Something old, something new, something good, something fun. I love being busy, I love helping out, I love travelling and I love learning new skills. If I can combine some of them, it’s even more perfect. So November is going to be perfect.
Lying lazy on the beach all day, is not my kind of holiday. I love reading books, but if I read I like to learn something new as well. At the same time I relax best when my hands are busy and my mind gets quiet and I get most energy when I’m working up a sweat and making somebody smile.
That’s what I hope to do in November, when I’m flying to Nicaragua to teach yoga and football to children in the poor suburbs of Masaya, the Cradle of Nicaraguan Folklore. For me it means going back to something old, back to my roots. My football roots to be precise. I played for years and years, being part of the highest youth teams of Spijkenisse, in those years known for it’s excellent youth academy. At the same time I will teach yoga, so I will incorporate something new for me (relatively) and probably for them.
And for my learning skills: half a day I’ll study Spanish at La Mariposa Spanish School. The other half will be football and yoga. And studying at the same time, because where I will be the yoga and football teacher for the kids, they will be my Spanish teachers. Is there a better way to spent a holiday?
You want to help me and the children in Masaya? You can, by donating some money to this project. Just sent me a note through the contact form.
