The eye of the volunteers - Day 23

Football is my favourite sport. Don't ask me why cause I don't truly have an answer for that. The thing is, football is my favourite sport and it's finally time for it in the games!
However, even with football starting, I still find myself missing all the other games that are done. I miss how I couldn't keep up with table tennis, I miss how small I was next to the volleyball players, I miss how insanely strong the rowing team had to be, but most of all, I miss the people I met. 
Football is my favourite sport, but maybe I will find something to miss in basketball, judo and all the others sports that are taking place this week.
That's the magic of the games, meeting people from all over Europe that do something different and learning to miss things that you've never considered before. Honestly, I can't wait to see what this week brings!
