Partly sunny

First Post: Arrival in Italy.

Hello Everyone~
I have made it safe and sound to Italy! It is so pretty here! The mountains that we get get to look at everyday are pretty awesome! It is pretty cold here! Its about 35 the highest outside and that is what we get to skate in because the rink is outside on top of these mountains it feels like! This is just a normal hard week training for us! Then we head back to Germany to be able to get all of our USA gear! I can’t wait to see it all! I am pretty excited! So, so far we’ve just been back to our normal training and getting ready for the Games! Oh ya, and of course trying to stay warm also!! This is all I have for now, but I will get more once I have a little bit more also! Thanks so much for listening and behind behind me along for this ride!
