Power, great choice on Brazil...I went to the World Cup in
2006 in Germany and was one of those things you have to do in your lifetime.
People from all over the world - watching matches, really friendly people, beer
gardens, Hofbrau house, castles, museums, tours and what not.
I'm planning on heading again to Brazil in 2014. My 1
brother and 1 friend said they'd go so far, but you never know who is going to
pony up as it's a pretty big trip. If you're interested let me know if you need
people to travel with...You never know what's going on like 2 yrs from now, but
depending on how much time I can take off from work or mini-break for a couple
months, would be good to get to some other countries like Peru, Chile,
Argentina, and Ecuador-Galapagos Islands while I'm down there.
Tickets are via lottery and go on sale in Feb/March usually,
so that part is only 6 months away. I made the mistake last time of not
applying as the demand in Europe was really great and only got 1 game, still
was worth it for the experience...not sure what it will be like in Brazil, but
figured on applying for team specific tickets that guarantees you all of US'
base tickets and also if they make it to the playoffs and I'd apply to lots of
individual tickets. You don't know who you are going to see until the brackets
are made like 6 months later.
