The Adventures of Team Gas Craic!

August 07th 2015

IMG_2296We are very excited to be the chosen charity for Team Gas Craic who are taking  part in the Mongol Rally 2015. The team are currently driving their Nissan Micra over a distance of more than 14,000km (that's a Nissan Micra!) through countries including the Czech Republic, Iran, Russia, and more. Here's their latest update all the way from Uzbekistan! "Car is still going strong (now sounds more like an articulated lorry than a 1L Micra..!) and while we're wasting away in the heat losing litres and litres of fluids every day in the 46 degree heat, the people we've met so far have been amazingly hospitable, from an Iranian family passing us a bottle of homemade lemonade in Tehran rush-hour traffic moving at 60kmph, to the man who owned the ice-cream shop in the small border town we stopped by aIMG_2294t 11.30pm after driving around the town for an hour looking for somewhere to stay thinking an ice-cream would ease some of the tension in the car only to find that he was so excited so meet visitors from Ireland that the ice-cream was free-of-charge and he hopped in to the car to direct us to the only motel which was hidden down a series of side streets! Faith in humanity is at an all-time high! "   You can follow team's  adventure on their facebook page  and show them your support by donating here!
