Jan. 22, 2020, 4:58 p.m. - We are one min away team 56
Jan. 22, 2020, 4:43 p.m. - Update team 56 - we have been picked up by a man driving to Valencia city centre where we will then walk to the hostel see you soon :)
Jan. 22, 2020, 4:04 p.m. - An update from Team 56- we have been dropped in a service station just north of Valencia about 20 minute drive to the hostel. Hoping to get a lift pretty quickly :))
Jan. 22, 2020, 12:06 p.m. - We arrived at an industrial estate, surrounded by trucks, cars were sparce. We stood in the torrential rain. All this to make it to a petrol station coming off a southbound motorway.
Would this pay off? Would our karma be returned to equilibrium with a stroke of good luck?
The answer is...
The first car that stopped at the petrol station is passing Valencia, WERE GOING TO MAKE IT!!!
We stood in rain, drove on snow, waited in negative temperatures, accosted way too many strangers, slept in service stations and cars alike, all in the good name of charity.
Please continue donating to any of us, we've had a blast, and thank you all for following our journey. Assuming no breakdowns occur, well be in Valencia in 5 hours. We'll post then!
Thank you all!
