I met Hanns while watching the Mexico vs. Brazil match at Alpine Village in Torrance, CA. A true football fan and world traveler, Hanns has visited 40 countries and 53 islands in his adventurous life. Fluent in Spanish from his 8 years living and working as a musician in Venezuela, it seems his adventurous stories would take yet another lifetime to retell. Still, with all that he has seen, he has never lost sight of where he comes from. This coming July he will travel home to Coburg, Germany along with 200,000 visitors who trek from all across the globe to participate in the International Samba Festival.
Between watching corner kicks and freestyle flopping, if you're lucky enough to view a match with Hanns- you're in for a real treat. The free life lessons extend beyond the pitch into the game of life.
