summer plans III
What have our boys been up to?
JAVI MARTÍNEZ (!!!) & (PF) JUAN MATA: the two JMs won the U-21 Euro with Spain. That’s all.
FERNANDO TORRES: after a few days in Ibiza with his entire family, Fernando and Olalla were spotted in Sardinia. I love him for wearing short shorts.
CESC: he traveled to Indonesia with Kraft and Biskuat to promote the cookies, spending a few days in Jakarta and Bali. Cesc’ face appears in the cookie ads on buses in the capital city, and he’s very popular there, as evidenced by the very warm reception he received from local fans in his first ever visit to the country. In Bali, he also watched the final of a kids’ football tournament. (Watch his Biskuat commercial here, where he speaks a bit of bahasa, and view an ad here.)
VÍCTOR VALDÉS: Víctor took a break from his vacation to help out the FEM (Multiple Sclerosis Foundation), as he’s their patron. He attended an event to support research into the disease and to make life better for sufferers. He wrote on his Facebook, “it was a great event that I support 100 percent, because it’s an issue that really does touch me.”
SERGIO RAMOS: Sergio’s been seen in Marbella, but without the gold shorts he wore in previous summers (unfortunately, he was wearing shorts though).
Most recently, he’s been in Stockholm, hanging out with a strange mixture of representatives from the world of football, family and music, and once again showing his unique sense of style.
SERGIO BUSQUETS: he presented his second summer campus in his hometown of Badia del Vallés yesterday.
DAVID VILLA: he was in Ibiza with his entire family – parents, wife, children. The girls – Zaida and Olaya – are so adorable, no? I had expected our David to show up in a flowerly bathing suit, and he didn’t disappoint.
Several days later, David traveled to Gandia (Valencia) to promote the ice cream bar Maxibon (try one if you get a chance, they’re delicious!!).
GERARD PIQUÉ: Gerard’s been continuing with the Love Tour 2011 Summer Edition with Shakira in Greece. His bathing suit doesn’t surprise me either, as he wore it last summer.
ÁLVARO ARBELOA: Álvaro, Carlota and little Alba traveled to Disney World! He’ll also be holding his own football campus in Tres Cantos (Madrid) in July.
FERNANDO LLORENTE: Fer’s in New Delhi, India with the NGO Save the Children. Michael Robinson’s there too! (If you’re like me, Javi (!!!) pretending to be Michael Robinson comes instantly to mind whenever Michael is mentioned or seen). I think it’s great that he and Víctor have spent part of their summer doing charity work.
BORJA VALERO: Borja’s been busy tweeting up a storm from Ibiza (mostly the view and the food), and spending time with Fernando Navarro (remember him? He played on the Euro 2008 team). They showed us why some footballers should not be allowed to dress themselves.
