PHOTOS FROM CSU'S TRAIN RIDE TO MILAN, THE DUOMO
It’s Marlee checking in! Today we started our day off with a three-hour train ride to Milan. This was actually mine and Kelsey's first train ride ever! I was super pumped about it! The train was way more modernized than I expected it to be, but that's probably because I live in a fantasy world and expected it to look just like the one in Harry Potter.

We took a cab to our hotel, and it's amazing how much different Milan is from Rome. Milan is way more city-like, and kind of dirty, whereas Rome was more old school and traditional. After we arrived at our hotel, we went and ate at the Italian National Team training center. I would've never thought they had what was like a restaurant and a bar and what not in there. Once we filled up on carbs, we rested and then watched the Italian men's national team. The guys we were watching are trying to make the travel roster. They are on the national team, but they only take 12 with them to London for the Olympics. I have never really watched men's volleyball before, but just watching them practice was amazing. They were so athletic and powerful! It was awesome. It definitely got some of us riled up and ready to play.
Well, that about sums up our day! I am having the time of my life on this trip and couldn't have asked for better people to come with! I'm excited to see what else is in store for us!
God bless America,
