Why Race Across The World?

Sharon: "It just looks amazing, it looks fun. I watched it with my family at home and Brydie was in Canada at the time and then we went out to visit and we watched it together. She just looked at me and I looked at her and we thought 'we could do this' and so that's exactly how it happened."

Do you have a strategy?

Brydie: "Not really. We're winging it."

Sharon: "The only thing we're doing, we're Mum and Daughter so we're sharing everything. So, one's got shampoo, one's got conditioner, you know, to lighten the load."

Brydie: "I think that's our best strategy, our relationship, because we're really tight."

What creature comfort have you brought with you?

Sharon: "We have a notebook to write stuff in and what we've done. Then on the back it's a picture of all four of us [in the family]."

Brydie: "We'll be using the notepad for everything: directions, how much money we're spending, that will go in that notebook. We also want to write down notes so if we hear a good fact that we think my sister or dad will like then we'll write that down."

What will your biggest challenges be on the race?

Brydie: "Geography and directions. We're not very good at naming capital cities."

Sharon: "In fact, how embarrassing was this? I don't know if I should confess this but when we were told we were going to Tokyo, I thought that was a country in itself! So, yes, I hope we don't come across really stupid. But it's all about education, everything's a learning curve."

Race Across The World continues Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC One.
