14 Americans are on an impromptu Amazing Race quest to get to the World Cup

They thought they had a direct flight from Houston to Natal. They were wrong.

Over 500 die-hard American soccer fans attempted to get on direct flights from Houston to Natal over the weekend in order to see the World Cup. 14 of those fans weren't able to make the second flight, because mechanical issues necessitated a smaller plane than expected. So these intrepid 14 American Outlaws found themselves on a multi-leg journey all over the place. Trinidad and Tobago. Guyana. They are on an #AOmazingRace, if you will.

Here is their story. So far.

Godspeed, travelers. We hope you make it.
