse ourselves in the culture of Croatia. After a nice afternoon, we headed back to the hotel via trolley and got ready for out second practice on the competition ice. We worked very hard on both programs and even had an audience of a young local team to preform to.
Overall, we have been having an amazing experience at our first Junior World Championships and can’t wait to see what the rest of the week has in store!
