I couldn’t believe the day was finally here I was going to Spain. Since Canada is such a huge country it’s hard and expensive for the athletes to travel together. Canada has 63 competitors from coast to coast. Competitors from Ontario and parts of Quebec took a shuttle bus to Dorval airport where we met up with other athletes from the East Coast. It was so exciting seeing all my team mates wearing our red TEAM CANADA track suites. We really stood out in the airport. Everyone was so excited and happy to see each other. The only thing that I found hard was saying good-bye to my brother and his girlfriend since they couldn’t come with us 🙁
After a 2 hour bus ride to Montreal, then a 7.5 hour flight to Paris, we had to take another 2 hour flight to Valencia followed by another 2 hour bus ride to Benidorm. I love to travel but I was feeling so nauseous with motion sickness! It was such a looooong day!
