Stockholm ice hockey tournament trip

After returning from Japan, we spent a few days at home and then I and Aapo were on the road again. This time our destination was Stockholm. Aapo’s ice hockey team had their first tournament trip abroad. As I’m one of the two team leaders of the team, I was in charge of around 35 ten year old junior hockey players.

The trip started on Thursday afternoon – everyone gathered to the Kauniainen ice rink to embark a short bus journey to the ferry terminal in Helsinki. The whole team got sponsored Warrior backbags – and I got one, too. It is surprisingly good bag and I could fit all my stuff needed for four days trip into it. I’m planning to use it also outside ice hockey related travels – probably the best backbag I’ve owned.

Anyhow, we took the bus to the ferry terminal and boarded the ship to Stockholm. The ferry trip started with a dinner in the buffet and after that the players had some time off before it was time to go to bed. We had agreed a couple of games for Friday and then there would be two full tournament days, so the players needed to have as much sleep as possible. Fortunately, boys and girls of this age are not yet interested in hassling around during the night.

Travelling with Children — Near and Far

As mentioned a month ago, I had the pleasure of visiting DrupalCamp London with my two youngest children — Niilo (8y) and Seela (4y). My wife told me after I reserved the tickets that she wouldn’t go and wished me best of luck with my endeavour.
