Hello everyone! I'm Ashley Tomich, a new DREAMer, and a member of the Synchroettes Junior team. After a flight departing from Newark, NJ on Wednesday night and a quick layover in Copenhagen, Denmark we safely arrived in Göteborg, Sweden thursday morning. We stopped at our beautiful hotel, the Novotel, to drop all of our luggage change so we could head over to the rink to have our first practice. Although our feet felt a bit swollen from flying, we did lots of skills and a few parts of the program to get used to the ice and get our knees bending. After practice, we went back to the hotel and had an early dinner and were all very happy to get to bed early as we all felt a little bit of the jet lag.

Stay tuned for more updates to come from other DREAM skaters here in Sweden. Go USA!
