We love a good mustache here at Direct Flight, so naturally we were excited to learn that about 150 mustachioed men from all over Europe gathered in Leogang, Austria, on Oct. 2, for the ultimate facial-hair contest, the European Beard and Moustache Championship.

In case you weren't able to attend because you were heeding the recently issued Europe travel alert, we gathered a bunch of photos for you. There's no better way to start the day.
