After two weeks of training in Belfast and Dublin, we finally arrived in Galway! Our Irish host family, the Coughlans, have done an amazing job welcoming us and helping us get settled in. Between having us over for dinner, taking us around town, and being great company, they’ve been a tremendous help! After just a few hours here in Galway, I fell in love with it. Not having much coaching this week gave me the opportunity to walk around and explore my new university, NUIG, and the city some. Everything is pretty much walking distance, which is very helpful. The city is so up-beat and lively, and the people everywhere are so friendly; it has made the transition so much easier!
It was also great to into my new apartment, which I can call home for the next year. After a few days, I finally unpacked everything, but I’m still working on getting everything organized and decorating a little to make it feel like home!
It’s been nice having some free time to do a little shopping, exploring, and stuff before school starts, but I’m excited for classes and basketball training to get underway! I’ve had a few training sessions with the Titans, where I was able to meet the team, but I can’t wait for everything to be in full gear next week. I was actually registering for classes the other day, and I needed help with something and the girl I asked happened to be one of my Mystics teammates…what a small world. So needless to say I was excited to meet another teammate; and I can’t wait to meet the rest of the Mystics team this weekend!
