We finally caught some zzzz’s after a long first day of traveling. Needless to say we all passed out the minute our heads hit the pillow last night. For breakfast, our tables were filled with sweets and coach especially loved the brownies. After breakfast we did our pre-game stretch and jog sesh. Coach exercised his charade skills trying to ask some local coaches to allow us use their field. Luckily for us, Caitlin and Sam speak French and saved the day. After a quick turn around, we headed off to Cannes for our daily adventure. We missed the Cannes film festival, but luckily Justin Timberlake was spotted in the area. Our explorations took us to many different places including a castle and Cathedral high up on a mountain in the historic district, high-end retail (Gucci, Prada, well you get the gist), and enjoying the daily culture of the French caf├ęs. We even got to spend some time relaxing on the beach looking out over the Mediterranean and all it’s sailboats. After a full day of sight seeing, we headed off to play our first international friendly against the Cannes Bocca Olympique. It was a great game which we won 7-2. Goals were scored by Michelle, Kelsey (own goal), Erin, Sydney, Enisa, and Tina Rader. Afterwards, they had a picnic on the field with us complete with food and presents! We were able to enjoy their company and get to know a little about them and their culture. Our new friend Chloe is currently finding our whole team on all social networks. We had dinner after at our hotel, and now we are headed to bed to get ready for another adventure-filled day in Monaco!
