T3 Season Opening

I’ve had this beautiful 1980 air-cooled T3 for a little less than a year. I bought it shortly after someone had found it in a barn and redone all the engine work. Thanks to that it runs very smoothly and has done barely any miles. Exactly because it was a barn find and work had only been done to the engine bay none of the interior camping utilities worked. Being a Carthago camper conversion a lot

MUC//LDN roadtrip part 2

After lunch I got back on the road, heading towards Saarbrücken, driving through the beautiful National Park Des Vosges. Just like on the previous day my plan was to be doing some hiking through the amazing landscape. One of the best things about venturing through the outdoors by car is having the freedom to access more remote places and really explore, and sometimes you just have to get out of the car to really experience the locations you see. I feel like vision is not enough to truly …

WEEKEND DRIVE – taking out the BMW for the first drive in 2 weeks

Since I was in Glasgow, Tuscany and Munich over the last two and a half weeks I didn’t have any opportunity to drive the 1986 BMW e30.

We also took a look at the Glasgow cathedral which has two floors! After spending the first couple of days in Glasgow we got a train to …
