The Utah women's basketball team is currently on a 10-day trip through Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Follow the Utes travels as they travel through Scandinavia through player diaries and photos, which will be posted each day of their trip. Today's diary entry is from Rachel Messer.
Hello from Sweden!
I'm sure you all are dying to know how our first full day overseas went...so, I'm going to tell you. We woke up and ate an amazing breakfast in the hotel before we went on a two hour tour of Stockholm. It was remarkable to see how other people live and the different cultures within a city. We got to see old town, the palace, guards, and many islands and pretty views throughout the City. We took full advantage and took a LOT of pictures. :)
After that we were all exhausted and napped until our first pre-game meal of the trip. We finished eating and had to leave for the game fairly soon after that because we had an almost two hour bus ride to the game. The game went fairly well considering all the travel we experienced. We were a little rusty, tired, and struggled at times but ended up winning by 30 points. We've had a great trip so far and we are doing our best to experience everything we possibly can!! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
