Bad referees

Kokkola's volleyball team; my host father running up.

I spent the day with my second ex-host family, going to lunch with my “mom” and two “sisters”. They have gotten so big, yet don’t seem to have changed at all! Still as antsy as ever, never being able to sit still. We then went to see “dad” play in his volleyball match; the second highest league in Finland – Kokkola vs. Oulu. It was a big game, I was told it could mean Kokkola moving up to the highest league if they won. It was so close, but the referee seemed to be making some really bad calls, even though I know little about volleyball it was still obvious. Especially when he failed to notice the ball hitting the ground on Oulu’s side! Kokkola just barely lost, and I’m sure many think that if fair calls were made they would have won. Hopefully there is another year left for Janne on the team, as he is the oldest member, but not the oldest in the league.

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.

I'm a 21-year-old student originally from Canada, but currently on an adventure in Belgium for the semester. This blog will follow me, my musings, and whatever shenanigans I get up to while I travel around Europe and occassionally attend classes.
