Hooping Around The World

Hoop Dancing in the Summertime

I had the great fortune to travel to Europe last month to visit a wonderful lifelong friend and her husband. I had some awesome travel buddies on the trip, including my twin sister who is also a hooper.

We stayed in Switzerland for the majority of the trip, but also took the train to Germany and France for a few days. All in all, I had many hooping adventures, ranging from hooping in 3 countries in 20 seconds, hooping to music provided by a party barge while the barge clan cheered us on, trying my hand at street busking for the first time and hooping in the gorgeous Swiss Alps. Luckily, my awesome friends, Sara, Amanda and Gwen were quite encouraging when it came to stopping for a hoop break (THANK YOU!). It was a trip of a lifetime that included many special memories with amazing friends and family.

I thought I’d share a few pics from my trip and hope you enjoy.
