This is from the blog of two people who crossed Africa in a Fiat Panda. I don't think I would want to take this trip (well, maybe). What a cool thing to travel. I have never test driven the Panda. I honestly don't know if I'll like it. It looks like a real fun car. I don't actually know what has gotten into me, but I want my car to be fun to drive. Juergen has the very big "practical" beast of a car. It has loads of room and feels like a house on wheels. Fun is not a word I would use to describe Juergens car (sad but true). I generally travel in my car alone, or with one or two kids. I take short trips in the city. I need something easy to park, and cheep to run. I hardly ever drive on the autobahn. I guess so much of my life is pretty dull. Driving does not need to be fun...but I want it to be fun. Maybe it's a midlife crises? I love my family but some times I feel like I never give myself what I "want". Is there anything really wrong with liking a sporty little thing of a car? It has 6 airbags, and a solid roll cage for safety. I don't plan on drag racing with it. I just want it to steer like a sports car, and move like a sports car. I have a young heart, and some times I feel so old.
