International Perspectives

The only international perspective I have is going to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The game that I watched was Spain vs. Netherlands. The match was a great contest, but Netherlands came out on to with a 5-1 ending score. The hardest part about this trip was the traveling part. I was not use to flying internationally, and the language barrier was making everything complicated as well. Even when we made it to the stadium there was like a 15-minute delay to find our seats. Besides USA I wanted to see the Netherlands play. I have been a fan of Ajren Robben and Robin Van Persie for a while now, and it was awesome to see them finally play. I believe this trip made me even more thankful for sports because even though it’s the same game, people appreciate it much differently in Brazil.
