"It’s my first year playing for the club and my first time being in Portugal. Being a pro overseas, there’s so much free time! My favorite place, other than the gym, is Algar Seco, Carvoeiro, the Algarve is like paradise, I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s beautiful and refreshing. I explored and met great people in Algarve. The food is great too! I literally enjoyed my entire time with no complaints other than the excessive staring, and that wasn’t because of my height, it was because of my pantufa I wore everyday. Yes, I learned a few words! Haha."
