Day 14 on the Road to 2021 consisted of three interviews, two capital cities, one castle, and no fuel stops (or police stops, for that matter)! The team started the day in Bratislava, Slovakia, with two sponsor interviews - BioVectra and SanaClis - and a tour of two SanaClis facilities. Then it was back in the cars to explore the city of Bratislava, known for the Bratislava Castle, the scenic Old Town, and the green spaces that populate the city.

 

After a brief tour of the city, the team left Slovakia and crossed the border into Hungary, aiming to finish the day in the capital city, Budapest. It was a beautiful, clear day, and the team was able to enjoy the evening with a final interview held outside with Klaudia Franciska Fordor, a local freelance lawyer. The day ended with 154 miles traveled and 3 hours 35 minutes in the cars.
