I love my program. I love how outside of class, the school organizes fun trips for us :D We’re exactly one month in, but we’ve already been out twice – first to the Ouchy Curling Centre and the other to the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale). They were both SO MUCH FUN!! Never in my life would I imagine myself curling or cycling.. But the school gave us the opportunity to try both!
Curling was meant to be a team-building exercise. And boyyy was it -.- I think most people have negative views on curling (myself included), but actually giving it a try really changed my perspective. I have to admit it’s not the most… interesting spectator sport (Edward and I watched it at the Vancouver Olympics and weren’t impressed), but it is actually really fun to play. They make it look soo easy on TV but it is actually crazy tricky. It doesn’t help that none of us knew of the rules prior to playing LOL. We were all so clueless!
The sport of curling has Scottish origins and is played with “stones” (pictured below)
