  • Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Cup 2014

      FIFA Brazil ExcitementNothing more exciting is scheduled for this summer than FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Sports fans the world over will be making their way to Brazil for the international men's football (soccer to those in the United States!) tournament that is scheduled from June 12 to July 13, 2014. 

      World Cup has a long history; this year marks the 20th FIFA World Cup, with the first World Cup being in Argentina in 1930. It has been held every four years since then, with the exception of 1942 and 1946 due to World War II. In other words, World Cup is on par with the Olympics. 

      FIFA stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association, which oversees the sport. The tournament consists of 32 teams competing at venues within the host nation; this is the World Cup Finals and is the culmination of the previous three years of play and qualification. Currently, the champion is Spain. They won the tournament in South Africa in 2010 and are favored to win.  

      This is just the second time that Brazil was chosen to host the competition. FIFA chose Brazil after deciding that the tournament should be in South America. The last time the tournament was held in South America was in Argentina in 1978; the last time in Brazil was 1950. 

      There will be 64 matches played in twelve cities across Brazil in new or totally renewed stadiums. These matches will include all of the world champion teams since the World Cup began in 1930---Italy, Germany, Uruguay, England, France, Argentina, Spain and Brazil. 

      Brazil has a storied World Cup history as well, with five championships and once fielding the most well-known football player worldwide to ever play the game--Pele, who made 77 goals in just 92 appearances, Brazil's all-time leading scorer, who made a name for himself by making the winning game against its country's rival Argentina at the age of 16. Maracana stadium

      Awesome way to spend a week, or a whole month, in Brazil! My plans are to spend a week in Brazil seeing some of the sights, and I have already scored some tickets for myself and my brother and will be in the stands for the Spain vs. the Netherlands match on June 13 in Salvador! 

      I also got a great tip about transportation from a friend of mine who has spend lots of time in Brazil going to conferences. She said the taxi drivers sometimes scam tourists and it was safer to set up transfers online with Brazil Airport Transfers. She even said her plane was hours late and the driver was still waiting for her with a sign. That sounds like great service!

      Adult mountaineers have the prestige of reaching the Uhuru Peak, Mount Kilimanjaro’s summit which is the highest peak in Africa. But who says the Mount Kilimanjaro’s adventure is only for adults? Hiking Mount Kilimanjaro can be a child’s dream adventure with the once in a lifetime experience. Rising from the East African plains, the mountain is a popular tourist destination with the promise of treating its visitors the chance of watching the spectacular view of the glaciers on the summit with a breathtaking experience of watching the sun rise over the beautiful landscape.

      The Mount Kilimanjaro hike can be a great family adventure where parents can take their kids with them for a fun mountain trekking activity. Children below 10 years old however can hike up to 12,000 feet only. Only children 10 years and older may be admitted by the Tanzanian part authorities to climb the summit. Climbing the mountain can be a special bonding experience of children who are up to a climbing adventure with their parents. If you are planning to take your child with you it is possible to arrange the trip with the following tips and considerations:

      Prepare your child prior to the trip

      Preparing your child physically and mentally is very important. Make sure to give your child a briefing on what to expect during the activity. Make sure to buy them the appropriate equipment. Let your child wear it to get the feel of using the equipment to prepare them during the actual hike. It helps to let your child watch some videos on how it looks like to be there and what challenges to expect. It is important to ensure that you child is fit and well for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and you may find the need to obtain a medical clearance from your child’s pediatrician to be 100% sure they are physically ready for it.

      If you plan of taking your children with you up to the summit, you should consider the weather, the physical condition of your child and be realistic on what your child can achieve. The change in altitude can also cause some altitude sickness on your child thus you should prepare them prior to your planned trip.

      Plan your trip itinerary

      Children who are older than 10 years old have the opportunity of reaching the Roof of Africa or the mountain’s summit called the Uhuru Peak. There are different routes to get to the summit which is also an important consideration when climbing the summit with children. It is best to discuss with your travel guide about your route options to reach to the mountain summit. The Lemosho route is highly recommended to travelers with children because it takes a longer time to hike, giving longer time for acclimatization in the body to take place at uniktour.com/fr/voyage-kilimandjaro. You may also prefer to go with outfitters offering private toilets to make your child comfortable throughout the hike.

      Taking children with you to climb the Mount Kilimanjaro can cause some trouble along the way but the quality of bonding moments with them is priceless. It usually takes timely preparation in order to ensure that you get to hike the mountain with your children with less stress and worries.
