Hubert Wirth, a 70-year-old German man, has arrived in Moscow from his hometown of Pforzheim near Stuttgart after a month-long trip on a vintage tractor, just for the World Cup, Russian media reported.

Wirth is a former Mercedes mechanic and an experienced tractor driver, who has traveled a lot in his modified 1936 Lanz Bulldog tractor, which to him is both a tiny house and at the same time a solid vehicle, Sputnik reported. The tractor is decorated with World Cup symbols and a sign that reads "Hallo, Moskau! (Hello, Moscow).''

The German fan and his badger-dog Hexe had to travel 1,550 miles, crossing Poland and Belarus — and did so without a hitch.
