After an early morning shoot at Lake Garda I had to start a drive back to Switzerland to return the Nissan GT-R to Nissan Schweiz. I know I am really lucky to even get access to cars like this, with price tags so high that I am not in the position right now to buy […]

When it was time to drive south to Brescia for the Cars & Coffee I was determined to find a good scenic route for the GT3. The fastest way would have been to take the highway from Zürich but instead I chose to take the road to the St. Moritz direction. To find open mountain […]

Last month I picked up a black Alfa Romeo 4C from Motorvillage Zürich for a five day test drive. The car was booked for earlier dates in May but because some mountain passes I expected to be open mid-May were not open yet, I moved the dates a few weeks forward. This was not the […]

When I knew I would include the road Grimsel Pass on my road trip route with the Nissan 370Z Nismo, I decided now was the time to book also a night in the Historisches Alpinhotel Grimsel Hospiz (website here). I remember looking at this hotel already in 2012 when I drove up on Grimsel Pass […]

When the first thing you see in the morning when you look out from the window is a beautiful sun rising behind a mountain silhouette, life is quite good. This was the view I had from my hotel room at Grimsel Hospiz, and with a relaxing background sound of babbling water from Grimselsee it is […]

After my drive on Colle del Nivolet I set the navigation to take me to my hotel for the next night, Grimsel Hospiz. This hotel is located directly on Grimsel Pass and is definitely the most luxurious hotel you can find directly on this road. Such an amazing place that I will have to dedicate […]

I am trying to come up with as many flattering words as possible to describe the fantastic driving route I enjoyed on the second day of the road trip with the Nissan 370Z Nismo. However it almost feels like I am running out of words again and just want to let the photos do the […]

Friday morning, 5th of September, I drove to Nissan Switzerland to pick up a new road trip ride. A Nissan 370Z Nismo. It was a tired girl who was not completely recovered from the Barcelona trip that got there. I had my moments driving to Nissan that morning when I was almost regretting I had […]

I like route planning. For myself maybe more than I do for other people, because I sometimes drive 10-12 hours per day… Easily. With very few stops. That is one of the reasons why travelling alone (or with the dog) is much less complicated – I only have myself to take care of, and no […]

A house in Italy. Outside the house a collection of cars. Modern cars and classic cars. The most precious ones hidden inside the garage. Early morning, seated on the terrace with a fresh cup of coffee, with a sleeping dog next to me. Looking at the sun rising over Tuscan hills. I let my eyes […]

On the route back from Italy and last day I had the Toyota GT86 I wanted to do a different mountain pass. I did Gotthard Pass when I drove down, but did not want to repeat the same route on my home journey. Wanted to try something new instead. San Bernardino Pass is a mountain […]

When I managed to book a Toyota GT86 for five nights (hallelujah, Swiss press cars here I come…) I knew it was road trip time. I have been craving to drive that car since I had it for a long weekend in Helsinki last summer. I loved it. After our five night adventure I still […]

Last photos from 2014 Geneva Motor Show comes here. Several personal cravings in this gallery to be honest… Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, BMW M3 and M4, Mazda MX-5 (check out the interior on the 1st gen MX-5 they had there – fantastic), Jaguar F-type Coupe, Subaru WRX STI and so on. I also liked the […]

Yesterday evening I arrived home again after spending three days in Geneva for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The nights between Sunday and Wednesday I slept a total of about nine hours. You can go on for a few days with very little sleep, but after three nights you are really starting to run out […]

I am trying to organize all files on my external hard drive and found a lot of photos from the 2012 road trip that I have not published here. Sure, the photos are from 2012, but Stelvio Pass looks beautiful and it is nice to have these photos in the blog archive as well. In […]
