A Swiss Soccer Sneak Peak!

It's been a week since I have returned from my Swiss Soccer Sabbatical (you can read my travel journals on Soccer Newsday here and here) and I plan to give you a full write up on my adventures. For those of you who don't know (go read those hyperlinks, geez!) I went back to my roots to fall in love with soccer again. That, and:

1. Watch Young Boys - Udinese play in Europa League

2. Watch FC Zurich - Basel play in the Swiss Super League
3. Tour the Stade de Suisse, home of Young Boys and the Swiss National Team (formally known as "Wankdorf") and
4. To invade FIFA.

Really, that last one was my priority. 

Anyway, over the upcoming week I plan to give you a bit of background on each mini-adventure (the last two points documented by my official photographer/art director), but for this Sunday night, here's a little photo sneak peak of the trip over all.

Warning: they are self-indulgent. 

   Oh, wait, I already lied. This was taken in Germany. Note the lighthouse behind my back and the TFC pashmina around my neck. 

Reason for the Trip #1

Reason for the Trip #3. Note the Toronto Football Club tshirt.

Not a reason for the trip, but a glass of  Prosecco on a mountain top. Note the Toronto FC sweater.

I told you they were self indulgent.

And just indulgent. 

But I did some sight-seeing too!

However, let's face it, this was the real reason for the trip: FIFA invasion.

More to come soon. Promise.
