Day 2 – Brussels Belgium
By Mackenzie Horkey
Northern Lights 16-1
Today, we woke up at 7:15 and went down to the Papendal Training Center for some breakfast. After that we packed up and ran through pouring rain to our vans, for a two hour ride where most of us slept.
We finally got to Brussels! We then all got ready to play the Belgium Youth National Team. The first game we lost by a little, but played very well! The next three games, we did not do as well and lost…Over all the most important part is playing aggressive and having fun!
We all got ready to go shopping and see the famous “Manneken Pis!” When we got there, we ate some famous and delicious “Belgium Waffles” covered with strawberry, bananas and CHOCOLATLE! We all separated into threes and went shopping in the rain for lots of gifts for our families and ourselves.
All of us then traveled back by bus to the Eurovolleycenter, where we watched the Germans vs. Austrians! We all left half way through the match to eat an amazing supper, chicken and potatoes with vegetables. Ending the day we packed a little and got some well needed sleep!
