I mean it! Can you imagine how hungry a gymnast can get? We must keep fit, but damn me and my team kinda ate like animals during this week! If you don't believe me, our breakfast was always 2 breads, a juice, a glass of coffee and milk and a banana. Never really ate this much in the morning in my entire life, but this week was special and our stomachs were insanely hungry. And the worst part, at least for me was the lunches! All the gymnasts reunited at lunch time to eat on a gigantic tent, and we couldn't really choose what we wanted to eat, and boy did I had a horrible time at lunch because of this. Everything was always terrible and I would get so hungry and mad. There was even one day I saw the food and it was something that I really, really didn't like and I just started crying out of frustration (but again, I'm kind of a crying baby) and had ended leaving the place alone to find a place and buy a stupid hot dog!
"I like flying, jumping, moving, sharing, smiling, I'm simply gymnast!"
Well, honestly because I just felt like it. But if I think about it, it makes perfect sense to share here in the blog how I got the travel bug, and there's no better moment in my life (just my Erasmus of course) than this event, where I first got in contact with so many nationalities, languages and costumes!
If you're a gymnast and you're reading this, my advice is: Go! It can be a little expensive yes, but what you'll get out of it, what you'll learn, who you'll meet, and just the fully experience of being a part of something that amazing and something that's bigger than you, will make you smile from ear to ear, and trust me, the money you'll give for it won't count for nothing and you'll come home richer.
