The vehicle

You might think I drive around in some fancy jet-set car when I'm here. No, no. no ... I love the little Auto Bianco from 1983 that hardly can close the door and sounds like a v e r y old car. But it has so much charm and suits perfectly when you drive around in the small villages in these areas. And I think it's so cool actually, retro and very original! I love driving around in this vehicle, it suits the environment so well! Today I took mum and Lissie for a bumpy drive and showed them all the beautiful pastel colours in the buildings and the outstanding doors, all with it's own stunning embodiment.

  1. you two look so beautiful infront of that car, I think, big, expensive cars are so tacky anyway. it needs to get you from A to B, right? my finacé lives in london and when I am there, I see thousands of people driving around in their range rovers and I just think: guys you live in a city, what do you need that car for??? I think its just tacky!
    anyway, you look beautiful and I love that car!!

    2. Yes. this is a car. that always stays here. But we have a more sporty, family suited car else. For our extended family and all journeys we do with it, we might need a even bigger one.

      But i do agree, especially for the pollution!

  4. Which car are you driving to come from Zurich to South of France?
    I think this car is cute to drive, but to be honestI prefere a Mercedes or Range Rover more. Maybe I am alone with my opinion.

    1. Of course we have a good car with a strong engine to drive all the way to here, this is just an old car that always stays here. We have three different cars to choose from here which are more modern if you want. As you can imagine, ours is a sporty family car.

  5. Looks perfect for the circumstances. I am terribly uninterested in cars and I prefer to walk everywhere, but unfourtunately they are necessary sometimes. Also, where I live, spending money on flashy cars is considered very "new money". So it would not even give me exactly incerase my social standing to get a really expensive flashy car. That, paired with my complete lack of knowledge and interest in the matter, makes it the last thing on earth that I would spend any extra money on. Then that it needs to be safe and suited to my purposes, that is another thing.

    1. I tend to love cars, especially a Maserati or a old Jaguar ... But small cars are very suitable for many circumstances!

      I do agree that a very sporty, flashy car is very much new money though and attracts a lot of attentions.

  6. Do you/or M drive a Masserati or an other premium car? Maybe Mercedes?

    Have a nice Time in France!
