Growing up in New England and being loyal to my Boston Bruins hockey team I never image watching and or liking soccer (football to the rest of the world). This all stemmed from my international travels and the only sports available to watch was soccer internationally. This is a great example of traveling and learning new things may it be culture, food, politics, religion or sports in my case. Soccer is a great sport to watch and it is so simple and my favorite is NO commercials. I am very impatient and when I watch American sports there is a commercial every available second which I hate. I watch the Barclay Premier League (BPL) which opened today and my team Liverpool won. After several years of watching the BPL I had to select a team to route for and it had to be Liverpool with a great history and the owner is the same as the Boston Red Sox. My next trip to Europe will be to England to watch a game and it is my turn. My wife had her turn by us going to Paris France which she is the boss.
Also the World Cup is an exciting and the whole world is watching. I am from New England with a passion fan base but soccer is incredible. So travel can really change your point of view in some way and I am grateful for a new sport to watch. Travel Smart and Travel Safe.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
