Hello friends & happy Tuesday! We spent the weekend in Klaipeda, Lithuania participating in the Lithuanian cup and I can’t wait to share it with you all today.
Last year we were also playing in the cup, but Logan and I were in Houston at the time and missed it. This year we were excited to go and see da-da play for a medal. Thankfully, they got one! They took home the bronze and we are so proud of Zo and his team for their accomplishment. This year our team has had lots of changes and lots of ups and downs, but through it all they always show heart and spirit and we are so proud to be apart of this team.
Klaipeda is a port city in Lithuania and I haven’t been there in 10 years! I was excited to go back and as many of you know, the last time I was in Lithuania was under stressful and sad circumstances. This was an opportunity for me to experience the city on happy and fun terms…and I did.
We spent quite a bit of time in the arena, obviously and it was a great and lively atmosphere.
We spent one morning with one of my friends in old town and really enjoyed that. My sweet friend Leila and I have not seen each other since I was in Klaipeda a decade ago and I was so excited to see her. Not one thing changed and we picked up right where we left off. She was such a special friend when I was in Klaipeda before and helped me in so many ways navigate life at that time. Grateful to say the least.
I also enjoyed a great night out with my favorite Australian who was our teammate last season. Ben and Bria are special friends of ours and anytime we get together is a night full of laughs…literally!
Logan and I spent our time at the Radisson and we had a great time as always. We love staying at the Radisson Blu when we are in Eastern Europe. They never disappoint with the American buffet breakfast, spacious rooms, amazing room service, best bar drinks and desserts, and cozy beds!
We are club Carlson members with them and the points add up quick. Every spa is amazing at the Radisson Blu so we enjoy using those perks as well. I had no time for the spa this weekend…but they truly have the best ones if you stay at any of their chains.
Klaipeda is only about 3 hours from our home in Lithuania so it’s not too bad of a drive and Logan did pretty great. My little travel buddy has got it down!
The weather was great, sun was out, people were friendly, and the vibes amazing. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and I got to see and meet some fellow wives from other teams.
I had a blast and can’t wait to travel a bit more before we head home back to Texas!
