…. It is 3am… And I’m blogging in the airport lounge with a massive headache as I await my onward flight from Munich to São Paulo.. I am not a football fan… And I cannot help but ask myself why I’m doing this. But when I turn and see the man sitting on my left, I remembered it is one of the items in his bucket list, so yes, I’m here… Are you checking off your bucket list with your hubby? 😉

。。。。凌晨3点钟。。。头在晕。。目在眩。。写错字,请谅解。。。等着值机,由慕尼黑飞往巴西观看世界杯。。。不爱足球的我跟着这帮家伙一块儿疯。。不时问自己。。。why.。。。why am I doing this。。。在看看似乎找回童真的老小孩,突然发觉that’s why…就是你。。老公,你的遗愿清单,我要跟您一起完成,所以我来了。。。
