Details of Vita’s long journey
Vita, recently in an interview, discussed the details of the long trip he had to make to get to London. In this interview, Vita says he had to overcome different challenges during the trip, but the journey and destination were worth it.
For his part, Vita comments that one of the biggest challenges was overcoming the terrain of Central Asia, and the other challenge was finding car insurance in each country he had to cross. Vita says she had to spend several days in Germany to contact insurance.
On the other hand, Vita comments that it was very easy for the car to suffer any failure on the trip. At one point during the trip, the car even broke down. Vita explains that all four wheels of the car were destroyed, and it was difficult to get a mechanic to fix them because of the language barrier.
However, Vita says that despite the difficulties, he loved the trip and is happy to be able to enjoy the ALGS playoffs. In addition, Vita says that throughout the trip, Apex Legends fans motivated him to continue, and at the Finnish Border, he met some customs agents who were Apex Legends players. On the other hand, Vita comments that the Apex Legends community has been very kind to him both on the trip and in London.
Vita also commented that he didn’t know what he was getting into before starting his trip. He wanted to fulfill one of his biggest dreams. So he is happy to have achieved them.
Finally, Vita’s long journey from Shanghai to London was made to support his local favorites, MDY White and DreamFire.
