From Fromage & Baguette to Pizza, Pasta & Amore

From Fromage & Baguette to Pizza, Pasta & Amore

The last days crossing France were hard for Eva and Flo. To drive through the cities on the Côte d’Azur without a good working first gear with so many tourists is not the best idea. “Poor gearbox – this was not nice from us!” But after three stressed days in France they arrived Italy! Here they are driving also the cost way and had already passed the City of Genova and are staying now in the National Park of Cinque…

Late Summer Ride #4

Late Summer Ride #4

Trotz des kühlen und verhangenen Wetters kamen um die 30 Fahrzeuge zur vierten spätsommerlichen Ausfahrt über die Wiener Höhenstraße. Es wurde ein entspannter Tag am Kahlenbergparkplatz mit viel Zeit für Austausch zwischen Gleichgesinnten und gemütlichem Beisammensein sowie einen Besuch der beeindruckenden Panoramaterrasse mit einzigartigem Blick über Wien. Der Hauptbestandteil und zentrale Programmpunkt – die Ausfahrt über die Höhenstraße – wurde auch dieses Jahr wieder zum Highlight unseres (heuer im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes luftgekühlten) Treffens. Wir bedanken uns bei allen…

On the coast

On the coast

After many great days in Arneva they had to look forward and so Eva and Flo continued their trip. They are now going back the coast way of Spain and France to visit Italy. There are a lot of beautiful places and cities they have seen: Sleeping by the sea / Sant Carles de la Ràpita / Spain

All about Monserrates’ place and the city nearby

All about Monserrates’ place and the city nearby

As Eva and Flo arrived in Arneva (Orihuela-Alicante) Monserrate told them what they first have to do: “Relax”. So they did and enjoyed the first evening with a BBQ – the spanish way. The next days they where invited for lunch by the family and this was the only thing they really had to do. They got to know Manuel a friend of Monserrate who had learned to build Sofas. So Flo asked him if he can fix the right…

In the middle of France

The last three days Eva and Flo were travelling through France. On the countryside it is a very beautiful piece of land. To see as much as possible they took small roads through large valleys and romantic little cities. As you can see below! The bug and the caravan are still running fine. With big steps they move forward to reach Spain. Parc Naturel Région de Chartreuse/France Parc Naturel Région du Vercors/France Parc Naturel Région du Vercors/France Parc Naturel Région…

Aircooled at the lake

Aircooled at the lake

The first time the VW beetles club of Obergrafendorf hosted their event called Luftgekühlt am See at the Ebersdorfer See in Lower Austria. Despite a short but heavy rain shower it was very well attended and we had a great time there. Let’s hope that they host this meeting once again next year.

EuroTrip2015 – How the journey began

EuroTrip2015 – How the journey began

This year Eva and Flo finally decided to go on a trip. They bought a Qek caravan, like Domi’s and Zainab’s, a few months ago and began to restore it to receive an austrian licence. The car who will tow it has always been clear. It has to be Flo’s bug from 1966 – his loved first beetle. None of them had planned a route they just had directions and countries which they wanted to see. And there was just…

The last station of our trip was the AutoMuseum next to the Autostadt in Wolfsburg where we got a fascinating insight into the product history of Volkswagen. Among the main exhibits are many rare concept vehicles, prototypes and one-off models.

One day after the meeting in Hannover we visited the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, the home of Volkswagen. The ZeitHaus chronicles the history of the car – from an exclusive item for the very wealthy, to a necessity for the masses.

This was our first time at the May Cruise Madness – the meeting before the meeting, which was hosted by DFL – Der fieser Luftkühlers. This was just the beginning of the trip – stay “slammed and fooshed” for more pictures of our adventure! To wrap it up here’s a video of this aircooled evening!

30th Seiberer Bergpreis

30th Seiberer Bergpreis

This Oldtimer-contest has been organized by Erster Oesterreichischer Kleinwagenclub for twenty years now, and has established itself as a traditional act to start of the Austrian Oldtimer season. The Wachau in the province of Lower Austria with its mountain Seiberer (near Weiszenkirchen on the Danube) offers the appropriate scenic environment.    We had a great time being part of this event!
