2012 Classic Trip Journal


15 July 2012


July 15th - long day today, longest on tour.

Departed Germany at 10 pm via motor-coach and arrived Sweden at 10:30 am, after 2 ferry crossings, a few movies, and lots of Autobahn miles, but it was still fun

Kids are really excited as we drove through Gothenburg, a fabulous city and one of the prettiest harbors in all of Europe.

Hotel rooms not ready yet, guess we were too early, so we take all on a walking tour of Central  Station, Norstran Mall, Gothenburg Opera House and Waterfront, visit the Viking Ship, take numerous pics, walk to Heden Center which is heartbeat of Gothia  Cup, and back to hotel to check in to room.  Our  hotel is like an executive apartment with full kitchens, etc. Boys shop for groceries and make their own lunches, wish them luck!!!

Training at 3:30 on Heden, break a sweat, and get some nerves sorted out.

Dinner at 6:30, great first meal, fish, potatoes, salad, breads, pasta, lunch meat, berries, crackers, awesome meal.
Team registration at 7:30 pm, meeting  at 9, curfew  at 10

Hate this day, but  we survived it.
