Translation for 140 languages by ALS
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.
Explore. Dream. Discover

Acquiring an interest in European soccer

One of the aims in travelling around is to see, if not somewhat appreciate, how other peoples live and socialize and work and simply 'make do' with the resources at their disposal.

Outside of America, nations go mad for soccer. There must be about three or four international "football" championships in a season! Currently playing out is the blandly titled Euro 2012. I'd rather watch coverage of Wimbledon but being the lone American in the hostel you can guess which sport gets time on the communal television.

England lost earlier this week as did Portugal and tonight is Italy versus Germany which usually I still wouldn't care one way or another...

Go Italy! Go Germany!

but with such motivation as these I can certainly feign an interest.
Wouldn't want to be an ugly American, now would I?
