Spotted in Whanganui

Spotted in Whanganui

  The 22nd part of the Slow & Curious* series is being shot this easter weekend in Whanganui, right in front of the Aramoho Outback Campsite. Haven’t spotted anyone of the cast so far, but a few of the cars have already arrived. * the speed limit in New Zealand is 100 kilometers per hour…  

On the road again

On the road again

  Meet our van “Britzie”, which is going to be our home for the next three weeks. We got it today and made our way out of the city. It’s old, very thirsty, only has manual window winder (haven’t seen them for a while!), and see-saws a lot on the road. But at least it has air conditioning and power assisted steering. And it got us a ten percent discount on our first night’s stay: “Oh, you’ve got one of these Britzs?…

San Francisco

San Francisco

  Had a few nice days. But also quite exhausting, walking in the city is equally demanding like hiking in Yosemite…   Sea lions’ conversations: No. 1: “I told you, we should have gone to Ibiza…” No. 2: “Why don’t you book next years’ vacation then, you know-it-all?!?” No 3: “Could you two keep it down?

How to break into a car using a kitchen knife and a coat hanger

  Well, getting a taxi the morning after Mardi Gras Day is kind of difficult. We knew that.

So expecting that we had to wait for a long time or maybe even walk the three and something miles to the Bus station, we got up half past…

Welcome to Miami (Beach)

Welcome to Miami (Beach)

  YEEEAAAAHHHHHH ! I am in Miami Bitch! (We saw people wearing T-Shirts with that printed on). Yep we’re in Miami and what a difference it is to the Dominican Republic. It’s clean, tidy, by far not so noisy, a bit more expensive, and it feels cold ! Well in comparison at least. Still, lots of sun waves, people jogging, doing the one or the other kind of workout, hm, feel kind of bad for them. Anyway Miami seems to…

Volkswagen reveals New Beetle Concept

Volkswagen reveals New Beetle Concept

  Spotted in Santo Domingo: the 2015 New Beetle concept car. Two major differences to the predecessor model are striking. It’s obviously smaller than the established New Beetle and shows more resemblance to the original old Beetle. “We have committed ourselves to reduce our CO2 emissions by 20 percent to 2018, and the easiest way to achieve that is building smaller cars that need less energy”, VW spokesman Herman Käfer explains. Another explanation that was leaked to us by well-informed…
