It seems like the Cristiano Ronaldo has a bit of a selfie problem. No, we're not talking about the numerous selfies Ronaldo takes and posts on Instagram with the caption "mood," we're talking about the selfies that his admirers keep sprinting onto the field to take with the Portuguese star. Wednesday, Portugal took to the field to pose for a customary team photo before their Euro semifinal match against Wales and were joined by an unofficial twelfth member of the squad, a tournament volunteer.
The volunteer not only got to take a selfie with his hero, but he also managed to make Ronaldo chuckle by photobombing the Portuguese team. Definitely a moment that that boy will remember for the rest of his life (just look at that leap!), and one that we'll forgot in about twenty minutes. Still worth it though. On a more serious note, the on-field security at the Euros really need o find a way to halt fans from gaining such easy access to Ronaldo
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
