The Highlands

November 11th, 2013 | Uncategorized

Our Scottish adventure this weekend with the U17 Kubs girls was so much fun, I am sure I will visit again.


First things first, it was nice to get outside of city centre living and just breathe the fresh, unpolluted (namely cigarette smoke free) air. It was heavenly, crisp, and so refreshing.


Second, it was great to have the opportunity to get to know all of our girls on a personal level. They all have such unique stories and are at a transformative time of their lives (believe me ladies, don’t rush it!) and its great to just listen to the gossip, who is doing what, etc. We won two games against the Inverness Bears; it was a great opportunity for everyone to play and develop as basketball players and get a little bit of a confidence boost as well. Huge birthday shout-out to Emma Costello who is 16!!


I finally want to give a huge thank you to David McKay, Frank Flood and John Kerray for making the trip possible. It was a great way to see a part of the world I never thought I would visit, from the likes of Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness (although no Nessie) and the beautiful Inverness city centre. Unfortunately we didn’t see anyone wearing a kilt and playing the bagpipe on this trip, but that just means we have something to look forward to on our next visit!


Currently up to my ears in coursework right now, but once I get this last assignment I’ll write some more interesting blogs. Next exciting event on the timetable: Ben (my boyfriend) is coming to visit and THANKSGIVING, Irish style.


Happy Veterans Day!
