Need to show your team spirit?

How do you support your Team?

The World Cup is already a week in and there have been some nail biting, pulse pounding matches and a few not so exciting ones. For those of you that are lucky enough to actually go to Brazil and see some of these games you’re probably showing your support by screaming in the stands or – if you’re one of those people – making your presence known by blowing on a vuvuzela. But for those of us that are not so fortunate, we have to show our support at home.

For me this usually involves watching the games from home with a bunch of friends and family, donning my soccer paraphernalia. In case you haven’t figured it out from the above image, I’m putting my support behind Team Germany this year and a really subtle but classic way to show team spirit is to throw on your team’s hat. If the hat’s too subtle you could step it up by representing the team Jersey. What better way to show team solidarity (other than body paint) by proudly wearing your team’s colors while watching the game? As for me, the Jerseys and hats are also way to comfortable and make great outdoor and athletic clothes.

If watching the world cup isn’t enough for you and you need to get your own game going, might as well represent your team while playing a game of pick-up soccer. Shorts and socks are all that you need to complete the look. Add a pair of cleats and a themed ball and you’re ready to get your game on while showing your team pride!

Hopefully one year I’ll be able to channel my super-fan side at an actual world cup game, but for now, I’m happy walking around with my Germany hat and screaming at the TV with my Jersey on.

What’s in My Travel Bag

I absolutely love my Kindle (I have two, the Kindle Fire and the Kindle with the Keyboard) because not only am I an avid reader, sometimes flying is the only free time I have for reading! With the Kindle Fire, I could also listen to my audibles and watch downloaded movies on the plane.

After flying for hours and checking in at a hotel, I love to relax in a jacuzzi or heated pool, so I always pack a swimsuit – just in case.  Plus, if your destination is close to a beach, you are all set without worrying about where you could find a swimsuit.

Since I rarely wear tennis shoes, do not want to lug a suitcase of heels and desire to wear a dress from time to time, I always bring a pair of heels made for dancing. It is light, functional and looks fabulous with any dress or jeans. When I visited New York City a couple years ago, I comfortably walked over 30 blocks in a pair of Capezio – without any blisters!

And of course, don’t forget your chargers, Apple products and sunscreen!

Food for the Soul

As I travel and discover new places, cultures and people, however, I appreciate how it broadens my horizon.

1. Opens my mind. I organically learn about new and diverse places, people and cultures  that may or may not do things the same way as Americans. Even if I travel to the same place more than once, each experience is new – and different. And I love delicious food from all over the world, from a cart in the middle of the street to a restaurant in the middle of an isolated island.

2. Challenges me to thrive. By far, I am not the most athletic person. I am afraid of heights, and I cannot swim well.  However, I have challenged myself by (safely) zip lining in Costa Rica and black water rafting in Rotorua, which made snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef a piece of cake!  I come back loving myself and appreciating life even more!

3. Allows me to see the beauty of a people globally.  All over the world, I’ve discovered that many of us value inner beauty – love, respect, purity, integrity, friendships and family. There are people in Fiji who are happy just because they are surrounded by beautiful lagoons and clear blue sky. There are people in Slovenia who are happy just because they are surrounded by friends – and cooked wine.

Thus, go forth and explore!
