The site offers exclusive blogs and photography and reports on each of the team’s four exhibition games during their 11-day tour of Italy and Greece.
Here’s a sampling of what’s available….
“The food on the trip so far has been great. Lunch was delicious. We ate at a restaurant about two blocks from the Coliseum. We ate lasagna, salad, bread, and a chocolate cake. We drank water and Fanta Orange pop. Dinner was even better,” writes Devan Bawinkel in his blog. “The servers spoiled us with several appetizers like mushrooms, cheeses, and meatballs. The huge meal consisted of steak, spaghetti, noodles with mushrooms, and tiramisu. We drank orange juice which was the best and freshest orange juice I have ever had.”
And, from : “At 9:30 a.m. Jarryd and I joined some other members of the Hawkeye traveling party on a mini tour of Rome. Our tour guide, Daniella, first took us to a Monk cemetery inside a church which was decorated with the bones of dead monks. It was a bit creepy but extraordinary to see. Next we saw the Spanish Steps, which is an incredible area with a church and a monument at the top then hundreds of stairs leading down to the street and a fountain below. The view from the top was a sight to see and the area was very popular with many locals hanging out.”
