However, in keeping with the truly diverse and cosmopolitan nature of the city, its nightlife caters to everyone – including sports fanatics. Whether you’re a football (soccer) fan or an NBA enthusiast, here’s where to go when there’s a game you simply can’t miss.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
