Euro 2015 – Gennevilliers and Colombe

Posted: May 1, 2015 in Euro 2015

I’ve found that I enjoy my blog most when I look back at trips and remember the amazing people, places and experiences.  It’s kind of a personal travel notebook for me – although there are probably better approaches for that sort of thing. 

And now I find myself 9 days into my longest European trip without any blog entries! Better start now.

This trip came about because of my wife’s and daughter’s skating teams participating in the Nations Cup Theater On Ice.  I believe France developed this team based figure skating competition which the call Ballet On Ice. So we began our trip with 5 days in Gennevelliers and Colombes. Our hotel was in Gennevelliers and the rink was in Colombe.

 
   

  

Fancy McDonalds in Gennevilliers.

  

We brought two teams: an adult team and a junior team. Both teams skated phenomenally. Everyone stepped up and pulled off their very best performances. Ultimately, the adults took 6th place (in the world) and the junior team took 4th place.

 
Karen, one of our skaters was selected to represent all of the US adult skaters in speaking an oath of sportsmanship. She did great!
