The Further Your Team Goes, the Closer you Get! #CelebrateCloser #ad

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Crest Latino and Latina Bloggers Connect

I have to admit that I am not a huge soccer fan. There, I said it. I grew up watching soccer because my papi loves it. But being born and raised in the United States, I liked the sports popular here in the United States like baseball.

This past week, I was in Costa Rica visiting my papi who had been in the hospital. Our visit coincided with the start of the big soccer games. I have to admit that hubby and I were not thrilled with the idea of hanging with my dad and watching soccer all day. But because that is what he likes, we did it.

What we found is that we actually enjoyed watching soccer once my dad started telling us the rules and the letting us know what was going on. We watched the opening ceremonies and then the first game and we were hooked. On the weekend, we had planned a trip to the beach with my dad and sister. That Saturday, Costa Rica was playing against Uruguay.

The resort we were staying at had a Tiki Bar where the game was going to be shown. We headed over and ordered some lunch and we all decided to watch the game. Hubby and I thought we would watch a little of the game and then head for the pool. Those plans did not happen. 

We started watching the game and Costa Rica was down 1 to 0. Then they rallied and came back to win the game. I cannot tell you how exciting it was to sit in a place where everyone was Costa Rican and rooting for their team! We caught Mundial fever and never looked back.  Soccer brought me closer to my family in Costa Rica.

  1. World Cup is insane, watched on reddit a video of brazil after a goal, and the how loud everyone's cheering was was so awesome.

  2. I'm so glad that your papi is doing better and that you were able to spend some good quality time with him. That's all that matters, soccer, bad breath and all. That being said, the next time you go if you need a personal southern secretary, I'll go!

  3. Glad you had a good time and started enjoying soccer (or football as the rest of the world knows it)
