The World Cup is over, sadly, and now we have to wait until 2018 to watch it in Russia. If you were anything like me this year, you planned on traveling to Brazil to watch the games, but upon realizing how insanely expensive both the flights to Brazil and the price of tickets were, you decided to just stay home and watch it from your living room.

It turns out, there’s an alternative — and it doesn’t even involve going to the host country.

The guys from Mixologi instead traveled to four separate European countries to watch six World Cup games with the local fans. They went to Croatia and watched a game in the amazing Pula Arena, then they went to Germany and watched the eventual victors play Ghana at the Brandenburg Gate with crowds of cheering Germans, then they watched Italy beat England in Venice, and then they watched France stomp Switzerland in Zurich.

This is absolutely the way to watch the World Cup, and I might have to plan on doing the same in 2018. After all, Europe has the highest concentration of die-hard soccer countries in the world, and watching with actual fans of the team is by far the best way to watch a match. Save the dates: June 8, 2018 to July 8, 2018, you’ll be touring Europe.
