The 2014 World Cup in Brazil has officially begun and is one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, with fans travelling from all corners of the globe. Whether you are a football fanatic or more relaxed unless there’s a World Cup on (like me) you’ll discover some staggering stats about those who travel, how much each country is spending on airfares and who’s travelling the furthest.

This will be Brazil’s second time hosting the FIFA World Cup, the last time being in 1950! Celebrating its 20th edition, the streets in Brazil have been decorated in an incredible fashion. If you have ever visited Brazil or know of the Rio carnival, you’ll know just how much love and passion that goes into lining the streets with colour and the World Cup is no exception..

This year’s sweepstakes was a complete disaster with myself managing to end up with Iran. It’s fairly safe to say I don’t think I’ll be celebrating this year with a winning team 🙁
