Sochi – First week

After a very long day from leaving Saalfelden, Austria 6.00am to Munich, flying Air Siberia (with a hefty excess luggage fee) via Moscow, I’ve arrived safely to the New Zealand House in Sochi in the early hours of the following morning.  Pretty neat set up, lots of good gear from MonsRoyale, Peak and Samsung and working internet in the bedroom we’re good to go!  Have had a bit of a chance to walk around and get my bearings then training got underway the following morning before the Opening Ceremony in the evening. What a fantastic feeling to be part of such a Ceremony! Definitely not something I will ever forget.  Back on the bus at midnight to take us back to Kiwi House.
