It's never too early to start thinking about those long summer holidays and the perfect summer vacation for football fans. Soccer Aloud app for iPhone is a great complement to your holidays.
If you're planning a weekend getaway or a longer trip involving air travel, here are 7 ways that Soccer Aloud can help get your summer travel off to a great start:
The trip to the airport
If you're lucky enough to live in Copenhagen, it won't take long to get to your terminal, but for the rest of us it's a journey just to get to the airport. If you're bringing kids with you, set them up with some football articles in Soccer Aloud before you leave home and you won't hear a peep from them until you get to the airport. If you're in the US with vacations starting in June, you can have them follow along with news from Canada and the 2015 Women's World Cup. If your summer break starts later, why not give them access to some club history so that they get some real education before they go back to school.
Waiting for your flight
You'll be spending anywhere from 1 to 3 hours at the airport before your flight. Might as well enjoy that time by catching up on the results of any football friendlies.
On the plane
Soccer Aloud is perfect for plane travel. Planes are noisy places with terrible network connections. What better place to don some noise-canceling headphones and listen to some football talk. For a change of pace, why not check out The Football History Boys or learn something about a league you don't normally follow? There's a ton of good stuff on the Bundesliga by Uli Hesse or at Bundesliga Fanatic or Bayern Central.
At the pool
If you enjoy spending time relaxing in the sun at the edge of a pool, you're going to need some entertainment to stop you from getting bored. Grisham can only get you so far. Cue up some good listening in Soccer Aloud and drift off to sleep with an in-depth analysis of Messi's contribution to Barcelona.
Taking in the sights
I don't know where you'll be, but they probably play football. Going to the birthplace of a soccer star? Taking a tour of a stadium? Download some web pages with info about where you're going, bring Soccer Aloud, and get an audio tour like you'd get in the finest museums.
On the beach
Reading's a fun activity on the beach, but when the sun is high, the glare makes it really hard. Why not listen instead? Soccer Aloud lets you hear articles that you might normally read and it works without a network connection.
We all have a tendency to overconsume when we go on holiday. Whether you had a particularly heavy meal or too much sangria, mornings can be a great time for relaxation and recovery. Soccer Aloud is there to lift your mood and keep you entertained with almost no effort on your part.
