Kopavogur, Iceland

I can't believe its August been super busy this last bit of July it has just flown... We have had two really big games and won both! the first one we were down 2-0 with a man down and came back and won 3-2. I made some big 1v1 saves in the second half but the girls really played hard for eachother to bring home the win. The second game we were tied at half, and most of the game, 1-1 but then in the extra time minutes scored our second goal to take the victory!! Very sweet wins and much needed for our teams confidence. We dont have any games till the 5th but that is the start of the Champions league so well also play the 7th and the 10th.
We had yesterday off so my roommate and friend took a cross country trip to see the glacier lake, and let me tell you pics do not do it any justice. It really takes your breath awway how pretty and old this glacier is. On our way to the lake we stopped and saw two really cool waterfalls, one of which you could walk behind. Our journey started at leaving a lil after 7:15am and returning home at 9pm. But this journey took us from the very west of the island to the east so long but worth it.
Oh my friend sam and I hiked to see Glymur which is the tallest waterfall in iceland which is awesome! Although the terrain is kinda dangerous not too many tourists were on this path. At some points we would be on all fours sliding over a rock or trying to traverse across it. But totally worth it when you get to the top and see this jurassicesc looking scene.
We have had a few extra trainings during the week which were good and I have been working out extra as well and cooking some good things. Tonight I made a pepper steak with a mushroom cream sauce with fries on the side and a salad. Oh and of course garlic bread and a coke!
Oh I almost forgot so our team has groups now and your group has to come up with a fun thing to do for the team, like bonding. And the first groups activity was soccer tennis! So everyone got split into groups of 4 and you all had to have a signature costume that everyone wore, like a team. It was pretty hilarious one team was costume animals one was like a spandex fitness intructor look with unibrows and one was just simple orange shirts black shorts. We played it like a tournament and when it was over we all ate pizza and pop and then went and watched our junior girls play.
I am getting very excited for my trip to Sweden and most importantly Italy! I leave in 9 days now and am so excited. Well im gonna go to bed now but hope all is well back home.
