Got to the airport and waited through a long line to check in. After said good bye to my wonderful parents and made my way through security. Once through got to the gate and met up with Greg, Nate, John G, and a surprize Jeff from the Canadian team.
It was a very long flight over. I got to sit next to Nate which was nice since i finally got to know him a bit better (he is a bit shy). We watched a movie and attempted to sleep. Greg sat a few rows ahead of us and was chatting away with an Italian guy in half spanish half english.
Once we arrived at the airport we got through customs and got our bags very quickly. We were hoping it would take a bit longer since we had a long time to wait. Once out we found one of the Canadian girls and sat around in the airport for a LONG time. Slowly people started joining us. We played cards and talked so it wasnt so bad. We also got everyone to sign a birthday card for Kelsey since it was her birthday. I made her an orienteering card with happy birthday written in conturs. WE gave it to her at dinner and sang. She had a candle that we stuck into a piece of bread!
Finally everyone was here and we got on the bus. It was a long and exciting ride to the place where we are staying. Big buses on small roads in amazing!
Once there we settled in. WE had a flag war to see who could put up the most flags. The girls totally won and the guys were jealous so started stealing them. The girls also did circuit, which was a blast! We did it listening to last years JWOC mix and laughing a ton!
We are now in the main town. We just did food shoping and had some time to look around. There are a ton of JWOC banners all over the place which is awesome!!! we are in the library writing this. This afternoon we get to go out on our first training!!!! I cant wait!!!!
